9:02 pm
organizational chart all the different arms under the city administrator's purview. secondly, the department of public works, the prominent technology, in treasure island go separately from this department. her from public works today and you are from the department of technology after me. the only thing new this year is a new division that were creating a not talk about that were extensively later is a digital service team under internal services. going onto our next slide, you can see for the entire general service agency, which is both admin services, the prominent public works on the product technology, you can see what we spent last year in number of ftes. per admin services,
9:03 pm
budget was about three and $60 million this current year. mr. were proposing three and $64 million. per fiscal year 15-16-17 and over scare 17-18 were proposing three and $60 million. our fte count currently this year per admin services is 818.9. it's going up next fiscal year two and 45.9 and down this door 17-18 to 836.9. moving on you can see our expenditures uses. about 22% in salary and 9% is french. about this department and admin services is the real estate about a good simple shop and a 311. our largest amount of money goes to nonpersonnel services which is primarily paying off debt and debt payments from mosconi, debt payments for other facilities such as ones off van ness and leases and contracts to maintain our cities own buildings. we have about 11% going to work orders to other
9:04 pm
departments for services in about 7% going to grants. $2.3 million will be awarded from our neighborhood beautification committee challenge grants program. grants for the arts we issuing about $11.6 million in grants in real estate will be giving-with the dissolution of the redevelopment agency, it is anticipated that this year your the point of gardens will transfer over to the city administrator magically to real estate apartment and the management of that facility and typically ocii has given about $4.3 billion in grants to your bubbling a center for the arts, children's great city museum and other programs in that area. we spend about 4% on capital. everything from facility renewals to mosconi and childers coolers and also we are moving clinical advancement dollars that pay for emergency enhancement issues
9:05 pm
with the capital budget out of our operating budget materials and supplies about 4%. the largest line item we buy materials and supplies we buy on behalf of the city. the entire city notches admin services met about 70% of our materials and supply budget is the materials we buy on behalf of the city. our next slide is all of the different programs under admin services. the biggest changes whether increases or decreases in the budget you'll see 311 has an increase in this next fiscal year. is primarily work order from the treasury in tax court's office to help with taking calls with the rollout of the gross receipt tax. also, they project to update the telephone the system at 311. at animal cover and control, not industry but in the second year you'll see an increase about a little over $5 billion to help
9:06 pm
with the design phase of the new animal shelter. for capital assets planning is what i was referring to were taken capital dollars of the program. it's not reducing the program at all and putting it into the capital program with a part of my operating budget and that's what i call the critical enhancement bucket where it's everything from emergency when we have unanticipated emergencies like telegraph hill stabilization board harassment that we need to take care of during the year that was unplanned are moving that to these budgets. the medical examiner you see a decrease in funding their that's probably because it was one-time money spent for the construction with new facilities at one new hall which will open up in august 2017. real estate has an increase of their juju lease payments for increase in lease payments and risk management is grown due to growth in the premiums over the last year but i should note many of the premiums we recover from non-general fund sources. major
9:07 pm
initiatives, is always my last four years of being city administrators always been proved improved public safety to the increase staffing of the medical examiner's office to get her's and animal care and control option and outreach. additionally, as i talked about modernizing the essential facilities and infrastructure, this is been a very focused on this last year as you know we been before you to discuss the new animal care and control fleet management. were moving fleet in shops from 1800 gerald to down the street where we have a new and improved fleet facility and as i just mentioned, medical examiner facility is underway at one new wall under construction now and were looking to modernize that building. increase community participation and equity. we have our office of civic engagement and immigrant affairs. we are increasing community to expand into
9:08 pm
chinatown and the mission district. i'm excited to say were doing a lot of ground transgender equity i think the mayor announced he is a senior adviser on transgender issues. working closer with the mayor and city administrator over this last year we been working on closely many issues around that from anything from it signage of unisex bathrooms to revamping our how we issue death certificates of the medical examiner's office of a transgender individual. who wants to be identified by certain gender then we would honor that in support of the atkins bill assembly bill that passed we are looking at our municipal id cards and how we issue them and what type of documents we accept their to allow the identity the gender identities on municipal id card and much more. we look forward to working with the transgender senior advisor to the mayor.
9:09 pm
additionally, we have included more contact appliance officers out of the airport took without local business participation with all the capital improvements at the terminals out there. and, we just recently in the last two-these two are the last two areas were were focusing a lot on in the city administrator's office come and were in agreement with the budget and legislative analyst with the exception of three positions. the first position is a 0933 in the digital service new team, and basically, as part of this digital service team, as part of a good government after, the city administrator and mayor lee , my staff and mayor lee and chief digital officer and mayor's office innovation, we have projected eight your long
9:10 pm
research to modernize government. as part of that digital service strategy, we are proposing a new doctoral service team though i'll make sure residents can get the services they need from our website that we will dramatically improve the city's customer service experience. the digital service team will transform how residents dock with the city making our services faster, simpler and more accessible to residents are expected to be able to easily make government request online like applying for residential parking permit, a business permit, or marriage certificate. today, 90% of our services are not online including high-volume request like residential parking permits, which generate nearly 1,000,000 pieces paper each year for sfmta. this is more than just about better customer service. this about trusting government. if we can do the simple things to help our constituents i think the trust will improve. this is making government more sponsored transparent and accountable. this is also about equity making sure everyone including those with disabilities, the literacy or other of those on
9:11 pm
the other side of the digital divide can access government services. we should make people to jobs had to drive down or take public transit to city all just to do business. it's not fair to those and it harms of those who need the government services the most. so, what were trying to do is grade a small digital service team of three new positions in 0933, eight 5502, and 810 5312 department of technology and other departments build modern digital service projects by adopting a modern agile development practices using modern tools. this needs to help people get information and services when they need it, be it the city's website. this needs to be designing services from top to bottom not putting a pretty face on an ongoing process. the team report a city administrator with the mayor were closely with dt to establish policies and strategies. the other area where we are spending a lot of time looking at as a policy is paid parental leave and this is perfect timing to positions
9:12 pm
were in disagreement with the budget and legislative office over to positions that would be in our office of labor standards and enforcement. not only that pay for spot would be highlighting next nrk woman areas summit chaired by mayor lee and mayor schaaf. the office of labor standards positions requested are necessary to implement and enforce a paper rental leave for bonding with new child ordinance passed by the board on april 2016. the ordinance supplements california paid family leave grades the most expensive paid family leave in the nation. the client to dedicated staff to develop associate regulations, education and training programs and providing enforcement. the 2978 will coordinate with the state implement development department to fully determine how the paper rental leave ordinance interacts the state family leave law and together with a 2992 will provide enforcement. the office of
9:13 pm
labor standards already has a backlog of cases exist among dozens of labor laws including recent new laws for minimum wage, their chances and formal veto the chart attached. [inaudible] provides opposite is risen 75% in the last two years from 12.3 cases 221.4. without the new position gifts of labor standards enforcement will not be able to effectively engage the paper rental leave ordinance. as you know, last but not least, i won't go into it more but also helping treasure island and the development that's pretty helping there. i want to thank my team i'm a my cfo, my budget director adam wang, the mayor's budget office and currently i have really, we really in light of that were not in agreement over three positions, that a good working relationship with the budget and legislative analyst. thank you. >> thank you very much. this
9:14 pm
kelly. colleagues, any questions? that euros can we go to your report, please >> yes mr. chairman and members of the committee, on page 52 of our report are recommend reductions to the proposed budget total 859.283 and 16-17 of that amount for 95 our ongoing savings. 364.339 what i'm saying. i should state supervisors, this is the revised report we issued yesterday at instated june 15 to make sure were on the same page. so that we issued the first report which was in the first package and subsequent command discussion with that apartment we did revise that report and that was submitted to you, that was transmitted to you yesterday. should we give you another copy that mr. chairman? >> to my colleagues have a copy of that? i don't.you know
9:15 pm
what, i just pulled it up. >> so you have it. could it was an e-mail for friday >> exactly. so, in addition, we are also recommending you closeout prior-year unexpended encumbrances totaling 135.992. so that the equal total general fund recommended reductions of 9a 5.375. again, this to chairman, these numbers are the same. this is on page 53 of our report i am referring to. the partner department has requested 118 and 20 senior administrative analyst position is a interim exception to complete the interagency
9:16 pm
committee and one manager 05 positioned as an interim exception for digital services program. the budget and legislative panel recommends approval of the 1823 senior administrative analyst position as an interim exception but we recommend disapproval of a 9933 manager five position in the 16-17 digit which oh get to in a moment. recommend a reduction to the proposed budget total 732.262 and 70-18. supervisors, as i understand it, the department concurs with our recommended reductions on pages 54-58 of our reports good except for the digital services position on page 55 and the contract compliance officer two positions on pages 56 and 57. re: >> i'm sorry, can i just abate 50 love it digital services >> that's on page 55 that's correct >> you're saying it's a savings of 239? >> yes, that's correct >> sorry the next page >> then, the two positions the
9:17 pm
one at the bottom of the page 55, excuse me, not that position. i'm sorry. on page 56 the bottom of page 56 in the top of page 57. those are the two other positions we are recommending against. i will go over that in detail with you mr. chairman. >> that would be great >> okay, so going back to the regional services program, first of all supervisor, let me make it very clear, were totally supportive and recommend approval of the digital services program. in that connection, we are recommending you reduce the programmatic budget for the program, which is a new initiative as you know to reconfigure websites city departments to improve the user experience and to improve the german processes. the
9:18 pm
department is proposing three new positions for this program including a manager five a program manager, and a senior pious business analyst. the budget and legislative analyst recommends against approval the manager five position, which according to the department of human service, human resources job description is responsible for managing divisions of medium to large size. that is more than three employees. the budget and legislative analyst recommends and i want to emphasize this supervisors, we are recommending approval of two new positions. two of the three. so, we are fully supportive of the program. were stating they don't need the third position but we are recommending approval of two. that is the program manager.. we are recommending approval of as was the senior pious business analyst. which is that apartment in our judgment
9:19 pm
sufficient technical expertise to implement their program. we note there is not sufficient organizational complexity to want a manager five positioned for this function. we would also note this is not in our report supervisor good i'm letting you know that the department also has in addition, excuse me, the city also has one chief innovator officer, one innovation manager i'm a and innovation officer and one chief data officer. so, there are three other related positions in the city. that basically, explains our position on that-on our the
9:20 pm
reason why we are recommending against that position. with respect to the to conduct compliance officer positions on the bottom of page 56, the first one we are recommending that you not approve one new contract compliance officer position although the department states that there's a backlog in monitoring the healthcare security ordinance, the department reported-and this is crucial supervisors, for the entire city-but justice department-the department reported seven vacant contract compliance officers positions. in this program. filling of these positions would allow that apartment sufficient resources to manage the backlog. think of our own personal budgets. if we got seven positions that are vacant, why would we request and spend money for a new position? that's what we are saying with respect to that position. on page 57, similarly, we say we recommend you not approve the one new contract and compliance officer position although department states is a backlog in monitoring and healthcare security ordinance the department reported seven vacant conduct compliance officer positions in this
9:21 pm
program. filling of these positions would allow that apartment sufficiently to manage the backlog. i want to emphasize, that money is going to be left on the table supervisors. we are just saying let them fill positions could don't approve a new position of the seven dolby eight positions, some of those eight positions will never be filled in this next fiscal year or never be fully fill. that's all we are saying. when not saying that they don't need these positions. >> thank you mr. rose. do want to comment at all? >> i will comment. the digital services 0933 manager, i should note the 0933 was approved by dhr could i think they reckon eyes the complexity and the leadership and skill set that's needed at a high-level position because you need to have not only understand the technical skills, but also technically from an it standpoint but also be able to up in political
9:22 pm
skills to look at business processes. it's not just it. look at the business processes of different departments so they can be streamlined and be a better way before we start automating. additionally, you need a leadership skills because this person will be interacting not only with the department heads and cio but board of supervisors and myself that you need a high-level position to basically change a culture. as i point out 90% of our services are not online and this is we need someone to change agents and have the leadership skills to change a culture to move there. it's not just again as i said it's not just it. so i know you pointed out cio, the chief innovation officer, the open source data officer, but it's more about what is our logo, branding, website, or style in changing business processes. in private sectors, the digital service there is a digital service
9:23 pm
director that is different from the chief innovation officer. the site cio and the open data officer. when it comes to office of labor standards and enforcement, yes, there was artificially a hold in filling vacancies primarily i do that because it was a change in leadership. as you know that our former director of labor standards enforcement retired and was a new director coming in. typically, a professional courtesy we will positions to allow for those allow the new director to start filling those positions. we are using temp to back fill those positions. so, even if we had those positions filled the seven vacancies filled which we are aggressively filling those positions now, we still have
9:24 pm
that same backlog and a number that i talked to earlier about about even with others positions filled were still struggling with keeping the number of cases each of those contract compliance officers having increase cases from 12.3 cases 221.4. i do think having -they do need more conduct compliance officers were aggressively filling those positions now. >> okay. colleagues, so we have disagreement on three position. we can defer until next wednesday we can act on them right now were also open to comments from my colleagues. supervisor weiner >> with the positions relating to implementation by ose the paper rental leave our lives, just remind me, remind me exactly those positions are? >> the contract compliance positions, hold on, let me pull it up. it's a 2978 contract compliance officer two and a 2992 contract compliance officer one. they would be
9:25 pm
specifically for the paid parental family leave ordinance. >> for the enforcement >> yes for the enforcement, but also we have to rollout the education garbage the rulemaking that happens. >> mr. rose, in terms of that specific issue the to positions so that we can implement and educate and enforce around this important policy that i honestly care a lot about since i offer the legislation, could you explain why you think they should not have that? >> yes. supervisor weiner you're totally supportive of that function. what we pointed out is there are vacant positions. now, that obama has stated that with respect to the vacant positions, there's some temper a salary money that they're using. i would request supervisors, you do defer at least those two positions. we would like to take a look at
9:26 pm
the temporary salaries that apartment is referring to but basically, supervisor weiner to address your question, excluding the question i still out of temporary salaries, is we are saying to simply do the function by filling seven vacant positions. not adding two more positions when you have seven vacant positions not. so were totally supportive of the fog. i do a question about the temper he salaries if the committee would let us go back and look at that. i would appreciate that but whatever is it it's up to the committee >> personally, on that specific proposed cut of the bed to reject that cut right now but if colleagues would like to wait a week that's fine as well. whatever the committee decides. >> supervisor tang >> thank you to all those in issue i care about a lot, i would like to give mr. rose the opportunity to look at the temp salary issue. >> okay. colleagues motion we will continue-and then we will have our city of mr. grbac next
9:27 pm
wednesday our city administered back give mr. rosenfield >> >> mr. chairman, so there were those two positions which will go take a look at the would've anything to add on the digital services. again, were questioning the manager of the three employees that we don't have any other comments on that whatever the committee decides. on that >> okay. mr. rosenfield the one at anything at the moment? >> supervisor, it would be possible of this agreement on a majority of the items here in those three open issues to be held for us in terms of processing the budget the committee to take those places whether is it agreement and continue those three items until next week's discussion. >> okay. supervisor tang >> i deny the rest of the committees feel but in terms of the digital services program
9:28 pm
and the manager position, that something that i would actually support keeping in the budget for this particular upcoming year. per my understanding, i do believe it's really difficult for us to recruit really great it talent from the city given our ancient systems to work with and really pushing forth a culture shift here. so, i do understand why we have to have someone in that role and at that salary level. so, i would be prepared to except that particular i mean to reject that particular cut >> okay. supervisor kim >> i would move forward controllers recommendation that we move forward on the peace of the budget were not your recommendation but the proposal to forward the we move forward with the items were in agreement with. i actually like more information on these positions that were in either
9:29 pm
multiple thoughts and feedback from the departments on how we best deliver it services and i would like additional time. >> okay so perhaps then there's a motion to accept a budget analyst recommendations, except for these three positions we been talking about . and we debate goes out so we can take those into our [inaudible] right now and then deferred until next wednesday the remaining three positions. can i have a motion to that effect. moved and seconded. can we take that without objection? without objection the motion passes. of course they'll be subject to public comments on monday. >>[gavel] >> thank you. to our city administrator we have one other department. i know >> item number seven is still open. >> thank you. colleagues, i'm sorry real quick ornaments and seven to public comment. anybody was to comment on this item seeing none, public comment is closed. >>[gavel] >> have a motion to send items seven to the full board of supervisors for july 12 meeting? moved and seconded. we can take that can we take that
9:30 pm

9:41 pm
projects. in an incremental function putting windows with her excavated. specifically those recommendations at the moment off the top of my head don't directly impact the implementation of date once. this am vehicles there that are related to our fiber infrastructure team so it affects those vehicles have the intended use of helping us install fiber which would make use of that date once conduit over time so it's related insomuch as it's ultimately offer the benefits of better conductivity and fiber across the city. that's the specific recommendation that correlated but >> but in terms of direct impact on date once, none of these proposed cuts are
9:42 pm
[inaudible]. no. the proposed cuts are not reducing the fund we have available to participate in date once. >> other than the vehicle as you mentioned none of them impact dick wants? >> not directly. >> okay. other than the vehicles other any that impacted indirectly? >> like i said, there's more work that we can do with more funding. >> right but the mayor a lot of you a certain amount of funding could i have a new think was not enough that i'm going to try to get you more money so were not covering up streets for 30 years without putting conduit in, but victims of cuts that mr. rose is proposing, do any of them in any way undermine your ability to fully implement big ones understanding this should be more money overall for you to do it? >> no. the three categories of cuts work on the discussing
9:43 pm
with mr. rose's office don't directly impact dick wants. >> you keep saying the rug. is an indirect >> i'm sorry they don't impact dick wants. >> great, thank you. >> outside of the more specific as all >> college, any of the questions q mr. was going to go to your report? >> mr. chairman and members of the committee on page 27 our report recommend reductions proposed budget total 1,000,008 of that amount 32.546 ongoing savings 776 176 or one-time savings and of the 1,000,001.58 722 recommend reductions, 844.307 our general fund savings. so that's another area mr. chairman where there's a difference between the total recommendations and the general fund recommendations. which you can see if you want to look on page four other port just in

9:45 pm
be futile to have further discussions that i haven't said that with any other departments. was respectfully, that is my judgment. the me just in general, supervisors, you remember last year. i told you that that apartment had salary seedings had way too much in salaries. that they would never spend it. we do not accept the recommendations and let me tell you what happened last year. in fact, that apartment is projected to have a $3.2 million salary surplus this year. last year the department had $4.7 million could supervisor weiner, this is not a question of where we are taking money away. it's a question of they can't spend it as fast as you give it to them. that's all we are saying here we are not saints reduce services. we agree that these projects are very very important. we're only saying to
9:46 pm
the board, if you want to have a additional funds to reallocate, you might as well take money that we know they will never be expanded this year. you can give them all the money in the world that they can expend it is not to be expended. that's why we're making the recommendations that we are making. specifically, on page 28 of the report, we say increase savings by $600,000. to account for the diamonds accounted surplus of two point 4,000,015-16. 32 vacant positions reported by the department as of april 30, 2016. the department's production of attrition savings of $386,000 and 16-7. that's a one-time reduction. on page 29 of our
9:47 pm
report, with respect to the claimant purchases, we say to leave for replacement vans. the barman is requesting-now this is different by said they cannot spend the money. they could spend this money. delete for replacement vans gather barman is requesting for the placement bands that were put into service in 1999 through 2004. according to the city's fleet management reports department currently has 35 vans seven which were purchased in the last three years have no recent mileage. this is from fleet management. this is not our numbers. these 35 vans have an average mileage of less than 3200 per year and each of an average maintenance cost of $7000 per year. therefore, the product should have sufficient vans to meet the operational needs without purchasing [inaudible] older vans if their maintenance costs exceed their usefulness. on the right-hand
9:48 pm
side of the bottom of page 26, delete one replacement band, partners requesting one replacement plan in 17-18 and 21, a quarter disease fleet management report the department probably has 35 vans , seven of which were purchased in the last three years have no recent mileage. again, this the same explanation. on page 30 of our report, 4017-18 recommendation to delete two new suvs that apartment is requesting to replace two vans. the prominence requesting three total suvs of which we recommend approval of one suv to replace an existing suv disapproval of two. as we previously as i previously mentioned mother, and has 35 vans, seven of which which were
9:49 pm
purchased in the past three years of which the city's fleet management division reports no recent mileage. on the bottom of page 30 in fiscal year 16-17, we say to delete one new 1824 principal analyst, the position in the open data group currently they opened out group has five positions including chief officer, to program managers, to geographic information specials. the five existing positions are sufficient to accommodate the workload of the open data group including new initiatives. on page 31 of our report,-so to make it clear, that apartment disagrees with every single one of our recommendations. they do not agree with anything. on page 31, reduce the budget for the contract to match actual
9:50 pm
historical spend actual spending on the contract was 57,014-15 and 44,015-16. we are recommend that they get $60,000. well above what they been expending the last two years. on the bottom of page 31 in fiscal year 16-17, reduce the contract or project manager services by $150,000. the apartment has use content managers in the permanent staff but higher for full-time 5504 project managers and 15-16 which should provide sufficient project managers resources. if you hire staff you need less outside consultants. on 17-18 similar recommendation, which would be a go from three or $92,000 to zero. we say reduce the contractor project management services to zero instead of in 18 department has use content managers and will permanent staff but higher for full-time project managers and 15-sick did in fact, its
9:51 pm
general policy of the board if we can get civil servants to do the job then that apartment can reduce the contract shall service it. that's what we are saying. now, just a little more information supervisors. i want to state that that are increased to increase savings by $6000, that accounts for 32 vacant positions in historical understanding. the department reduced its attrition target for fiscal year 1617 x 300 $86,000. they went down but has 32 vacant positions. but as i just mentioned to you, the department is projected to have and the controller can contradict me if i'm wrong, the department is projected to have a $3.2 million salary surplus in this fund this year. last year the department as i said had eight $4.7 million surplus.
9:52 pm
our recommendations are very reasonable. they've got millions of dollars that they simply cannot and will not spend. that's why were making this recommendations. that's why there's no going back to the apartment. we been around and around. given the millions of dollars unspent funds that apartment can implement their recommendations about any reduction in service whatsoever. regarding the new vehicles, the only thing i would add is, or emphasize, we are recommending approval of two of the new vehicles. were recommending disapproval of seven. so there's nine new vehicles in total and again our recommendation to approve to add it disapprove seven. we point out, as i stated that apartment has seven existing vans purchase with the last three years. but each of which have
9:53 pm
no mileage, no recent miles reported according to the league management division. i don't know what else to say, supervise. that's a recommendations. will be happy to respond to any questions. >> thank you. supervisor tammy >> thank you for your report. one of the piecesi would have mind going over in more detail is the attrition fees with ms. rose if we could continue because i feel a little uncomfortable not knowing the details as i think about. the others i would say i will be supportive of the mr. rose's recommendations. >> okay. colleagues from any comments or questions? i think this is one where we do have i understand on every line item we could take action on some or
9:54 pm
all here today. supervisor yee, new york doesn't continue the discussion on one of them or another option is to bring the department of technology back next wednesday for open discussion on the entire budget. commissioner >> would you like me to respond to summit >> sure. >> we had some conversations ongoing dialogue with mr. rose's office and i fully acknowledge the attrition numbers in fact that's what we were attempting to come to an agreement on that attrition. the number is actually it is still significant but as run down because we have really made that change in the staffing situation by execution of a hiring plan that execution and the planning is continuing going forward. so we think you will continue to go down over time but certainly willing to have a conversation about what that correct target >> could you tell the committee mr. chairman, how much you think you could be reduced from your salary savings this year? where we
9:55 pm
could increase attrition saves. you just indicated you could do that. can you tell me the number? >> i think what we contacted that with was $700,000. in addition to the current projected attrition. >> what was that all about? >> 700 the current recommendation i think was six. we added $100,000 to it. >> hold on. let me understand that. you said you could do a higher attrition savings in the budget analyst is recommending >> >> yes we are doing negotiations to preserve the vehicle and [inaudible] services. >> i think to clarify, we have been having we give these recommendations of the apartment over a week ago and it had one long meeting and several phone calls. our concern was we actually a recommendations are based on actually information that we
9:56 pm
had analyzed and we think are good recommendations. while they were willing to were straight, we do believe that some of the other recommendations were once we thought should be given up that i think one area that is still-we has a standby or other recommendations as they are in the reports. i think the one area where there's been a dispute is there disagreement with the fleet management reports on their vehicle usage but we haven't received any other information that tells us something different than what the management has said about their fleet vehicle uses. >> okay. colleagues, but it's tempting to take action today. i would be in favor of continuing this discussion until next wednesday. i think this further discussion to be had around spots on fleets, it is like their savings to the agreed-upon here but it strikes me a little but of time might help out here and that's what we have next wednesday for. my colleagues, again i'll take
9:57 pm
that >> i agree >> what will you then we'll have you back next wednesday. i would ask mr. rosen, as the department as well, that ongoing discussions about fleet seems like there's more information to be exchanged let's do that. then, let's meet as well with my office and then we can pick this up on one circuit >> yes, sir >> okay. all right thanks so that is that for five and six will come back. are you ready to roll? okay. why do we close that item 5 and six. ms. rose didn't want to say something >> the only thing i want to inquire mr. chairman, we did a report on the item 9 could item of you call that is equivocal that yet. we originally was that of the piano bar jumped and i'm sure we're running longer than we thought. so, we'll just take the board of supervisors generator will close at five and six until
9:58 pm
tomorrow. and we'll call these other items. just to be clear we have two, three, and i'm left. >> and item 18 to the clerk. >> >> mdm. clerk would you please call item 18 >> item 18 >>[reading code] >> we will listen to item 18 mr. chairman. should we walked out? >> were fine. >> members of the committee, angela calvino i'm here today with joe-our admin deputy. were

30, 2017. the results from oca competitive solicitation were of value weighted as prescribed by the administrative code. this year, oca received bids from the san francisco examiner and the san francisco chronicle. we like to share those results with you now. the highest scoring and responsive bidder with the san francisco examiner scoring 29 point 4/32 points. as required by the administrative code, were also reporting these san francisco chronicle score of 24.4 points. however, the san francisco
10:13 pm
chronicle's bid is considered nonresponsive because the bid was not submitted on time and did not meet the administrative code requirements of being printed within city limits. because san francisco chronicle's bid was nonresponsive, oca cannot recommend a word to them. as in prior years, the board has the discretion to award the contract as you see fit to best serve the city's needs for public noticing. however, we are recommending award to san francisco examiner. the second resolution is regarding our outreach advertising bid. i'm also here to present the results of the bid, and it's estimated value for the next fiscal year is $20,000. the purpose of this contract is to reach a range of separate and diverse communities with information about the city's activities and operations. the

all the bidders for outreach advertising an opportunity to submit additional documents in order to evaluate the bids for the administrative code requirements. the total of seven vendors met the bid requires and two vendors-and san francisco bayview did not meet the bid requirement because they are either printed out side outside the city limits in or not printed with a frequency prescribed in the administrative code. as in prior years the board has the discretion to award the contract as you see fit to serve the city's needs for public noticing. historically, the board has awarded this contract to most or all bidders creating a pool publications accessible to meet department specific requirements. i'll be happy to answer any questions you have about this contract

10:40 pm
to change the energy supply and source for renewable power how were we accomplishing this we're leading by example we launched the city solar incentive that helped to install over 3 thousand three hundred solar installations and created green jobs along the way this program focus on empowering low income and the members to benefit for the city's growing economy has been especially successful we recently launched >> renewable energy program that offers san francisco residents and businesses an electricity option cleaner then their existing energy and just as affordable san francisco is not the only city taking action too there are over 2000 actions

10:50 pm
ago i believe we can be successful over the next decades to create the solutions to stave off a global climate discharge in the government setting the right policies and individuals stepping up to do the right thing but even if i'm relevant that won't change at fact warm is unavoidable we'll have to contend with those the melting of the parlor i'll say sheet in for your or san francisco bay area more than 200 square miles are vulnerable to the sea level rise with the more powerful i'd like to surges a storm lasting a few days can cost economics damages that's why at pg&e our focus on sustainability so the need to adopt to the climatic
10:51 pm
change to make your systems for resilient we're developing robust procedures and conducting a comprehensive assessment to vault storms and sea level rise as we see heat waves pg&e is among the utility that joined the partnering for climatic resilience to share best practices we've also commented 200 and $50,000 in stakeholders fund to protect and restore wetlands around san francisco bay area and provide to join with other corporate members of the abusing council and voluntarily supporting that with public officials andville organizations we're now and then a new program to granted money to public-private partnerships to share the instantaneously for
10:52 pm
climate resilience and specifically one million dollars to support local planning throughout our service area to help community better understand plan four and respond to climate change risks some stisz have sophisticated plans underway others are getting starred or face problems those grants we can learn from and with a focus on disadvantaged areas where the resources are lacking we see this as ass our commitment in support of communities we serve now for me that mission has then e taken on a personal resilience in the last 6 months i made two trips the first with governing california designation to the united nations climate change and part of geography to ann art
10:53 pm
can i cack with a faith in our ability to work collectively to solve this problem and i cack from ann articulate how crucial we fulfill that promise sooner than later a prominent research has seen temperatures rise 12 degrees in his years of working and paris made clear the world is looking to california for some of those answers and gave me the privilege to tell our story that about that success while much remains to be done a clean energy future is moving faster they than we thought possible we made progress at pentagon this year we expect to deliver 33 percent from qualified renewables and when
10:54 pm
you include our large ohio plant under california laws don't fit the definition more than 45 percent is cash free light years ahead of most other places within the next 15 years we'll be approaching 70 percent as we meet the target of 50 percent renewables and one key to the progress is bold target by the policymakers and the wisdom of utilities as partners a critical part of this is reaching barriers probation officer notify solutions the utilities have the unique ability to achieve and accelerate the use of low cash technologies and do so on the quick scale and demonstrated we can move renewable energy and drive down costs and keeping the grid
10:55 pm
reliable and customer bills down we can continue to do that if we work together with the right steps i think that 3 keys are crucial the first is continued investment in the grid the grid is the backbone of the economy and makes more than life possible the smallest grid it the backbone of a clean energy economy with more distributed intelligence online privately owned solar and electrical vehicles and the like the grid is more acceptable we see the grid that services what the internet don't say platform a network that pulls the energy and integrate them to have more value for everyone the second key to the future adopting our empower right now
10:56 pm
the market forces are evolving faster the regulatory framework that largely is stuck in the year of thank god that stalls our progress for example, in the u.s. an ongoing debate in meter that is an attempt to put band-aids on a antiquated process we need to make a changes and indeed examples regulatory environment slows down not just limited to the energy spear for those of you who flew into san francisco you might have noticed the span on the bay bridge the original part of that bridge is the part that is still standing and at the time that was built had the longtime suspected
10:57 pm
radios radio that is ahead of the grand jury designed is pencils and slide rules and built with more pleasantly labor than modern projects and took over 3 years to build the new span that is half as along with the engineering software and technologies and the crucial pieces are being reworked as we talk about the need for the infrastructure i'll life you to decide where this fraction can meet the climatic change and the third key comes from the spirit and letter of paris agreement to keep the focus on recuse carbon rather than one particular mix of resources by doing that it gives the utilities and entrepreneurs the freedom to
10:58 pm
find the options and maximize innovation and provide consumers progress we know the issue of climatic change is no fixed address many of you come from far away's places with our history i'd like to offer a few points i hope you can take back to our home first, as a tackle the numerous challenges of clean energy and solving the low cash look to the utility sector as a solution this is an industry that is used to doing big things an industry that was designed to serve the public interest part off dna we're good partners and the second as you look at those problems that need solving remember that we are more energy providers we can help with the resilience and clean transportation and we can help with public awareness and
10:59 pm
education utilities reach into every home additional business in your country we have relationship with millions in for the billions of customers and third look at the utilities in our areas as partners just as individual country's can't eliminate cash neither can we our industry is hunger for partnerships you can help to facilitate and nurture we'll continue to make progress offender climatic change we have to take advantage the utilities and all of us to work together to accomplish things in a big way but to unleaf this we'll need the right policies the road to paris leads through this room and through all of you the decisions you make in the next few years shape the world
11:00 pm
for decades and essential to the ability of our country's to deliver on the promises it is your engagement in overseeing issues that assure that future is right and the stories like the california meg flood remain in the history books where they belong thank you very much. >> (clapping.) >> thank you, very much. tony, say with great confidence not a business leader utility leader or company that has shown greater commitment to clean energy and pg&e we appreciate our leadership so, now we will have a high-level panel decision a sustainable urban systems so let me ask the panelists first welcome the executive director
11:01 pm
of international energy agency, mr. lien norris leader of petroleum and john first deputy mayor of china, and raphael gonzales the ceo of the north america inc. thank you for being you are here today enjoy the discussion. >> so ladies and gentlemen, i wish you, please enjoy the american lunch here while we're going to do discuss a few important issues before going to the panel which is a very expressive panel as you can see i want to make a few remarks two racks one about the year 2015 and the second is a major
11:02 pm
report we are going to release in half an hour 2015 much has been perhaps the most incredible years in terms of the fight against climatic change not only because of paris i'll talk about paris in a moment two other reasons why i believe 2015 could be a wonderful year for the fight against climatic change one 2015 ladies and gentlemen, zero two emissions did not increase like 2014 two years in a row we have seen zero emissions didn't increase even though global g dp increased more than 3 percent this has not been the case in
11:03 pm
the history we have seen only 3 times in the history when it didn't increase and all the 3 years is the financial crisis other than that for the first time two years in a right now 14 and 15 emissions remain the same good news now the year 2015 more than 90 percent of historical capacity the energy were renewable empowers and solar followed by other not the case 90 percent is impressive driven by china, u.s., europe and india and all other countries this is the second excellent news for 2015 and third was, of
11:04 pm
course, the power agreement i see the years in paris and he can assure you that paris the beautiful paris became much more beautiful after december 2015 i can assure i have many french they'll definitely agree with me and in paris in addition to the historical agreement there are two other important elements that needs to be underlined number one our agreements were agreement attempts it was not only a top down target but a button up all the countries brought their targets their policies how their issues extremely important and second paris also brought new actresses into the picture in addition to
11:05 pm
governments we have now the businesses and act dam and others part of game and other actor is local governments the cities therefore the paris is not only the amendment of all the countries of the world by the moeshltd were extremely important and in my view down to earth now great paris this to our panel we are going to do present or publish a major report in a hour of time two things i want to tell you about this this report focuses on a the progress in technologies we have a tasht in paris below two degrees and it is important to see how we are
11:06 pm
doing in different green energy technologies i'm not going to details you'll not lose your appetite we're not doing well there is some move a process but there are any areas we say are significantly lagging in our report highlights where we are progressing better than expectations with a target established in paris the second area the report focuses on the cities as already mentions about the 70 percent of the emissions come from the city 85 percent - so if you want to solve this problem we have to solve the problem in the cities and the cities in our report they're two areas extremely important one
11:07 pm
the building be sector from the installation of the building to the for example, the cooling requirements which or go to psychopath in the next year's to come and what kind of cooling units we're going to use the standard is extremely important for fighting against climatic change the other area we look at the transportation we look into how we can see even a bigger move in terms of the electrical vehicles which one million cars another good news but much for electrical cars and what are the favorable conditions but also the underlined the public transportation how to subsidize public transportation and the rest of
11:08 pm
the moves in the city we see in the beautiful city of san francisco but ladies and gentlemen, the main issue is the emerging countries cities which number of buildings built in the city and the buildings is 75 hundred years of time we should look into the future in the buildings which are not efficient so those are the issues that we deal with in our report maine the buildings and the transportation issue so we have now an clean out panel here one minister from the government and the mayor from the e merging country and the company which is dealing with energies i will move to the panel and perhaps start to ask the gentleman the minister of
11:09 pm
norway mr. minister your country is the highest share of electrical cars in the world into the total car fleet in our country how do you see is measures put forward and what is it in the future so far as 20 percent if not share of cars in norway are electrical cars which compress the gloeshld average of unfortunately zero want one percent so how do you do that. >> mr. minister. >> thank you, dr. for your kind words and a moment to look at in a moment in time negative impact 2012 the paramount decided the goal to have 50 thousand electrical vehicles and that goal was already xhoetsd
11:10 pm
last year and today 70 thousand fewer electrical vehicles and hybrids if we have hybrids bylaw but basically most of benefits were put in place already in 2002 and 3 and the car didn't take off until 2000 but not before 2011 and so what are the reasons i think the obvious reasons for things to happen in 2011 was the fact that there were cars on markets that were really cars that could meet the needs of families in a safe manner you have the problem we're starting to address in a proper way to say a greater
11:11 pm
range in norway we have a power system like 8 percent renewable sources nobody in norway we're able to say okay. your changing our diesel car with pure renewables, of course, the tax and obviously of great importance a high new car sales tax for cars and however no new car sales tax for electrical vehicles of course, the same goes for petro and hardly any tax think renewable energy on the policy on the basis there is free parking in cities free ferry rides, access to bus
11:12 pm
lanes and from the government does we have good strong efforts into building capacity we targeted isn't urban where most people live establishing with the transportation for everybody and now we're actually connecting the major cities in norway and this has led to this norway with 4 million people the second and the third largest market bean by the u.s. and china which has more people than norway as you can imagine and a fiscal benefit the in fact, that is when it comes to fueling
11:13 pm
meets the connection from petro fueled cars which will forever have high taxation and a competition in the decades ahead but if i might add one thing before i leave the word back to you why do a tremors effort in reducing local pollutions reducing and co-2 emissions they come up justice department just as much space on the roads to have the basic strategy for ongoing electrical vehicles instead of building public transportation system could be a wrong solution. >> thank you very much mr. minister for highlighting the critical role of public
11:14 pm
transport even though the cars are moving fast in terms of populating the global fleet and mr. minister said if you have to have electrical cars certain share of your car fleet we need policies and also some regulatory measures and very important as i mentioned mr. minister that in order to have an amount of benefits electricity fitting the car must be also clean otherwise the benefits may not be so obvious so i just mentioned that the statistics are important for climatic change but the e engineering countries are important so we're very lucky the first
11:15 pm
deputy mayor of in china under jack and you mr. mayor have an excellent experience in our city of the pushing this smart upper public transportation and sustainable energy can you tell us how you realized what steps you took and whether or not the story you have in your city can be a model for other cities in china. >> thank you sorry don't speak good english so i need a translator.
11:16 pm
>> (speaking foreign language.) >> i want to thank the california the governor of office for inviting us to attend this meeting the president of the china has made a commitment via the unclimatic change in paris the reduction of cash emissions in china and now the whole country is taking action i'm very glad our city is very glad
11:17 pm
to endorse the mou and now under the leadership of the central government we are connecting with california we find the plan of actions with california and now we are promoting our policies closely. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> this is a city in east of china been shanghai the american female writers who is also the the nobel prize in litter she grew up in china for 18 years and described as her hometown in
11:18 pm
china. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> this morning i heard the speech by the government of california gosh and i agree with him very much we need to transfer our commitment to actions. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> so our apart from the separate transportation we have conducted many efforts for the reduction of cash emission in the city and our efforts can be
11:19 pm
concluded from 5 perspectives. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> first, we set up the goal of achieving cash peak. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> at cop 21 pointed out that cashier emissions will peak in around 2030. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> based on a scientific analysis and calculations it is one of the earlier city to
11:20 pm
achieving 10 years earlier than the national goal and average. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> preceding in the current situation we're confident it we have the ability to realize the goal. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> second we need the best tools for the contractions how much the cashier emissions like drinking water we have to take sip one by one to know how much
11:21 pm
water we can drink. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> by using clot commuting i owe the technologies we segregate land use, environment and sources and industries and safety reduction and cashier emissions by doing so we can hanger and reexamine and check the cash emissions reduction in the city. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> now we conducted realtime
11:22 pm
online monitoring over 48 key emissions companies in the city the total emissions is 80 percent of the cities total. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> during the past 5 years over three hundred chemical plans were shut down. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> nearly 11 towns of cashier emissions is reduced. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> third, i think about apart
11:23 pm
from the activities of the business sector one important actress in the reduction of cash emission is people's livelihood. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> so the motorer mentioned buildings and transportation are very important factors in the reduction of cashier emissions. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> so we've taken 9 major actions to reduce the cash emissions in the city.
11:24 pm
>> (speaking foreign language.) >> is action include optimizing the industry and encouraging the low cashier industries for production developing cash buildings and low cash incurs and low cash transportation for low cash development. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> so, now the low cash development and the awareness have come to - has been raised amongst the people. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> fourth we highlight the highlight of our efforts zero cash demonstration projects in
11:25 pm
the city. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> we select city and two islands in our city as pilots. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> last i think that the most for the international cooperation like the meetings during the two days a very good opportunity to learn from other countries and regions.
11:26 pm
>> (speaking foreign language.) >> in october of this year we were holding international infection of low cashiers and products the interact welcomes companies and expert from all over the world to join us i'd like to extend our opportunity and hope you have a look in the country city and our low development. >> thank you, mr. mayor for this excellent presentation of achievements of our city is it so interesting what you said your city's image as 2020 before the aggregate promise emissions this is one of the in my view
11:27 pm
most important outcomes coming from paris the architect of paris agreement and she was agreeing with me the peak in 2020 both the underlying agreement is critical to reach our goal now the other thick that is critical to reach you are goals within the energies in greece in the urban systems and the entering green power is one we're fortunate to have other green power with gonzales is with us and can you tell us about our sclernz how do you merge the smart renewable and just the generation of models. >> okay. good afternoon and thank you for inviting me to participate first, let me
11:28 pm
explain the activity of urban power that is part of a viability and it is investing in renewables and investing in conventional duration that works and we we have activities in other places as well let's start to explain the our vision and strategy for how we are implementing these in the notifies in the renewables so our region is open power to solve the main challenges of the world open power needs to supply energy to the people they don't have energy supplied. >> open power means a tool to
11:29 pm
be open to innovation and new technologies and to use this system technologies as well as on a different way in a way we have here in nevada an assembled combination of technology, solar tv and solar concentrated open power needs to find and open ways to manage the energy on a different way as well in relation to the demand and generation and to be open as well to paris so we can't build this by ourselves we need to have paris in this sense so how we approach what is the business model ♪ smart cities we're taken so our vision we are open to the scope
11:30 pm
and to the local initiatives so it is different for example, in mellone we have builds for the first time in the world the first smart city refell fill a city designed for one hundred thousand people supply renewable energy solar and we see the light systems as well as market the light systems and smart mobility and smart challenges and the system is implement to manage all this on the right way this is an assembly all assembles are depends on the local scope and the local needs we have all this examples in
11:31 pm
mellone another smart city by started almost 7 years ago so a combination of generation of solar as well and integrate these in a smart way and incorporate these on a different way and obtaining at the same time efficiency in the management of the grid the salesforce are important and in this instance sustainable we're doing the specific initiatives with sharing cars for example, and bus car in chillingly and electrical taxis in above the blue and windy sea to we're contributing utility on those different specific requirements and it is important ♪ sense the corporation with the
11:32 pm
place the local authority and government is very supportive on this sense we can't do this type of initiatives without the support and the engagement of the local activities the most - the locals say the local communities and consumers and so much it is necessary to solve with them this project so make it as sustainable and reliable and affordable thank you very much so ladies and gentlemen, we're at the end of this two things if i may undermine we understood the cities are extremely critical if we were to address our climate challenge number one
11:33 pm
and number 2 local governments we need to be bring a critical roll in terms of which measures then and how when it comes to buildings and when it comes to the transportation and when it comes to the electricity generation we've seen the minister show up how hi country increases cars and from the mayor how successful in emerging countries and how successful and seen from the ceo they agree and visit us and still make money if those 3 can do we can all do as well thank you very much and thank you >> (clapping.) >> thank you very much. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> thank you, sir and thank
11:34 pm
