The State of Alabama is expected to invest more than $1Billion in the modernization of its prison infrastructure over the next three years. Minority businesses, including ethnic minority businesses, are encouraged to pre-qualify to be added to the vendor lists for these projects. 

The Alabama Legislature authorized the construction of two new men’s correctional facilities in Elmore and Escambia Counties as replacement infrastructure.

This initiative will allow the Alabama Department of Corrections to provide safer, more secure correctional environments that better accommodate inmate rehabilitation, enhance medical and mental health services, and improve the quality of life for those who live and work in them.

The State of Alabama is committed to a plan that achieves to the greatest extent possible a level of participation by minority businesses, with a focus on ethnic minority businesses.
