(1) Existing law authorizes school districts and community college districts to contract for personal services currently or customarily performed by classified employees to achieve cost savings when specified conditions are met. Existing law requires the overall cost savings to be clearly demonstrated and sets forth certain requirements relating to comparing costs. This bill would repeal those provisions. The bill would instead authorize school districts and community college districts to contract for any noninstructional services of any type, if awarded pursuant to certain provisions of existing law governing public contracts, and if the governing board of the school district or community college determines that the contract will provide a benefit for the school district or community college district. The bill would prohibit the contract from being invalidated for specified circumstances relating to food service functions and positions. (2) Existing law requires contracts for management consulting services relating to food services not to exceed a term of one year, and that contract renewals be considered on a year-to-year basis. Existing law prohibits a contract for food service management consulting services to eliminate any food service classified personnel or position, result in any adverse effect upon any food service classified food service personnel or position, or result in the supervision of food service classified personnel. This bill would repeal those provisions. The bill would define the term "food service management services" to include specified functions, and would authorize school districts and community college districts to enter into contracts for food service management services for a mutually agreed upon term, subject to specified conditions. The bill would prohibit a contract for food service management services from being invalidated for specified circumstances, including that it results in or causes the elimination of a food service classified personnel or position. (3) Existing law sets forth certain requirements relating to higher education employer-employee relations, including, but not limited to, the requirement to meet and confer in good faith regarding terms and conditions of employment. This bill would declare that these employer-employee relations provisions do not limit the authority of the University of California, the Hastings College of the Law, and the California State University to enter into contracts with 3rd parties for noninstructional services, as prescribed. (4) The California Constitution authorizes the Governor to declare a fiscal emergency and to call the Legislature into special session for that purpose. The Governor issued a proclamation declaring a fiscal emergency, and calling a special session for this purpose, on December 19, 2008. This bill would state that it addresses the fiscal emergency declared by the Governor by proclamation issued on December 19, 2008, pursuant to the California Constitution.
