                                      Executive Summary

The Department of Corrections has historically provided inmate labor, by way of Community
Work Squads, to work for other governmental agencies such as the Department of
Transportation and Department of Agriculture, cities, counties, municipalities and non-profit
organizations.

In total, these Community Work Squads performed 6,426,353 hours of work valued at more
than $68.3 million, and after costs, provided the citizens of Florida with a net cost savings/value
added of $38.5 million. Through the process of making these inmate work squads available to
other governmental agencies and non-profit organizations the Department is able to assist
these outside entities with their needs while continuing to fulfill its mission of providing an
efficient corrections system for the citizens of Florida.

            Summary of Community Work Squad Hours Worked, Value, and Cost Savings:

•    Department of Transportation Work Squads: These work squads work under the Master
     Agreement between the Department of Corrections and the Department of Transportation
     (DOT). The work squads are supervised by both agencies. These work squads generate
     revenue for the Department of Corrections. In fiscal year 2003-04, DOT work squads
     performed 2 million hours of work valued at $15.2 million. Work performed includes all types
     of roadway and right-of-way work to help maintain the state's highway system.
•    Public Works and Interagency Community Service Work Squads: These work squads
     perform under local agreements between correctional institutions and governmental
     agencies and non-profit organizations. These work squads do not generate revenue for the
     Department of Corrections. In fiscal year 2003-04, the work squads performed 3.8 million
     hours of “free” labor at a value of $46.1 million dollars. Work performed by these squads
     includes grounds maintenance, landscaping, litter removal, recycling, construction projects,
     renovation, natural disaster cleanup and maintaining our state forests and parks.
•    Contracted Work Squads: These work squads were initially authorized by the 1997
     Legislature, an authorization that has continued to date, and requires the governmental
     entity to pay for the services of the work squad. These work squads generate revenue for
     the Department of Corrections. On June 30, 2004, the Department had 44 active contracts
     involving 48 positions supervising contracted work squads. In fiscal year 2003-04, the
     contracted work squads performed 572,558 hours of work valued at $6.9 million.

This program also serves to provide meaningful work for inmates and assists with the inmate’s
transition back into the community by developing and sharpening work skills and providing a
sense of accomplishment through positive work experiences.

*Exclusive of work performed for DOT, the value of remaining work is determined by multiplying
the hourly wage value of $12.10 times the hours worked. The hourly wage value of $12.10 is a
benefited hourly wage value. The base hourly wage value is determined from the Florida
Occupational Wages 2004 Edition prepared by the Florida Agency for Workforce Innovation.
Added to this base hourly wage value are benefits for social security, retirement, health and
basic life insurance.
