CONTRACT NEGOTIATION AND RFP PROCESS SITUATION

Situation

A system of hospitals that had contract management services for its foodservice operation wanted to go 'out to bid' for either a change or retain its existing contract management firm.

Problem

They did not have the expertise in house to manage this process.

Solution

Developed a request for proposal, evaluated all proposals for service enhancements as well as financial benefits and made top three recommendations for the system to consider.

Benefits

The system was able to focus on the important issue of which contract firm would most reflect their mission for the patients and staff and avoid unnecessary time and expense in the process.
