In accordance with Standards 115.12, 115.112, 115.212, and 115.312, what level of contracting monitoring is actually required by the contracting agency?
In years when the contract facility is audited, review of the audit report will meet the monitoring requirements. In other years, monitoring may be done in the same manner the agency verifies compliance with other contract terms, which may vary (e.g. on-site agency staff, inspections, documentation, etc.). Whatever monitoring method used should provide the agency assurances that the contractor is complying with the PREA standards.
