DISTRICT FOCUSES ON HIRING LOCAL, EXCEEDS BOARD OF EDUCATION STANDARDS
The City of
The school district strives to support both the community and the hiring of qualified local contractors, suppliers, vendors and individuals providing professional services.† The Board of Education deems it important that local, small, women, and minority-owned businesses compete for these available opportunities.† Therefore, the school board has established a 15% business outreach participation goal.† As of July 2011, the Measure BB program is exceeding these standards by 2%.†
In support of the City of Santa Monica's Buy Local Hire Local program, the Facility Improvement Projects (FIP) office will be hosting a networking event in collaboration with Santa Monica College and the City of Santa Monica on Nov. 9 from 5-7pm at Lincoln Middle School Auditorium to discuss various bidding opportunities, including the Districtís $356 million dollar facility improvements projects program, Measure BB and the Civic Center Joint Use Project (CCJUP).††
The goal of the event is to attract qualified individuals and businesses, increase awareness and participation in the Hire Local Buy Local program and to provide networking opportunities for school and public procurement.† The District's multi-million dollar program requires a large combination of qualified contractors and professionals.
