THE PORTOLAN GROUP PROVIDES ASSISTANCE TO THREE SCHOOL DISTRICTS IN THE FLORIDA PANHANDLE

Three school districts in the Florida panhandle hired The Portolan Group to provide support in the RFP management process of their food service operations for SY 07. Washington, Calhoun and Liberty County School Districts needed to outsource their food service program and wanted to ensure they were getting a fair contract. The Portolan Group supported all three districts in the RFP process including amending the state-approved RFP, guiding the RFP process for the districts, reviewing the proposals with the district’s evaluation teams and negotiating a fair contract. PGI is now assisting them with the on-going monitoring of the contracts.

PGI's Executive Vice-President, Terry Burgess said, "We are thrilled to be assisting these districts. The panhandle region of Florida has seen budget problems affect their operations departments. These districts are looking for unique ways to solve these problems. With the district’s choice of a modified outsourcing solution, The Portolan Group is very pleased to help ensure they get the best contract and service possible."
