Department Director Jose Abreu insists that is not true. He forwarded me a December 8, 2008 email he sent to Miami-Dade Inspector General Chris Mazzella. In the note, Abreu promises the aviation department will solicit bids for a new contract... in 2010.
Abreu wrote, "We also agree with your assessment of the timelines and processes generally
associated with Airport procurement services... We anticipate the RFP to be advertised early in the next calendar year."
