Administrative Service Centers

Administrative Service Centers were established in June, 1999, to consolidate all administrative support functions for institutional and community corrections field operations. The seven Service Centers provide further extension and local delivery of administrative services that are coordinated by individual Central Office Bureaus. The Service Centers will replace the business and personnel functions at the former five regional offices and 60 major institutions. This approach enables standardization for the department's business and personnel functions within the prison system and community corrections. This new system of delivering support services will enable the agency to meet its mission with fewer resources and result in cost savings to the Florida taxpayer.

All administrative support functions for institutional and probation and parole operations, including accounting, purchasing, personnel, maintenance, technology services, staff development, food services, and warehousing are reassigned to the seven geographically dispersed Service Centers. Benefits of this new alignment include the following:

  • Consolidation of workload will increase cost efficiency by reducing overall administrative staff by approximately 280, Full Time Employees (FTE), an annual savings of $10 million.
  • Centralization of administrative authority will promote greater consistency, standardization, and accountability; resulting in more cost-effective operations.
  • Line staff are relieved of burdensome administrative workload and authorizations, allowing them to concentrate on their mission-critical responsibilities.
