Skyward files notice of protest over losing bid

MADISON, Wis. -

A Wisconsin-based school software provider has filed a protest with the state over its losing of a $15 million contract to a Minnesota company.

Skyward Inc. said Friday it had filed the protest with Gov. Scott Walker's administration, saying its bid was lower than the bid winner Infinite Campus of Blaine, Minn.

The contract winner will be the sole provider of student information systems to Wisconsin's more than 440 school districts and non-district charter schools.

The state said that week that Infinite Campus had the highest scoring proposal based on several criteria, including having the highest technical score and the lowest cost.

Democratic Wisconsin lawmakers have complained that Skyward's losing of the bid could result in a loss of jobs in the state.
