Conducting Audits in the OAS: A Demonstration of the OAS from the Agency- and Facility-Based User’s Perspective
This webinar will demonstrate the OAS from the perspective of the PREA Coordinator and PREA Compliance Manager, including how to respond to Standards-based questions in the PAQ, how to upload evidence and submit the PAQ, and tips and tricks on how to maximize efficacy and efficiency in the OAS.
During this 90 minute webinar, presenters discussed the recent FAQ guidance provided by DOJ’s PREA Working Group regarding the meaning of “objective screening instrument” and provided guidance to agencies and facilities in determining whether their PREA Risk Screening Instruments are compliant with Standard 115.41/241/341. The webinar covered the differences between the adult and juvenile versions of the Standards.
Conducting and Reporting Audits in the OAS: A Demonstration of the OAS from the Auditor's Perspective
This webinar demonstrates the OAS from the auditor’s perspective, including how to review responses and documentation provided by the agency/facility and generate an issue log; make and discuss overall compliance determinations; complete your post-audit reporting information; upload supporting documentation; and submit or generate your report, as well as tips and tricks on how to maximize efficacy and efficiency in the OAS.
During this webinar, we covered PREA Standard 115.22: Policies to ensure referrals of allegations for investigations. We encourage you to invite your colleagues to view the discussion and use it as an opportunity for ongoing education.
This month's presenter was Marion Morgan, PRC Associate Director, who is responsible for training and certification of Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) auditors, staffing the PRC hotline for certified PREA auditors, and responding to questions from the field related to interpretation and implementation of the PREA standards. Ms. Morgan is also the Program Manager for the certified PREA auditor Field Training Program (FTP). Marion’s background spans many facets in the corrections field: Former PREA director for the State of Wisconsin Department of Corrections (WI DOC) from April 2011 until January 2014 and she also served for 30 years as a police officer and detective with the Madison Police Department investigating intimate partner crimes including stalking, strangulation, all forms of sexual assault/domestic abuse crimes, and homicides.
The PRC is happy to announce the release of new resources for auditors and agencies to include four sets of Document Review Worksheets. These resources were created for the Field Training Program and recently revised for broader use by auditors and agencies/facilities. The worksheets will aid a facility in the identification and collection of the proof documentation an auditor needs to audit the standards and will assist an auditor in the review of that proof documentation.
On 10/28/2021, the PRC hosted a live 90-minute webinar to introduce and share these resources with auditors and agencies/facilities. During the webinar, speakers showcased the worksheets with explanations of how both auditors and facility staff can utilize the resources to aid in their audit preparation.
