The Federal Bureau of Prisons (BoP) is responsible for the custody and care of about 209,000 federal inmates -- a population which has grown by 44% over the last decade. In FY 2008 and 2009, the Pres. requested additional funding for BoP because costs for key operations were at risk of exceeding appropriated funding levels. This report examined: (1) how BoP estimates costs when developing its annual budget; (2) the extent to which BoP's methods for estimating costs follow established best practices; and (3) the extent to which BoP's costs for key operations exceeded requested funding levels identified in the President's budget in recent years, and how this has affected BoP's ability to manage its growing inmate population.
