Wis. company to challenge $15M contract awarded to Minn. firm

A Stevens Point, Wis., company is appealing a Wisconsin Department of Administration decision to give an educational services contract to a firm based in Blaine, Minn.

The Stevens Point Journal reports the department awarded the $15 million dollar contract to Infinite Campus Inc. to be the sole provider of student information systems to Wisconsin’s more than 440 school districts and nondistrict charter schools.

One of the six losing bidders, Skyward Inc., claims the evaluation process was flawed and late changes to the process put the company at a disadvantage.

“Throughout this process, all we wanted was a fair and impartial evaluation that was in the best interest of Wisconsin school districts,” Cliff King, CEO of Skyward, said in news release.  “Based on what we know today, it is only prudent on behalf of our customers, employees and the taxpayers of Wisconsin that we contest this decision.”

Skyward is the current provider for 50 percent of Wisconsin school districts.
