"The Federal Bureau of Prisons has statutory authority to contract with the private sector for secure facilities. This memorandum responds to your request for our opinion whether the Federal Bureau of Prisons ('BOP') has statutory authority to contract with the private sector for secure facilities. The General Accounting Office ('GAO') has concluded that BOP lacks such authority; BOP has taken the opposite view. For the reasons explained below, we conclude that BOP has statutory authority to contract with the private sector for secure facilities."
