Kevan Worley, John Gordon: I believe you guys owe Oklahoma some serious
technical assistance.  Can Terry Smith provide them with hands on help?
Sincerely meant.  
Ms. Hutson, a word of advice.  There are no magic bullets or cookie cutter
recipes out there.  Almost every state has its own unique set of problems
and challenges.  There are plenty of good ideas out there.  You have to make
sure they will work for you.  Good luck.

I have so many questions and slowly asking them.

Apparently Illinois has figured out how to do the unassigned vending in
their state. I think we have a strong enough law to do the same. I need
guidance because I don't know where to begin!

Next we are trying to re-do our process in the selection process with our
business plans & interview questions because some of the managers do not
think the selection process is fair enough. Tim, I'll be calling you later
this week. Thanks for giving me your contact information!

I'm concerned about the cancellation of the RSVA Pepsi contract ... will
that raise the prices we are currently charged now even if we are going to
go with Amerisource?

I'm interested in learning more about the Tennessee & the program that they
were able to work out with the prisons and the software they have developed.
How much would it cost another state to come on board with this? We seem at
this point to be locked into Aramark & I feel that if we had the freedom to
choose our suppliers, it would give us an edge. I need to know that we have
the oppoortunity with our current laws that we can decide our faith.

I am asking for guidance and honestly don't know where to begin. Oklahoma
has been operating by themselves for a long time and we need advice, support
and  guidance. I feel like we are fish out of the water. Please, I welcome
input and wisdom.
