Corrections Budget- How state funding is determined and spent
Wendy Monfils, Director of the Office of Management & Budget - WI DOC-DAI
Steve Krallis, Director of the Bureau of Budget & Facilities Management, WI DOC-DMS
Charlie Brown, Director & CFO of the Bureau of Business Services, WI DOA-DET
The cost of public safety increases year after year and although public safety and facilities are often discussed, the financial side of corrections is not understood. This discussion is focused on talking about how the budget is developed by the State of Wisconsin and how it concerns DAI institution funding, PIOC funding, and building and maintenance funding. For those who are not involved in finance or facilities this will be a great session to understand the rules and regulations which drive how funds are spent and received. We will also speak about the PIOC accounts and how court order obligations affect their accounts and the statutes that drive these deductions. As discussions occur with staff, there are many that are unaware of these processes, statues, and policies and we look forward to the discussion with you to show you another side of corrections and be able to share the information with your peers.
Becoming an Authentic Ally
Tracie Ruether, Staff Development Program Specialist-Senior, WI DOC
Gregory Hyland, Staff Development Program Specialist-Senior, WI DOC
Do you have a solid understanding of issues surrounding Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and want to do something with it? Do you feel more needs to be done to dismantle systems of inequality? We will discuss the idea that no matter what groups we may belong to or have been born into, we each have certain benefits in this society that make it harder (if not impossible) for groups without those benefits to get equal access and justice. We will focus on defining, discussing and creating a plan surrounding authentic allyship--actively working to help dismantle inequalities alongside those that face unjust systems preventing them from ever having the safety and opportunities you may have.
