need advice on bidding school grounds

1421 Views 8 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  mower_babe
The local school in my area currently has two of there maintenance men doing the grounds on 3 campuses and the administrative building. In the fall of 2004 there will be another campus to do as well. The grounds ALWAYS look bad and are overgrown. I would like to pitch to the administrative board that it would be better to contract out than to have staff do it!

Does anyone have any advice on putting together a marketing package to sell this idea?

Not only that, but since it's union, there are certain issues as well. For instance, someone else comes in and does some work, grievances are filed. I do quite a bit of work for a local school system, but it is all in agreement with what the maintenance guys DON'T want to or can't do. I DO know of someone local who does the mowing for an entire school system, but that was a long planned outsource.
