The Florida Department of Corrections (Department) issued a new solicitation in September 2019 that includes services previously provided in the Property Package Program. The procurement process to secure a new statewide contract often is a lengthy activity and, as is our practice, will follow an established timeline. The process was further delayed by required response efforts relating to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Department anticipates awarding the solicitation and establishing a new contract by the fall of 2021. The Department will work diligently to procure services to allow friends and family the opportunity to periodically purchase a property package for incarcerated family members and friends. During this procurement process, inmates can continue to purchase property items through the quarterly order program currently offered by the canteen service provider, Trinity Services Group. Friends and family wishing to contribute toward the purchase of property items may deposit funds in their loved one’s inmate trust fund account.
Updates to this information will be posted on the Department website.
