Administrative Remedy Program-stand up for your rights!
The Administrative Remedy Program is a Bureau of Prisons program by which inmates in a federal prison can seek formal review of an issue which relates to any aspect of their confinement, if less formal procedures have not resolved the matter. In other words, if they feel they have been treated unfairly, discriminated against, denied a program, or been adversely affected by a BOP decision; they can file an Administrative Remedy Appeal. This Program applies to any inmate confined in a federal prison operated by the Bureau of Prisons or to inmates designated to contracted Community Corrections Centers (Halfway Houses or CCCs) under Bureau of Prisons responsibility. It also applies to former inmates for issues that arose during their confinement. It does not apply to inmates confined in other non-federal facilities.
Jail Time Consulting explains, informs, educates, and prepares all levels of Administrative Remedy Appeals for our clients. We prepare the initial Informal Resolution appeal, (BP-8½), the Administrative Appeals to the Warden, (BP-9), the Regional Office Appeals, (BP-10), and the Central Office Appeals, (BP-11). The Administrative Remedy Program allows the inmate to seek formal review of an issue relating to any aspect of his/her federal prison confinement. Whether it is an appeal against an incident report or “shot” or the appeal of a denied furlough, denial of a transfer, denial of RDAP program eligibility, denial of Second Chance Act Program eligibility, or denial of RDAP sentence reduction incentives, and many other injustices by the BOP; the inmate has a legal right to appeal the decision through the Administrative Remedy Program. Jail Time Consulting has firsthand knowledge, expertise, and experience in preparing Administrative Remedy Requests for all federal prison inmates. We also have access to all research tools including the Internet, PACER, legal case information, current laws, and BOP policies and procedures that should be followed. These are the items are not available to inmates.
We provide for our clients the total submission packages with the initial BP forms, continuation sheets, exhibits, and all supporting documentation with detailed instructions to the inmate for proper submission. An inmate may not use this Program to submit a Request or Appeal on behalf of another inmate. This program is intended to address concerns that are personal to the inmate making the Request or Appeal, but shall not prevent an inmate from obtaining assistance in preparing a Request or Appeal. Jail Time Consulting is an expert at preparing Administrative Remedy Requests and we provide this assistance.
The Administrative Remedy Program is a four step process. The steps must be taken in the correct order. If they are not taken in the correct order or you leave out a piece of information, the BOP will deny it. They provide many roadblocks for a successful appeal. We know the roadblocks, the time frames, and the proper submission process with the correct number of copies, continuation sheets, and exhibits. If your Appeal is resolved in your favor, the process is stopped. If the Appeal is not resolved in your favor, you may proceed to the next step. The first step is called Informal Resolution and a BP-8 ½ form is completed with all the accompanying documentation and turned into the Corrections Counselor in your federal prison. The second step, if needed, is called the Request for Administrative Remedy and a BP-9 form is completed with all the accompanying documentation and is submitted to the Warden of your federal prison. The third step, if needed, is called the Regional Administrative Remedy Appeal and a BP-10 form is completed with all the accompanying documentation and is submitted to the Regional Director. The fourth and final step, if needed, is called the Central Office Administrative Remedy Appeal and a BP-11 form is completed with all the accompanying documentation and is submitted to the BOP Central Office in Washington, DC.
Jail Time Consulting explains, informs, educates, and prepares for our clients formal Administrative Remedy Program submissions. Inmates have a legal right to appeal an unfair or improper decision through the Administrative Remedy Program. The problem that exists is that inmates do not have the necessary research tools needed in federal prison to file a complete and thorough Administrative Remedy package. They do not have access to the Internet, recent court cases, and the supporting documentation that is required for a successful submission. That is why most inmate submitted Administrative Remedy Appeals are denied. The BOP may deny an appeal for a minor administrative error which has nothing to do with the facts in the case. Jail Time Consulting has firsthand knowledge, expertise, and experience in preparing Administrative Remedy Requests for all federal prison inmates at all levels. We are competent, skilled, proficient, and professional in our appeal submissions. In addition, we are highly successful.
