Annotation: COSTS ARE ESTIMATED FOR NEW JERSEY'S COMPLIANCE WITH THE CORRECTIONS STANDARDS OF THE COMMISSION ON ACCREDITATION FOR CORRECTIONS.
Abstract: THE PROCESS OF ESTIMATING COSTS INCLUDED AN ANALYSIS OF RESOURCE IMPACTS WITHOUT REFERENCE TO ANY PARTICULAR SITE, ONSITE VISITS TO DESCRIBE THE NATURE OF A DEFICIENCY IN RESOURCE TERMS, PREPARATION OF DATA COLLECTION INSTRUMENTS, AND COMPILATION OF RESULTS. ACTIVITIES PERFORMED BY THE STANDARDS MANAGEMENT TEAM AT THE STATE LEVEL WERE SELF-EVALUATIONS TO IDENTIFY DEFICIENCIES, PREPARING PLANS OF ACTION WHICH INDICATED TYPES OF RESOURCES NEEDED FOR COMPLIANCE, AND ADMINISTERING DATA COLLECTION INSTRUMENTS. THERE WERE 480 CASES OF NONCOMPLIANCE WITH 183 STANDARDS IN ADULT INSTITUTIONS, COMMUNITY RESIDENTIAL CENTERS, AND PAROLE FIELD SERVICES; 143 OF THESE CASES AND 71 STANDARDS WERE DESIGNATED BY ORGANIZATIONAL UNITS AS NEEDING ADDITIONAL RESOURCES FOR COMPLIANCE. RESOURCES NEEDED FOR COMPLIANCE ARE ESTIMATED TO BE BETWEEN $17.5 AND $19.1 MILLION, WHICH IS 20-25 PERCENT OF THE DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS ADJUSTED FISCAL 1979 APPROPRIATION. ABOUT 15 PERCENT OF THE TOTAL IS FOR PERSONNEL AND OTHER OPERATING EXPENSES, WITH THE BALANCE GOING TO EQUIPMENT AND FACILITIES. TABULAR DATA ARE PROVIDED. (AUTHOR ABSTRACT MODIFIED--RCB)
