Mayor Williams Defers Award of Animal Shelter Contract
Directs Office of Corporation Counsel to Review Bid Process

Statement from Mayor Williams

After many months of negotiation in furtherance of a published request for proposals in connection with the future operation of the District's animal shelter, the DC Office of Contracting and Procurement announced the tentative award of a one-year renewable agreement with the successful bidder last week. In light of the many questions that I have received on this matter subsequent to the announcement of the award, I have directed the Office of Contracting and Procurement to take the steps necessary to defer the implementation of this contract - and the interim "letter contract" awarded to the same party - pending a review by the Office of Corporation Counsel.

I want to assure that the bid process was conducted properly and that all District laws and procedures were followed. In the interim, the Department of Health will continue to operate the facility utilizing full-time and temporary staff and contractors. I share the concerns that many of our residents have for the safety and welfare of animals. I am confident that the care of the animals brought to this facility will not be compromised as the process moves forward.
