Default Sale of NCCC in Marion to a private company ?

Does anyone have any recent information on the proposed sale of North Central Correction Complex in Marion to a private company? I know a legal challenge was cleared, via a state supreme court ruling in favor of the state. So is a sale process now moving forward?

I have a good friend in that prison and I'm concerned about the implications of an outright sale -- for the inmates specifically, but also as a matter of public policy more generally. I don't live in Ohio. If anyone has more recent info I would greatly appreciate it!

Update: FWIW, my friend inside there says what they've heard is that no companies are interested because the facility needs like $20 million in repairs/upgrades to meet DOC standards. Which if true begs the question of why DOC isn't already requiring that its standards be met.
