For Immediate Release
Eric Johnson, Maryland Stadium Authority
The Maryland Stadium Authority has selected Partners for Revitalization of Baltimore City Schools, a joint venture of McKissack & McKissack and Brailsford & Dunlavey, to perform program management services for the Baltimore City Public Schools Construction and Revitalization program. This includes administrative, technical and programmatic support to the Maryland Stadium Authority and Baltimore City Public Schools to carry out the school program.
The contract for $ 6,257,816.30 was awarded following a procurement process which produced five qualified candidates. The selection panel, consisting of representatives from Baltimore City Schools and the Maryland Stadium Authority, unanimously recommended Partners for Revitalization of Baltimore City Schools as they were both the low bidder and highest technically-ranked candidate.
Partners for Revitalization of Baltimore City Schools meet the 29% minority business enterprise goal established in the RFP, and exceed MBE sub-goals.
McKissack & McKissack is a woman/minority-owned organization specializing in architecture and interiors, program and construction management, planning and facilities management, environmental engineering and transportation. They have offices around the country.
Brailsford & Dunlavey is a minority-owned business with a nationwide portfolio of large public projects and significant experience in large K-12 educational improvement programs.
The two firms are currently engaged in a joint venture to revitalize public schools in Washington, D.C.
"This announcement is a great example of how government agencies can work collaboratively to benefit and grow our business community," said Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake. "We recognize the vital importance the M/WBE business community has on the growth of our city. To that end, the Mayor's Office of Minority and Women-Owned Business Development and the Mayor's Office of Employment Development are leading efforts to ensure our local workforce and minority/women suppliers are a focus on this important project."
