As you are aware, Enron utilizes temporary staffing services to satisfy=20
staffing requirements throughout the company. For the past several months,=
project team, representing Enron=01,s temporary staffing users, have resear=
and evaluated alternative Managed Services programs to determine which sour=
would best meet our current and future needs in terms of quality, performan=
and cost containment objectives. The Business Unit Implementation Project=
Team members are:=20

In addition, Eric Merten (EBS), Kathy Cook (EE&CC), Carolyn Gilley (ENA),=

Selection Project Team.

As a result of the team=01,s efforts, we are pleased to announce the beginn=
of a strategic alliance with CORESTAFF=01,s Managed Services Group. This g=
will function as a vendor-neutral management entity overseeing all staffing=
vendors in the program scope. They will also provide a web based online=20
technology tool that will enhance the ordering and reporting capabilities. =
The goal of our alliance with CORESTAFF is to make obtaining a temporary=20
worker with the right skills and experience easier while protecting the bes=
interests of the organization.=20

We plan to implement Phase I of this improvement effective January 2, 2001.=
This Phase I of the implementation will encompass administrative/clerical=
temporary workers at the Houston locations only. If you currently have=20
administrative/clerical temporary workers in your department, the enhanceme=
will not affect their position. In an effort to preserve relationships, all=
current staffing vendors will be invited to participate in this enhanced=20
program. CORESTAFF shares our commitment to minimize any disruptions in=20
service during this transition.=20
We expect to incorporate the administrative/clerical workers in Omaha,=20
Seattle and Portland in Phase II, which is scheduled for February, 2001. T=
scope and timing of any additional phases will be determined after these tw=
phases have been completed.

Realizing the impact that the temporary workforce has in business today, we=
selected CORESTAFF=01,s Managed Services Group based on their exceptional=
management team, commitment to quality service, and creative solutions to o=
staffing needs. The relationship promises to offer Enron a cost effective=
and simple means for obtaining temporary employees.

In the coming weeks, Enron and CORESTAFF=01,s Managed Services Group will b=
communicating to Enron=01,s administrative/clerical temporary staffing vend=
about the new process. =20
