pass-through contract
 n.— «Because the federal government does not deal directly with private detention businesses, Nueces County is in the process of negotiating a new federal prisoner housing rate for its own jail as well as a rate for prisoners housed under what is known as a “pass-through” contract.…Under the “pass through” agreement, Kaelin will serve as the ultimate oversight for any federal prisoner at the private facility.» —“LCS Detention Center to be boon to economy” by Jaime Powell Caller-Times (Corpus Christi, Texas) June 9, 2008.
