Contract between City of Orlando and The Florida Department of Corrections


On April 15, 2014, the City of Orlando and the Department of Corrections, "Department", entered into a contract for the provision of inmate labor crews, "Contract," to assist in maintaining landscape areas throughout the City. The Contract also provided for a one-year renewal which the City exercised on March 9, 2015.  Based on the success of the program, staff recommends entering into a new Contract on the same terms for an additional year, beginning April 29, 2016, with a one year renewal option.  Per the Contract, the Department provides two, six-person inmate work squads and two corrections officers to supervise them, for forty hours a week.  The City pays the salaries and position-related expenses of the assigned correction officers but not inmate labor.  Using these crews significantly reduces the cost of landscape maintenance throughout the City.   

Fiscal & Efficiency Data: Costs will be paid from General Fund 0001_F, STW0007_C.  FIS Attached.
