SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

28 CFR part 505 allows for assessment and collection of a fee to cover the average cost of incarceration for Federal inmates. We calculate this fee by dividing the number representing Bureau facilities' obligation (excluding activation costs) by the number of inmate-days incurred for preceding fiscal year, and then by multiplying the quotient by 365 (or, since 2000 was a leap year, by 366).

Under § 505.2, the Director of the Bureau of Prisons has reviewed the amount of the fee and has determined that, based upon fiscal year 2000 data, the fee to cover the average cost of incarceration for Federal inmates is $21,601.
