Tools for Procuring New Technology

The June/July 2017 issue of School Nutrition magazine covers a breadth of solutions for moving your school meals operation into the future and preparing for the next generation. Among these topics is the “It’s Your Business” article, written by Barry Sackin, a K-12 school nutrition consultant, author and speaker. His piece, “Big D(ata) in the Big D(allas)” advises small districts not to be intimidated by the choices of larger ones—and, in fact, to be inspired by them. Sackin’s example of choice is Dallas Independent School District (ISD), which utilized multiple nuanced tools while implementing their new tech and procuring their new technical vendor, Heartland School Solutions, a client of Sackin’s. In this bonus web content, SN has provided examples of those tools, including Dallas’s Request for Proposal (RFP), timelines, training agenda and more!
