Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD)

The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) is the second largest school district in the United States, maintaining an estimated $10 billion operating budget, with nearly 100,000 employees across 8 local school districts serving nearly 700,000 students in approximately 700 schools. 

LAUSD embarked on a series of process mapping exercises, interviews, assessments, and evaluations regarding its substitute management systems, process, policies, and procedures. The thorough review of how all substitutes are identified, deployed, and managed resulted in realizations that the current systems are not robust enough for the environment.  LAUSD engaged us to complete a full marketplace assessment and vendor selection for a complete Substitute Management System. 

Our approach was designed around cross-functional facilitated vendor selection.  We:

  • Determined the appropriate vendor solution group

  • Created the requirements and RFP for vendor distribution

  • Evaluated responses

  • Facilitated vendor response scoring and generated the vendor short-list

  • Facilitated vendor product demonstrations

  • Finalized recommendation to Senior Management
