Bill to Protect Contractors in Controversial Deals Moves Forward
May 6, 2016, 2016 |By Sara Libby
EXCERPT: Last year, a 5th District Court of Appeal ruling put millions of dollars in payments to contractors who worked on school construction projects under no-bid contracts in jeopardy.
     This week, California Assembly's committee on education advanced a bill that would protect those payments even if they're deemed illegal because of a conflict of interest.
     Unlike typical public-works projects, so-called lease-leaseback projects have allowed schools to forgo competitive bidding and merely choose the contractor they want. The district then leases property to the contractor for $1 a year, while the contractor builds improvements. The contractor then collects lease payments from the school district for up to 40 years until the project is paid off.
     But school districts haven't been treating the deals like true leases. Instead, they've paid contractors in full upon completion of a project like a normal construction job. That's illegal, the 5th District decided in Davis v. Fresno Unified School District.

Mission Statement 

To promote school district accountability by improving the training and resources available to California's Proposition 39 School Bond Oversight Committees and educating the state legislature, local school boards and the public about the oversight and reporting powers these Citizens' Bond Oversight Committees (CBOCs) have, and to advocate on a state level, where appro-priate, on issues of common concern to all CBOCs.  

CBOC Operation Guidelines
Provides a basis for the BOC to perform a self-assessment of their operations and identify training needs. Could use as outline to develop a training program for committee members.
