Comment Dawn Urbanek

This Item should have been pulled from the Consent Calendar

There is a discrepancy between the Nov Contract and the December Addendum.

DISCUSSION ISSUES:

Should school districts spend so much time and energy on fundraising?

Should school districts have to use general fund dollars to track fundraising and donations? This is a $41,000.00 contract to basically track fundraising and donations.

Should school districts be allowed to fund on-going program expenses with one-time money?

BACKGROUND

This contract was pulled by Trustee Reardon at the November 16, 2016 BOT Meeting Agenda Item #6 because he wanted clarification on the optional service for Doc-U-Manage which had a licensing fee of $1,999.00 per year. The block on Page 3 was not filled in so he asked for clarification about the extra service. Staff said No, and that the box would be checked "No" before the contract was submitted.

The original contract is attached below.

Trustee Reardon moved the Item with the correction to check the box NO for Doc-U-Manage 

The Item was passed 6-0-1 with the Correction (Trustee McNicholas was absent)

DECEMBER 14, 2016 MEETING

Staff brought this contract beck with an Addendum that modifies the services to include monitoring the Funding Request Number (FRN) utilization to determine the District is reimbursed appropriately.

Agenda Item #11 states " This addendum to the previously approved E-Rate compliance contract with CSM Consulting Inc. modifies the services to INCLUDE monitoring the Funding Request Number (FRN)..."

However, when you read the changes to the contract it has deleted the FRN Funding Request Number and Staff has checked NO on page 3 of the contract?
