Citizens Redistricting Commission
Releases Invitation To Bid for In Process Reviewer



The Citizens Redistricting Commission announced that it released an Invitation To Bid for a contract to be awarded to an individual(s)for technical expertise for an in process review of the line drawing for the Legislative, Congressional and Board of Equalization districts.   The Commission has not yet made the determination whether it will have an in process review conducted, but is going out to bid to be ready if it actually decides to do so.

The In Process Review is a procedure to confirm that the criteria required by the Voters First Act and the Voters First Act for Congress, the directions provided by the Commission to the technical consultant (line drawer), and the provisions of the Voters First Act and Voters First Act for Congress, are correctly followed and are reflected in those maps that the Commission requires to be reviewed, if any. 

The results of the review will consist of a report from the Process Reviewer detailing his or her determination of the extent to which the map(s) under review conform to the Commission's stated criteria, and suggestions, if any, for improving the map(s) conformity to the Commission's stated criteria.  The In Process Reviewer will not review a map or set of maps, apart from the map(s) specified by the Commission.

California's first Citizens Redistricting Commission is a new 14-member Commission charged with redrawing California's Senate, Assembly, State Board of Equalization, and Congressional districts based on information gathered during the 2010 census. The Commission must draw the State Senate, Assembly, State Board of Equalization, and Congressional districts in conformity with strict, nonpartisan rules designed to create districts of relatively equal population that will provide fair representation for all Californians.
