PromiseShip Sues State After Losing Contract

   Lincoln (AP) – A firm that has managed child welfare cases in the Omaha area for years will sue Nebraska state officials who awarded a new contract to a different nonprofit. 

   PromiseShip announced plans Monday to file the lawsuit after the officials with the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services said they intended to grant a new five-year contract to Kansas-based St. Francis Ministries. 

   St. Francis Ministries offered to handle child welfare cases in Douglas and Sarpy counties for $197 million, far less than the $341 million bid from PromiseShip. 

   PromiseShip has argued that St. Francis Ministries’ proposal should have been disqualified for failing to meet the terms of the state’s request for proposals. PromiseShip alleges the bid would have been far larger if the terms had been met.
