Skyward bid protest rejected by state

The state Department of Public Instruction has rejected a protest filed by a Wisconsin company that lost out on a contract to run a student information system in the state's schools.

Skyward Inc., of Stevens Point, filed the protest in February arguing that the process awarding the bid to Minnesota's Infinite Campus was unfair.

But the DPI said Thursday in a letter obtained by The Associated Press on Thursday that it had completed its review and determined the bid was properly awarded. Former state Supreme Court Justice Janine Geske also reviewed the process and found no problems.

The contract could be worth as much as $80 million over the next decade. Skyward had asked that either it be awarded the contract or that all bids be thrown out.
