April 16th, 2010

At the 2010 ACA Winter Conference, attendees identified operating costs as the No. 3 issue facing them in 2010. In a recent blog, we noted that outsourcing prison operations can save operators somewhere between 10 to 20 percent of prison operation costs.

Learn How to Cut Costs and Optimize Performance

April 1st, 2010

AS DHS/ICE considers a program to standardize its detention facilities for immigrant detention, one of the agency’s major challenges will be coalescing diverse operations, locations and operational philosophies. Creating facility standards for a diverse set of existing and potentially new structures can be daunting. Add to that the challenges of achieving operational consensus among a broad group of experienced detention and corrections professionals- and the task appears overwhelming. They have found that there is a method that solves these challenges and has achieved proven success.


In our free webinar, How to Coalesce Diverse Detention Operations to Adopt Uniform Facility Standards, David Robillard, President of Performa’s Justice Group, shares this method in detail.


You will learn:

o    How to select and recruit a facility prototype development team

o    The key steps of the prototype development process

o    How to structure and conduct strategic modeling workshops

o    How to develop the right solution criteria

o    The advantages of macro analysis


David will also describe how macro analysis allowed the Buffalo Federal Detention Facility to acquire additional funding from Congress and delivered a high level of operational and organizational efficiency.
