MDOC REVIEWING ALL CONTRACTS
Jackson - Gov. Phil Bryant has directed the Mississippi Department of Corrections to review all contracts, including those listed in an indictment against former Commissioner Christopher B. Epps.
Additionally, the awarding of new contracts for four private prisons has been suspended, and Management & Training Corporation, or MTC, will continue operating Marshall County Correctional Facility, East Mississippi Correctional Facility, Walnut Grove Correctional Facility and Wilkinson County Correctional Facility. MDOC anticipates requesting new proposals for the private prisons in the near future.
As a result of an initial review, two contracts with Adminpros LLC have been canceled.
