Thinkpoint, An audit of the state has revealed many problems with a contract from the Department of Correctional Services Kentucky with a private company that provides meals to state prisons.

An investigation of a riot, 2009 at Northpoint Training Center near Danville determined food was not the main factor, but it was a contributing factor to the riot. At the request of the legislature, the State Auditor Crit Luallen checked the 12 million contracts and the Department of Corrections has with food service provider ARAMARK, and says that problems were found.

“There were some errors in billing that we believe point to the need for much greater control and awareness on the part of the prison administration of the importance of keeping track of all the details of a contract which is of this size. ”

The audit offers 30 recommendations to strengthen market supervision; many of the prison have already passed. The audit did not recommend termination of the contract with Aramark.
