Abstract : This manual summarizes the ways in which Federal, State, and local governments have acquired 14 former military correctional facilities. It reviews the job- and income-generating effects of these facilities compared with equivalent effects when the bases were open. It also presents broad estimates of norms for correctional facilities work forces, payrolls, contracted services and other expenditures; and, it retraces ways in which community perspective were addressed. Specifically, it tells how communities have transformed former military installations into correctional facilities; describes the process of acquiring the property; presents former facilities that have been converted; analyzes the costs and benefits; presents the community organizations; and describes how communities reacted to correctional uses. Keywords: Military procurement; Corrections; Military facilities.
