The agreement follows a competitive bidding process, resulting in the 1,524 capacity at McRae increasing to house up to 2,275 male inmates. The expansion will generate short-term construction jobs and continued workforce stability for the facility's professional correctional staff.
"CCA is proud to be able to continue serving the FBOP with a cost effective solution at McRae and maintain the careers and livelihoods of our correctional team," said Tony Grande, CCA Executive Vice President and Chief Development Officer. "We've been a part of the community for more than ten years and we want to thank the McRae and greater Telfair County community for their strong support throughout this process, which was a valuable component to our successful bid."
The new FBOP four-year management agreement contains three, two-year renewal options, enabling CCA to provide services at McRae through the year 2022.
"CCA McRae has an outstanding track record of operating a secure facility for both the inmates entrusted to our care and for the citizens of McRae," said Ron Thompson, CCA Vice President of Operations. "This renewal is a testament to the dedication and hard work of our team at McRae, who I know look forward to sustaining our track record of outstanding performance and safety at the facility."
As correctional systems across the nation face a number of convergent challenges including rising costs, high recidivism rates and overcrowding, CCA remains a dedicated and dependable partner with governments at all levels, working hard to find practical solutions.
