Skyward files appeal over contract denial

MADISON, Wis. -

Wisconsin-based Skyward Inc. has filed an appeal with the state over the denial of its protest over losing a multimillion dollar contract to a Minnesota company.

Skyward, of Stevens Point, said Thursday it filed the appeal because it believes the state of Wisconsin unfairly awarded the contract to run a statewide student information system to Infinite Campus of Minnesota.

Skyward's protest was rejected last week by the state Department of Public Instruction. Its appeal goes to Gov. Scott Walker's Department of Administration.
Skyward employs about 270 people statewide. It has threatened to leave Wisconsin if it loses the contract.

Multiple reviews of the bid process both by the DPI and independent observers have determined that nothing was done inappropriately. But Skyward said the bid process wasn't fair, transparent or open.
