October 27, 2011 (COLUMBUS) The Ohio School Facilities Commission (OSFC) today approved more than $60.6 million in contracts for school construction and renovation work in 16 school districts across Ohio and at the State School for the Blind / School for the Deaf project in Columbus.
OSFC Executive Director Richard Hickman stated, “These 40 construction trade contracts represent a continuing investment in Ohio’s schools. Ohio’s ongoing school construction program is not only delivering high quality educational facilities, but it is also providing good jobs in lean economic times”
Since its inception in 1997, the Commission has disbursed over $9.5 billion in state funding for school construction and renovation.
Construction trade contracts are approved by the Commission after the competitively bid contracts are awarded by the local board of education.
