If your facility or agency is seeking a DOJ-certified PREA auditor to conduct an audit, you may browse the list below to find an auditor to contact.

Please note, the PRC will only distribute material related to requests for bids to conduct audits. We will not contact all auditors or groups of auditors for any other reason.

Decertified auditors include any individual who was formerly certified by the Department of Justice as a PREA auditor. Reasons for no longer holding this certification include, but are not limited to, voluntary decertification, failure to meet recertification requirements when the 3-year certification expires, and decertification for cause.
