IX.B. Second Interim Financial Report

Speaker:
Erin Lillibridge, Chief Financial Officer
Quick Summary / Abstract:
Presentation and approval of the 2016/17 Second Interim Financial Report.
Rationale:
California Education Code Sections 42130 and 42131 require each school district to file interim financial reports twice a year.  The first report covers the financial and budgetary status of the District for the period ending October 31st. The second report covers the period ending January 31st.  Both interim reports require Governing Board approval and certification of the District’s financial condition.  The purpose of the interim reporting process is to raise early warning flags for districts that will not be able to meet financial obligations for the current or two subsequent fiscal years.

The interim report includes the following documents:
– Second Period Financial Report (Fund Forms 01,11,13,14,21,25,35,40,49,52,73)
– Attendance Summary (Form AI)
– Multi-Year Financial Projections
– Criteria and Standards
The 2016/17 Second Interim Financial Report for the period ending January 31, 2017, is before the Governing Board for approval.  Statute requires the Governing Board to certify in writing whether or not the District is able to meet its financial obligations for the remainder of the fiscal year, and based on current forecasts, for the subsequent fiscal year.  The Second Interim Financial Report reflects all changes resulting since the District presented its 2016/17 First Interim Financial Report.  Staff will make a presentation on these adjustments at the Governing Board meeting.

Based on current revenue and expenditure assumptions, staff recommends a positive certification of the 2016/17 Second Interim Financial Report.

Financial Impact:
As reflected in the attached report.
Recommended Motion:
Staff recommends the Governing Board approve the 2016/17 Second Interim Financial Report, and adopt a positive certification pursuant to California Education Code Section 42131.

IX.C. Guaranteed Maximum Price – Lease-Leaseback Contract for Placerita Junior High School Modular Building Project (Balfour Beatty Construction, LLC)

Speaker:
Michael Otavka, Director of Facilities, Planning and Construction
Quick Summary / Abstract:

Request approval of Lease-Leaseback Final Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) for Placerita Junior High School Modular Building project from Balfour Beatty Construction, LLC (Balfour Beatty).

Rationale:

On November 16, 2016, the Governing Board approved a preliminary GMP of $4,868,138 for the Placerita Junior High School Modular Building project. Staff had been working under a deadline to complete the Lease-Leaseback contract with Balfour Beatty, by December 2016. For that to occur, Balfour Beatty had to provide the District with a preliminary GMP based on preliminary plans and specifications since the plans had not yet received Division of the State Architect (DSA) approval.

Plans were finally approved by DSA in November, two months later than expected. DSA made extensive changes to the plans which substantially increased the cost of the work. The final GMP reflects the cost of the changes made by DSA.

Financial Impact:
$1,540,572 increase on the previously approved preliminary GMP of $4,868,138. Final GMP is $6,408,710 from Measure SA (Fund 21). This total includes an owners contingency of 3% and a contractor’s contingency of 3%.
Recommended Motion:
Approve the increase of $1,540,572 to the Balfour Beatty Construction, LLC, Lease-Leaseback Agreement for a Final Guaranteed Maximum Price of $6,408,710 for the Placerita Junior High School Modular Building project.
