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

[[Page 49771]]

dividing 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 Sec.  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).
