All options still open in food service restructuring (1)

We need to re-establish the food service bid process equilibrium that may have been taken out of balance by the headline in the front-page Tech story regarding food services ["ARA not invited back," Nov. 30].

MIT is going to rebid the current food service contract on a profit and loss based contract. MIT will seek contract bidders -- including ARA -- for the new proposal. MIT will choose the best possible food service contract offered by bidders under the new proposal.

This could very well be ARA if ARA decides to bid and produces the food contract that is in MIT's best interest. It is important that your readers understand these facts regarding MIT's rebidding of the food service contract.

The Nov. 30 headline can be misread and misleading and thus not in the best interest of the ongoing food service contract bid process. I appreciate your detailing these facts for your readers.
