AVOID THE HASSLE AND SAVE MONEY
RESPECT is exempt from the competitive procurement process. By contracting with RESPECT you can skip the lengthy process of preparing, advertising, reviewing and awarding competitive procurements while avoiding possible protests. This saves valuable staff time and saves other costs associated with the procurement process.
YOU NAME IT
For over 40 years, RESPECT of Florida has partnered with its Certified Employment Centers throughout the state to employ Floridians with disabilities. Some of the services provided are national stand-outs, like their celebrated maintenance of Florida’s Rest Areas and Welcome Centers on interstates. Other services are treasured local resources—like employment opportunities for parking meter collectors in West Palm Beach or sign maintenance crews in Calhoun County. In addition to janitorial services and grounds maintenance, Floridians with disabilities also provide other services such as call center operations, and fleet cleaning. All of these services fill a governmental entity’s unique need for a service while also allowing local residents with disabilities to work for and give back to their community.
Customized services are a specialty and projects can be multi-year or annual contracts, or they can also be tailored to meet seasonal schedules or even one-time events.
