“Robust competition is essential among the firms seeking to manage the City's public parking garages. Since we announced the Intent to Award the contract to a Central Parking in May, questions have been raised challenging the fairness or perception of fairness of the selection process.

“I agree with enough of the concerns raised to ask the City's Procurement Services and the Bureau of Transportation to rebid the contract.

“A new schedule for request for proposals will be forthcoming soon. Proposals will be evaluated by a newly comprised evaluation committee.

“Outstanding, cost-effective management of the City's parking garages is critical to the economic vitality and accessibility of downtown Portland. It's worth taking the time to make sure we get it right.”
