Online Audit System

Please be aware that the PREA Online Audit System (OAS) will be unavailable starting Friday, February 16, 2018 at 6pm due to necessary maintenance of the system.

We anticipate that the OAS will be back online by Monday, February 19, 2018 at 6pm, although it is possible that it will take longer than anticipated.  As soon as the OAS has been restored, active users of the OAS will receive an email notification that it is available.

Please plan your audits accordingly.  We apologize for the inconvenience. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the PRC's OAS technical support email ( or call the toll-free number (1-800-279-2216).

The PRC, in collaboration with Abt Associates, developed the PREA Online Audit System (OAS). This website provides an online interface for Department of Justice-certified PREA auditors and confinement facilities staff in the United States to complete audits on compliance with the Department of Justice’s National PREA standards. Watch the short video below for an introduction to the system.

Auditors should note that the video also is part of a required course that is accessible on the Auditor Continuing Education and Resource Portal.
