District board eyes policy shift to facilitate Measure Q projects

By From page A6 | January 15, 2014

FAIRFIELD — Solano Community College’s governing board will consider a temporary policy shift Wednesday that staff reports indicate will streamline Measure Q construction projects.

Trustees will discuss delegating authority to the college’s superintendent/president and “certain key staff” in approving potential Measure Q construction change orders that fall within the 10 percent construction contingency.

If a potential change order is expected to exceed the limits described in board policy, it will go before the governing board.

When potential change orders are consolidated into change orders upon a final negotiated price, the change order will be presented to the board for approval.

Staff reports indicate this move is in order for the bond measure “to run in an efficient manner.” If approved, the authority will be granted on a trial basis and will be reviewed in January 2015.

Measure Q is a $348 million general obligation bond passed by area voters in November 2012.

The meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. at 360 Campus Lane, Suite 201, Fairfield.
