The most recent audits of the Kingman prison in Arizona, the one operated by MTC that 3 murderers escaped from, found no significant issues with staffing or security that would have affected the escape. They scored a 99.5% on the audit from this year, in fact. One of the few problems it did find was that the prison didn't stock enough gas guns to quell a riot. But these audits clearly weren't sufficient to detect a faulty alarm system (alarm systems aren't an integral part of security?) or the poor operational practices that led to the prison being understaffed. I guess that all would fit within the 0.5% they missed.
