Q.

May a governor submit an Assurance even if the state will not be conducting any PREA audits?

A.

During the initial three year audit cycle, which ends on August 19, 2016, a governor may submit an Assurance without conducting any PREA audits.  If necessary, additional guidance will be provided on whether the Department of Justice will continue to accept Assurances in the absence of PREA audits beyond the initial three year audit cycle.
