Escambia School District Sends KESCO a Debarment Letter

This letter was sent to Pensacola restaurant supply company KESCO last Wednesday, December 4th, noticing them that they are precluded from doing any business with the school district for a period of two years.

They have ten days to appeal the decision directly to the board if they so choose.

This action is a follow up to the district's ominous food service audit that hit a few months back.

from the letter:

"The School District of Escambia County (the District) hereby notifies you that your firm, KESCO, is prohibited from conducting business with the District for a period of two (2) years from the date of this letter pursuant to correspondence from the School Board General Counsel dated September 21, 2012 stating “work performed by your company for the Escambia County School District should be pursuant to an appropriate purchase order…any future instances of unauthorized work will result in debarment for a period of two (2) years.  Your firm continued to deliver items without the issuance of an authorized purchase order as evidenced by an investigation"
