Acacia Prison Services Agreement 2020
The ministry provides on-site monitoring services at Acacia to ensure that the contractor meets the requirements of the contract. The Ministry has also entered into a contract with Western Liberty Group for the provision of court security and custody services in the central courts and the district court building (DCB contract). The treaty stresses the need to ensure prison security while providing appropriate programs for inmates aimed at reducing relapses and creating opportunities for innovation in private and public prisons. The Department`s CS and CS contract covers services to external municipal courts, all major regional courts and custodial traffic throughout Western Australia. For more information, visit Prisoner Transportation. The CS and CS contracts were re-tendered and a contract with Broadspectrum Australia Pty Ltd was concluded on 27 October 2016. Broadspectrum acquired the service provider of Serco Australia in March 2017. The Ministry of Justice currently manages two contracts for the provision of court security and custody services (CS and CS) as described in the Court Security and Custody Act 1999. We are closely monitoring the Covid-19 (coronavirus) situation and are working with the Washington State Department of Health to ensure that all possible measures are taken to minimize the impact of the virus on Justice Department services. The incredible story of Western Australia`s Indigenous Carrolup children`s artists – triumphant and tragic at the same time – has inspired and empowered prisoners studying art at Casuarina Prison. The current contract with Serco expires in the first half of 2021. In December 2019, the Washington state government announced that the prison would remain private and that it would conduct a post-legacy process for the facility. Procurement is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2020.
In December 2020, Serco Australia Pty Ltd successfully won a replacement contract, which will start in May 2021. The contract will initially be for a five-year term with two renewal options of up to five years each. The replacement contract provides that Serco will operate and maintain Acacia Prison. G4S Custodial Services provides these services as a subcontractor of Western Liberty Group. Read the Department of Justice`s 2019-2020 Annual Report.
