JUNEAU- The state plans to rebid janitorial contracts for three office buildings after the winner bidder dropped out.
JJG Cleaning Services bid on 10 contracts for cleaning services and won eight of them. But Department of Administration spokesman Andy Mills says the company terminated three of the contracts "due to workload and staffing issues."
REACH Custodial Services held the contracts for 20 years under the state's "employment program and disability preference. That allowed the contract to be exempted from the procurement process. The preference allows the state to give extra consideration to businesses owned by or employing people with disabilities.
Mills says the competitive bidding process needed to be reinstated as the administration focuses on cost savings.
REACH's executive director says the organization plans to rebid.
