The report seems to leave out three important pieces of information that are now known to the public. (If you find this information in the report, please let us know!)
1) Montgomery County and MCPS have a no-bid, exclusive deal with just one artificial turf supplier: FieldTurf Tarkett.
2) FieldTurf Tarkett is now suing their supplier for providing them with defective materials.
3) MCPS must buy 3 fields within 3 years from FieldTurf in order secure the price paid for the first two fields.
Wonder how this report would change if artificial turf field procurements in Montgomery County were put out for COMPETITIVE BIDS?
