The U.S. Department of Justice, Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) announces the availability of the Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) concerning the Criminal Alien Requirement VIII (CAR VIII). The BOP is seeking flexibility in managing its current shortage of beds by contracting for those services with non-federal facilities to house federal inmates. This approach provides the BOP with flexibility to meet population capacity needs in a timely fashion, conform with federal law, and maintain fiscal responsibility, while successfully attaining the mission of the BOP. The BOP proposed to contract with a public and private corporation to house up to 3000 federal, low-security, adult male inmates, that are primarily non-U.S. citizen, criminal aliens in existing Contractor-Owned/Contractor- Operated facilities. The award would be granted to a responsible offeror whose offer is found to be most advantageous to the Government. One existing facility has been offered in response to the BOP's solicitation for services. The one response provided a total of 2,567 beds. Environmental impacts of the facility were evaluated in a Environmental Assessment (EA). The EA evaluated the full effects of the available 2,567 inmate beds. Environmental impacts of this facility have been evaluated in an EA provided by the Offeror.
