Utah Correctional Industries (UCI) provides high-quality products designed and manufactured with you in mind.
UCI is the State of Utah's prison industries program. We offer numerous products and services at a cost savings to state agencies, local governments, and institutions of higher education. These products and services are the result of inmate labor and training in actual work circumstances. Under the direction of the Utah Department of Corrections UCI operates productive enterprises to benefit tax-supported entities that include all state agencies and political subdivisions.
The program is completely self-supported, and derives its revenues solely from the sales of its products and services. Not only do customers receive quality products when purchasing from UCI, customers are also supporting a cost-saving legislative program. Estimates indicate it would cost the Department of Corrections, thus the taxpayers, between $2.5 million and $3 million per year to provide general departmental supervision and programming for inmate workers. Additionally, inmates participating in the UCI program acquire valuable vocational skills under working conditions that prevail in private industry, preparing them for legitimate employment once they are released from prison.
UCI can furnish offices, conference rooms, waiting rooms, libraries or other work areas with quality industry seating and furnishing products. Labor-intensive services such as general construction, roofing, asbestos abatement and pavement crack sealing are offered as well. At UCI, you can also purchase clothing, mattresses, interior and exterior signage and a wide variety of printing services.
UCI's mission is to train inmates in real-time work environments to produce useful products and services to our customers, and at the same time gain the tools to return to a productive life in society. This reduces idleness and hopelessness in the prison environment for the working inmate while decreasing management issues and increasing the level of security for prison staff.
UCI operates work programs similar to traditional correctional industries found nationally and is in a federally controlled relationship with Private Industries Enhancement (PIE), which are owned by qualified private companies.
UCI is confident it is among the best prison industry programs in the nation and complies with state regulations by being completely self-supported. We accomplish this by providing products and services that match or exceed industry standards while keeping prices lower than industry standards.
Go ahead, give UCI a try. Clients are often amazed that our products are produced by inmate labor because the quality of our work cannot be differentiated from that found in commercial and retail business.

UCI was created by the Utah Legislature to provide value and cost savings to state agencies. This value has been extended to other government agencies, including counties, cities, school districts, special service districts and qualifying nonprofit organizations.
State use law 63-56-423 states that state agencies shall consider UCI-produced products for their purchases without being subject to the bid process. UCI also is on the state contract, so other government agencies and nonprofit organizations may purchase our products based on their value and quality along with others on the state contract.
