Kesco Responds to District's Debarment Letter
The Escambia County School District's purchasing department received this response on Wednesday from Kesco in response to the debarment notice of Dec. 4th.
From the Kesco Response:
"Please accept this letter as confirmation of receipt of your letter, dated December 4, 2013. We would like to present our debarment appeal to the members of the Escambia County School Board. Therefore, the relief requested is a complete reversal and reinstatement. We feel that clarification of the facts are necessary. After our presentation and in this request for relief, we will vindicate and clear the allegations described in your letter"
At some point after the first of the year, the School Board will hear from Kesco and from the District-- and then vote to determine whether or not to debar Kesco. The date for that meeting has not been set.
