OUSD LBU Monitoring

  • LOCAL BUSINESS UTILIZATION POLICY

     

    In order to provide economic opportunity for Oakland residents and businesses and
    stimulate economic development, the Oakland Unified School District ("District")
    implemented in December of 2008 a program that has directly impacted how public
    funds are spent. The 2008 program, commonly referred to as the Local, Small Local
    and Small Local Resident Business Enterprise Program (2008 S/SL/SLRBE) has
    proven to be a great success, stimulating economic development through the
    support and empowerment of the local community, especially groups that have
    historically been disadvantaged. The District's primary goal under the 2008
    L/SL/SLRBE was to partner with the local community and demonstrate its leadership
    by harnessing local resources so as to achieve maximum local benefits. In 2014 the S/SL/SLRBE policy was amended to raise the Local Business Utilization to 50% participation on OUSD Capital Projects.  You can find the 2014 policy amendment by clicking here.
