Selection Process

Eighteen firms responded to LPSCC’s request for proposal, which was originally released on March 13, 2020. By the time the selection committee identified three finalists, the COVID-19 pandemic and the movement for racial justice after the murder of George Floyd had significantly impacted adjudication, incarceration and other criminal legal system functions. Anticipating that this work would take place in an altered criminal legal landscape, the selection committee requested further information from the finalists. Territory received the highest score.
