          *********** ANALYSIS ADDENDUM - SUSPENSE FILE ***********
             The following information is revised to reflect amendments 
                     adopted by the committee on August 27, 2015


          Bill  
          Summary:  This bill, an urgency measure, authorizes a pilot  
          program for the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) to  
          use best value procurement for projects over $1 million.


          Fiscal  
          Impact:  
           Unknown, but potentially significant savings at the district  
            level to the extent that (1) the district elects to use a best  
            value procurement method, and (2) that the method realizes  
            savings that would surpass potential increases in costs from  
            not choosing the lowest bidder.  This bill is permissive, and  
            would also allow LAUSD to continue to choose the lowest  
            responsible bidder.

          Amendments:  Removes the Legislative Analyst's Office from the  
          reporting requirement and shifts the responsibility to an  
          independent third part paid for by LAUSD. Provides other  
          technical changes.
