Baltimore Security wins $586K contract for ESHS campuses
Baltimore Security Services has been awarded a contract valued more than half a million dollars for security services to the two campuses of the Elmore Stoutt High School (ESHS).
This was disclosed through a recent post-Cabinet statement which said the government reviewed an evaluation report submitted by the Central Tender Board’s (CTB) technical committee before coming to a decision on the $586,645 contract.
The CTB approved the award for the security company — owned and operated by Leston Baltimore, Sr. and Mary Baltimore — on November 8, 2021, the statement said.
Although the statement noted that the contract was awarded for a 52-week period, it did not state when the contract started or was expected to come to an end.
This is a notable deviation from the recent past where it was revealed that Cabinet retroactively awarded other security contracts to at least one other local firm. These include a six-month security contract for the same high school.
That security contract was valued at $327,360 but did not go through the tender process as was done with Baltimore Security Services in this instance.
