    It’s actually quite clear. The airport put forward a clear procurement process in their RFQ as they should. Ranked them according to a defined ranking system that was spelled out in the RFQ and made a recommendation to the Board. The Board then went into a closed session and threw out the process and made a recommendation based on who knows what, castigated the airport management for following their defined process. Now they are facing FAA enforcement action and legal consequences.

    The Airport Comtracting and Procurement function is a mess – just like all the Agencies.

    There are no procedures followed because the end justifies the means. I wish more County Workers would speak to the chaos and mismanagement on the inside.

    “Yet a last-minute maneuver in closed session by supervisors last month gave the contract to a low-ranked, but seemingly politically connected new bidder, ACI Jet, on a 4-1 vote with Supervisor Lisa Bartlett opposed.”

    This describes a Brown Act violation. You’d think they’d know by now. And what is County Counsel getting paid for?
