    This is a good idea. Enlarging the pool of available contractors is a good step for OUSD. I support a better pool of local contractors and also hope that measures will be taken to make sure the companies are in fact locally run and operated, not just fronts to meet policies. I hope that this policy will become a vital part of the way OUSD contracts with and includes local companies in the future.

    I write in support of the proposed policy to amend OUSD's local business enterprise program. I am a parent of OUSD students, and a member of the Measures B, J and Y Citizen Bond Oversight Committee. These comments are in my individual capacity.
    The proposed policy changes to local business utilization rules would substantially increase the pool of contractors who can compete for projects while still maintaining the important benefits to local businesses provided by the program. Increasing the pool of applicants for construction is vitally important as OUSD embarks on capital spending with Measure Y funds. In particular, including agencies like the California Public Utilities Commission will better match projects with specialized skills such as energy efficiency and renewable energy projects that are specifically identified in Measure Y. More broadly, it is simply better for our district to have a variety of skills, prices, and expertise qualified to compete for projects at OUSD.
