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 Start Printed Page 49771dividing the number representing Bureau of Prisons facilities' monetary obligation (excluding activation costs) by the number of inmate-days incurred for the preceding fiscal year, and then by multiplying the quotient by 365. In 2012, however, there were 366 days, so we multiply the quotient by 366 for 2012.

Under § 505.2, the Director of the Bureau of Prisons determined that, based upon fiscal year 2012 data, the fee to cover the average cost of incarceration for Federal inmates in Fiscal Year 2012 was $29,027.46 ($79.31 per day). (Please note: There were 366 days in FY 2012.) The average annual cost to confine an inmate in a Community Corrections Center for Fiscal Year 2012 was $27,003 ($73.78 per day).
