Comprised of corrections professionals, the ACA is an independent organization that establishes accreditation standards for correctional and detention facilities globally. Outside agency standards, such as those established by the ACA, provide CoreCivic with the industry's most widely accepted operational guidelines. ACA-accredited facilities must be audited and re-accredited every three years. Through adherence to clear standards, an ACA accreditation is intended to improve facility operations, including safety, security, order, inmate care, programs, justice, and administration.

ACA accreditation is a rigorous process involving a 72-hour on-site audit of a facility and its operations. Independent ACA representatives, reviewing hundreds of standards, inspect various aspects of facility management and activities including safety and security, employee training, administration, rehabilitation programs and healthcare.

CoreCivic makes public its average ACA scores in the company's annual 10-K filing. CoreCivic has sought and received ACA accreditation for 37 (approximately 95 percent) of the eligible CoreCivic-operated facilities as of Dec. 31, 2021.
