Recommendation to respectfully request City Manager and staff to analyze the City's current RFP process, review RFP processes used by other entities, and report back within 90 days regarding recommendations to improve the City's procurement process.

The purpose of this agenda item is to study the City's RFP process and recommend improvements that would increase the overall value of our service contracts.
