The Honorable, The Legislature:
This is the annual report on Prison Industries for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1998, as required by Wisconsin Statutes 303.18. This report includes the cash balance of each industry and the amount of wood furniture and printing state agencies purchased from Prison Industries.
The cash deficit for traditional prison industries (appropriation 134) has been eliminated. The Department showed a cash profit of $700,687 during FY 98; a change of the accumulated balance from ($236,629) in FY 97 to $464,058 on June 30, 1998.
The cash deficit for private venture partnership industries (appropriation 189) increased by $290,747 (from ($989,310) in FY 97 to ($1,280,057) in FY 98). The unsupported portion of the negative balance is $878,877.
See Appendix A for a summary of the cash balance for each industry and the overall financial condition of Prison Industries.
State agencies purchased $36,898,424 in printing from all sources in FY 98. Of that amount $1,125,177 or 3% was purchased from Prison Industries. State printing bulletins now require that all forms for which Prison Industries has negotiated a contract be purchased from Prison Industries.
The total amount of purchases made by state agencies for wood furniture is no longer available. Due to an accounting policy change, agencies are only required to identify a purchase for wood furniture by a specific object code if it exceeds $5,000. State agencies reported purchases of $236,236 for wood furniture in FY 97. Prison Industries reported the sale of $905,875 of wood furniture to state agencies. Purchases of less than $5,000 are included in the amount reported by Prison Industries.
Appendix B provides comparisons with FY 97 for printing and wood furniture.
Sincerely,
Jon E. Litscher
Secretary, Department of Corrections
