Annotation: THIS VOLUME, THE FIRST IN A SERIES, DESCRIBES THE EVOLUTION OF THE SCRMS (STATE CORRECTIONAL RESOURCES MANAGEMENT SYSTEM) CONCEPT, EXPLAINS THE SEVEN SCRMS SYSTEMS, AND THE STRATEGIES TO IMPLEMENT THEM.
Abstract: THE SCRMS MODEL INCLUDES SEVEN KEY RESOURCE MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS: PERSONNEL MANAGEMENT, BUDGET CONTROL, INVENTORY CONTROL, PRISON INDUSTRY, FOOD SERVICES, MAINTENANCE, AND INMATE TRANSPORTATION. STATE DEPARTMENTS OF CORRECTION WILL BE ABLE TO TAILOR SCRMS TO THEIR RESPECTIVE NEEDS. DEVELOPED AS A MODULAR CONFIGURATION WITH VARIABLE COMPONENTS, THE SCRMS DESIGN PROVIDES MAXIMUM FLEXIBILITY AND TRANSFERABILITY FOR ALL PARTS OF THE STRUCTURE. IN THIS VOLUME, THE MODEL IS DESCRIBED BY A DEFINITION OF EACH RESOURCE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM, A DETAILING OF THE APPLICATIONS COMPOSING THE SYSTEM, THE REPORT (OUTPUT) CHARACTERIZING EACH APPLICATION, AND A LISTING OF DATA ELEMENTS NECESSARY TO SUPPORT THEM. MAJOR STEPS IN IMPLEMENTING SCRMS ARE PROJECT PLANNING, STATE SELF-ANALYSIS, SYSTEM SPECIFICATIONS, TECHNICAL SYSTEMS DESIGN, AND ACHIEVING OPERATIONAL STATUS. THE REPORT INCLUDES A BRIEF DISCUSSION ON THE FUTURE OF SCRMS, FIGURES, TABLES, PHOTOGRAPHS, AND A SELECTED BIBLIOGRAPHY. FOR VOLUMES 2 AND 3 IN THIS SERIES, SEE NCJ 66959-60. (PRG)
