Applications Received Beyond Bond Authority

 

The Office of Administrative Law approved emergency regulations on November 1, 2012 that impacted how the Office of Public School Construction (OPSC) processed applications received when existing bond authority is no longer available for New Construction and Modernization applications. These regulations established a State Allocation Board (SAB) acknowledged list for projects that are received by OPSC after bond authority is exhausted. The list is called the “Applications Received Beyond Bond Authority List." Applications placed on this list only undergo an intake review to ensure all of the required documents have been submitted, but are not be fully processed by OPSC nor presented to SAB for approval.

All New Construction and Modernization applications received on or after November 1, 2012 were subject to the new regulations and processing procedures, as approved by SAB at the September 2012 meeting. With the passage of Proposition 51, $6 billion was made available to fund New Construction and Modernization applications. At the June 5, 2017 SAB meeting the SAB authorized the processing of applications utilizing Proposition 51 funding; therefore, the requirements processed identified below are not currently in effect.

Below is a summary of the processes that take place when bond authority is exhausted.

 

Application Processing

After applications are received and date stamped, OPSC intake staff review the application packages to ensure that no required documents are missing. Application packages that include all required documentation are identified as Approved Applications.

Additional Required Document

A new construction or modernization application package received on or after November 1, 2012 AND on or before June 5, 2017, must include a school board resolution that includes several acknowledgements, as specified in regulation section 1859.95.1. If the district has multiple applications to be submitted, the district may list all of them on one Board Resolution. As bond authority is currently available, this requirement is not currently in effect.

Applications Received Beyond Bond Authority List

Approved Applications are placed on the “Applications Received Beyond Bond Authority List” in the order of date received. This list is presented to SAB for acknowledgement, but not approval. Because the applications are not fully processed for final grant determination, the project funding amounts on the list are estimates only, and will likely be different if finalized. As bond authority is currently available, this will not occur. OPSC staff will currently process applications in date order received.
