Managed Competition Process For Miramar Landfill Now Complete. City Employees To Continue Running Landfill

It's been a messy process but after more than a year of searching for ways to save money at the Miramar Landfill the Managed Competition process has finally ended.

Tomorrow, the Managed Competition Independent Review Board is expected to pass on a recommendation to the Mayor to keep the program in house by awarding the contract to city employees.

The announcement comes more than one year after Mayor Sanders announced his intentions to sell the Miramar Landfill. In the months following, several companies were rumored to be interested in buying the landfill including Texas Disposal, Allied Waste Services, and Waste Management.

Those discussions fell to the way side after the City was unable to get the Navy, the land-owner, to sign off on the transfer of the landfill to a private company. Without the go-ahead from the Navy, with concerns over environmental liability, the private companies backed out.

On February 28, the City posted a "request for proposal" on it's website, this time to take over operations at the landfill through the managed competition program.

On July 10, members of the Managed Competition Independent Review Board were informed that City employees had submitted the only legitimate proposal -- according to the Managed Competition Guide, in order to be considered outside vendors must submit proposals which are more than 10 percent less than the proposal from the employees.

"The [Technical Evaluation Committee] found the [Employee Proposal Team] to be knowledgeable, comprehensive in approach, committee to achieving efficiencies and saving, interested in thinking "outside the box" and prepared to meet or exceed performance requirements," read the report from the evaluation committee.

The independent review board will meet Thursday, July 19 at 3:30 pm on the second floor of City Hall.

Great news for City Employees!

I'm glad the "powers to be" did not sell these landfill jobs to their highest donors!

NOW, The City of San Diego should consider "out sourcing" the Mayor and all City Council Jobs, that would put a stop to these practices in an instant...

I'm sure we could cut the the Mayor and all City Council salaries by 50% and their pensions by 75% and still get a huge number of qualified candidates...

Most unusual. I'd have thought one or more of these mobbed up trash haulers, well known around the US, would have jumped through all the hoops to land the deal. If there was any part of SD city operations ripe for outsourcing, it was the trash collection and the dump. So much for one of the three legs of Sanders' attempt to save money for the city taxpayers. It will be business as usual, or worst than usual.
