Ohio will pay corrections consultants $50,000 for their review of security following a prison escape earlier this month.
The prisons agency contract with the Association of State Correctional Administrators will examine all aspects of a protective control unit where the three inmates were housed.
The contract for $49,978 released Tuesday through an open records request includes a review of supervision levels and inmate movement.
The contract also calls for recommendations for improvements to housing arrangements on the unit and other operations.
The contract follows three inmates' Sept. 11 escape from Allen Oakwood Correctional Institution in Lima.
The three, including convicted school shooter T.J. Lane, were housed on a unit for inmates considered at risk of harm from other prisoners.
