Secure No More?

Turns out Miami International Airport bureaucrats aren't so lazy, just a bit slow at fostering competition. Earlier today, I wrote about the Miami-Dade Aviation Department's reluctance to competitively bid the baggage-wrapping concession operated by Secure Wrap of Miami, which has held on to the lucrative business for more than eight years.

Department Director Jose Abreu insists that is not true. He forwarded me a December 8, 2008 email he sent to Miami-Dade Inspector General Chris Mazzella. In the note, Abreu promises the aviation department will solicit bids for a new contract... in 2010.

Abreu wrote, "We also agree with your assessment of the timelines and processes generally associated with Airport procurement services... We anticipate the RFP to be advertised early in the next calendar year."
