US Department of Justice: Office of the Federal Detention Trustee

Problem: The Department of Justice was using a home grown system to determine the availability of prison space

Challenge: System was hard to maintain and update

Solution: Online prison availability system, users can search for facilities based on location, USMS district, ZIP Code, or Federal Court City. Search results can be filtered by distance or by whether a contract exists for the facility. Users can sort search results by Facility Name, Per Diem Rate, or Distance. In addition, users can generate a PDF rendition or an Excel spreadsheet of the search results. Local sheriffs can update facility records.

Benefits/Results: Lower cost of operations, ease-of-use, time savings
