CHICAGO - Mayor Richard M. Daley announced the City of Chicago is planning to issue requests for proposal to privatize the management and execution of some city services, including fleet management, according to a release from the mayor's office.
"The Department of Fleet Management will seek to find outside vendors who might provide maintenance and repair of fleet vehicles and equipment," according to the release.
Initiatives are aimed at further controlling the costs and transforming government structure.
If the RFPs come back with bids that are too high, the City will not move forward, Daley said.
Other city programs set to issue RFPs are Department of Streets and Sanitation, Office of Special Events, Department of Human Resources, Animal Care and Control, General Services Department, and Department of Revenue.
