* Cox Immediate Past President of CSAC serves without Board of
Supervisors’ appointment



      1/10/06                                                                           6
     Note: This item was carried over to the 2:00 p.m. session. County Counsel made the
     following statement regarding this item:
     “Item 2 in your board agenda today request approval of several appointments of board
     members to various committees, commissions and boards. This item is divided into 2
     categories of recommendations relative to the appointments. The first category of
     recommended appointments includes appointments to committees, Commissions and boards,
     where there’s no compensation for service. The second category is dealing with
     recommended appointments to committee, commissions and board where there is some form
     of compensation for service. These 2 categories of recommendations have been separated
     because prior to acting on the recommended appointments to those bodies that provide
     compensation, there needs to be for the record a statement indicating that the appointments
     will involve some form of compensation. Therefore for purposes of disclosing this
     information on the official record, I’m stating at this point in time on behalf of all the board
     members, that the appointments to those particular committees, commissions, boards where
     there’s compensation will involve those payments. In addition to payment, a board member
     may not participate in any discussion or vote on the particular matter relating to his or her
     appointment to those types of bodies, and so therefore what’s done with recommendation 1B,
     is separate that in order to insure that your board, when you vote on this, that board members
     up for appointments to those particular bodies will be registered by the Clerk of the Board as
     not voting for that particular appointment. And so we’ve provided to the Clerk of the Board
     language for purposes of the recommendation that will accomplish that, and so if your board
     approves this on consent, that will allow the board to approve all these appointments in
     compliance with these official statements on the record.”

4.   SUBJECT:        CHILD AND FAMILY HEALTH AND WELL-BEING REPORT CARD
                     2005 (DISTRICTS: ALL)
     OVERVIEW:
     In August 1997, at the recommendation of Supervisors Cox and Jacob, the Board of
     Supervisors approved the development of the Child and Family Health and Well-Being
     Report Card. On June 16, 1998 (28), the Board approved the use of public and private funds
     for Report Card development and production. The Report Card provides ongoing monitoring
     of economic security, health, access to services, safety and educational achievement
     indicators that reflect the health and well being of children and families in San Diego County.
     Data in the Report Card are tracked over time to establish trends. The trends are highlighted
     for a three- to five-year period. The most current data are compared with State and national
     data, where available.
     Today’s item requests Board authorization for public release of the 2005 Report Card. This is
     the seventh production of the Report Card. The 2005 Report Card provides data on 25
     measures:
      Improvement over a three- to five-year period is shown in eleven of these measures:
         CalWORKs Assistance, Births to Teens, Self-inflicted Non-fatal Injuries, Substantiated
         Cases of Child Abuse/Neglect (Overall and for Blacks), Unintentional Injury
         Hospitalizations and Deaths of Children and Youths, Court Cases Filed Against Youth

     1/10/06                                                                                    12
     Offenders, Violent Crime Victimization (Ages 0-11), Children (Ages 0-15) Injured or
     Killed in Motor Vehicle Crashes Due to Alcohol, and Students in Grade 8 and in Grade
     11 That Scored Proficient or Advanced on the English Language Arts Test.
 Five measures remain stable: Early Childhood Immunizations, Children (Ages 16-20)
  Injured or Killed in Motor Vehicle Crashes Due to Alcohol, Domestic Violence, School
  Attendance, and High School Graduates that Enroll in College.
 Over a five year period, five measures show trends in a negative direction. These are:
  Unemployment Rate, Poverty Rate, Suicide Attempts, Babies Born with Low Birth
  Weight, and Students in Grade 3 that Score Proficient or Advanced on the English
  Language Arts Test.
Board authorization is also requested today to transition ongoing responsibility for the Child
and Family Health and Well-Being Report Card to The Children's Initiative, through a
contract with The Children’s Initiative that will support future development and
dissemination of an expanded Report Card every two years. Transitioning the Report Card to
The Children’s Initiative will enhance its use as a catalyst for strategic planning and program
development among the multitude of public and private sector agencies that serve children
and families in San Diego County. The track record established by The Children's Initiative
in analyzing issues affecting children and families and convening local stakeholders to
address child and family issues makes them uniquely qualified to take on the responsibility of
the Child and Family Health and Well-Being Report Card.



Staff recommends that Purchasing & Contracting enter into negotiations with The Children's
Initiative to contract for three years, with three option years, at an estimated cost of $25,000
annually, to ensure a smooth transition of responsibility for the Report Card from the County
to The Children’s Initiative, with concurrent expansion of the Report Card.
FISCAL IMPACT:
Funds for this request are included in the Fiscal Year 2005-06 Operational Plan. If approved,
this request will result in current year cost of $25,000 and subsequent year cost of $25,000.
The funding source is County General Fund. There will be no change in net General Fund
cost and no additional staff years.
RECOMMENDATION:

1. Receive and authorize for public release the San Diego County Child and Family Health
   and Well-Being Report Card 2005.

     Department of Health Services. Board action is also requested to adjust CHIP appropriations
     to reflect the State allocation and to appropriate County CHIP trust fund interest.
     FISCAL IMPACT:
     Partial funding for this request in the amount of $1,938,764 is included in the FY 2005-06
     Operational Plan for the Health and Human Services Agency. If approved, this request will
     result in a current and subsequent year increase in cost and revenue of $1,310,176 in State
     allocation and $17,094 in county CHIP interest for a total of $1,327,270. The revised total
     California Healthcare for Indigents Program budgeted amount for FY 2005-06 is $3,266,034.

6.   SUBJECT:        ESTABLISH MINOR PROJECTS AS-NEEDED LISTS IN THE
                     DEPARTMENT OF GENERAL SERVICES FOR ARCHITECTURAL,
                     ENGINEERING, AND RELATED PROFESSIONAL SERVICES
                     (DISTRICT: ALL)
     OVERVIEW:
     As manager of most of the County of San Diego’s facilities, the Department of General
     Services must meet on-going capital and maintenance needs in a prompt and cost-effective
     manner. The availability of As-Needed consultant lists for Architectural, Engineering, and
     Related Professional Services allows the Department to meet the County’s immediate needs
     for minor projects assistance with a streamlined solicitation and selection process, while
     maintaining the integrity of competitive procurement. Other departments may also have
     access to these lists. With approval of this request, the Department of General Services will
     have authority to establish Minor Projects As-Needed lists of firms that have undergone a
     competitive selection process outlined in Board of Supervisors Policy F-40, Procuring
     Architectural, Engineering, and Related Professional Services. These consultants would then
     be available to provide services for minor projects and initiatives when required. If approved,
     this request would establish lists of professional consultants valid for a term of up to three
     years. The maximum capacity for each consultant is $500,000 of contract authority during the
     three-year period. However, contract authority may be extended beyond the three-year period
     if projects require additional time to complete and funding capacity remains available.
     For single projects with a contract value over $250,000, (defined as a Major Projects in F-40)
     a separate Qualifications-Based Selection process will continue to be used pursuant to Board
     Policy F-40.
     FISCAL IMPACT:
     Funds for the “As-Needed” consultant lists are budgeted in the Major Maintenance Budget
     and in specific Capital Outlay Fund Projects. The funding sources are the County’s General
     Fund, other County funds, and other agency grants, and will require the addition of no staff
     years. If the maximum number of anticipated contracts (12) at the maximum amount


     1/10/06                                                                                 15
     ($500,000) were to be issued and spent in a three-year period, the total cost of this proposal
     would be approximately $6 million or an estimated annual cost of approximately $2 million.
     It is anticipated that the “As-Needed” lists will save the County an estimated $7,000 in staff
     time per individual solicitation, for a total of between $56,000 and $84,000 by eliminating the
     need to conduct 8-12 separate solicitations for anticipated projects over the next three years.
     BUSINESS IMPACT STATEMENT
     Expenditures resulting from this action may create private sector jobs and economic
     opportunities in San Diego County.
     RECOMMENDATION:
     CHIEF ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICER
     1. Authorize the Director of General Services to establish intermittent requirements Minor
        Projects As-Needed lists consistent with the Board Policy F-40 Qualifications-Based

        The lists shall expire after three years, although contract authority up to a maximum of
        $500,000 may exceed three years if projects are still in progress and funding remains
        available; waive the use of the City-County Joint List identified in Board Policy F-40.
     2.   Authorize the Director, Purchasing and Contracting, to execute contracts for
          Architectural, Engineering, and Related Professional Services as deemed necessary by
