Common Terminology

PREA Compliance Manager

Per the PREA standards, where an agency operates more than one facility, each facility shall designate a PREA compliance manager with sufficient time and authority to coordinate the facility’s efforts to comply with the PREA standards.

Note: The same person cannot be listed as the PREA Coordinator and the PREA Compliance Manager as these are two distinct roles.

PREA Coordinator

Per the PREA standards, an agency shall employ or designate an upper-level, agency-wide PREA coordinator with sufficient time and authority to develop, implement, and oversee agency efforts to comply with the PREA standards in all its facilities.

Note: The same person cannot be listed as the PREA Coordinator and the PREA Compliance Manager as these are two distinct roles.

Requestor

The requestor is the person who completes the Audit Initiation Form.  This can be an agency- or facility-based administrative staff person or the auditor who will be conducting the audit. The requestor does not need to be someone who will have access to the OAS.

Supervisor

The Audit Initiation Form requires the supervisor(s) name(s) for the PREA Coordinator and/or the PREA Compliance Manager.  Supervisors should be the direct supervisor of the user requesting access.  Unless the supervisor is one of the defined user access category (e.g. the PREA Coordinator is the PREA Compliance Manager’s direct supervisor), supervisors will not receive access to the OAS.  

Note: Audit initiation will not begin, and access to the OAS will not be provided, until the verification process has been completed for all users requesting access.
