Experience with OPSC, DSA & SAB

Office of Public School Construction (OPSC) – In addition to attending or monitoring key State Allocation Board and Implementation Committee meetings. CCM subscribes to CASH/FAX, OPSC and SAB updates and obtains notice of new developments as soon as they occur. In the course of developing our CM proposal for one District in Southern California for their proposed modernization program, we identified that despite apparent eligibility that would give rise to a $140 million program, the District’s ongoing funding activities were so ill timed and poorly strategized that they would likely result in obtaining less than half of the funding that they were eligible for. We offered expert funding support through our own resources and those of our colleagues, and the District accepted that support. Under CCM’s leadership, all architectural agreements and schedules were restructured, eligibility and funding request filings were accelerated and followed up on in Sacramento, and a rigorous, disciplined process of follow-through was instituted among both district and development team personnel. All OPSC requirements were met, and the district was one of the few that achieved 100% funding of its entire eligibility for all 29 schools and it did so with only 4 days to spare before OPSC modernization funding was exhausted.

Division of State Architect (DSA) – Throughout most of our past and present programs, CCM has been welcomed as a member of the team that ensures good relations and timely compliance with Division of the State Architect requirements, both during design and plan check phases and during construction and closeout. Close monitoring and correction, where necessary, of DSA documentation requirements from the start of construction through construction change documents, compliance and inspection requirements, is an integral and very important aspect of the construction management process with CCM, especially in light of streamlined procedures by DSA. CCM employs a team of close-out specialists whose sole focus is on this very important task. This team, led by Danica Wood, not only ensures the timely certification of projects that CCM manages, but also routinely works with other Construction Management firms, General Contractors, and Architects to achieve certification on projects that CCM is not otherwise involved in. The basic steps CCM takes to achieve certification of older projects include:

  • Determine number of District projects that are closed without certification;
  • Meet with District to prioritize projects; identify issues preventing certification;
  • Meet with AOR; search District Files; contact Testing Lab for missing reports;
  • Request files from DSA;
  • Develop and implement a Resolution Plan with AOR, IOR, Testing Lab, and others;
  • Collect and organize final documents;
  • Request re-examining fee from District; submit documents to DSA;
  • Follow up and follow through with all parties until certification is achieved.
Experience with OPSC

State Allocation Board – We have assisted Districts in preparing for determining the allocation of bond and other state money for their new building program and modernizing their school facilities. We have assisted Districts in preparing for appeals, and gaining an understanding of the adoption of new policies and regulations.
