Memphis Colleges Mostly Silent on Privatization Contract


Following the premature signing of an outsourcing deal between the state of Tennessee and commercial real estate management company Jones Lang La Salle (JLL), higher education institutions in Memphis are remaining mostly silent on whether or not they are considering opting in to the grounds and facility maintenance management contract.

So far, UTHSC is the only Memphis university to weigh in on the outsourcing contract through David Miller, the entire University of Tennessee system’s chief financial officer.

“Each campus within the University of Tennessee will meet with the proposed contractor and receive information to help determine whether contracted services would be in the best interest of the campus,” said Miller.
