State Criminal Alien Assistance Program Corrections submitted ineligible inmate data in its fiscal year 2009 State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP) application.

Corrections sought clarification from the United States Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance. In addition, Corrections provided inmate data from the previous fiscal year's SCAAP application period of 2008-2009 to determine whether it received duplicate funding for multiple records submitted. USDOJ-BJA informed Corrections that no duplicate payments were made. 91
