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 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.
Under Sec.  505.2, the Director of the Bureau of Prisons determined
that, based upon fiscal year 2014 data, the fee to cover the average
cost of incarceration for Federal inmates in Fiscal Year 2014 was
\$30,619.85 (\$83.89 per day). (Please note: There were 365 days in FY
2014.) The average annual cost to confine an inmate in a Residential
Re-entry Center for Fiscal Year 2014 was \$28,999.25 (\$79.45 per day).
