Re: SMART phone proposal

Dear Andrew:
Please see below the proposal for the new SMART’s. This proposal is for 14 new units. In both cases,
BBB will be responsible for the purchase of the units and the purchase of the cases. Based upon our
provider (Verizon) we are given two options. Please see the breakdown of the positives for option 2
below the proposals.
1) iPhone Without Data
Cost Breakdown
One Time Costs:
$250/iPhone
$35/Griffin Survivor Case
Reoccurring Cost:
None.
Estimated 1st Year Cost for 1 Device: $285
Estimated 1st Year Cost for 14 Devices: $3,990
Estimated 2nd Year Cost for 14 Devices: $0

***BBB will be responsible for the entire amount - $3,990***

2) iPhone With Data
Cost Breakdown
One Time Costs:
$5/iPhone
$35/Griffin Survivor Case
Reoccurring Cost:
$50/month per device for 2GB data plan.
Estimated 1st Year Cost for 1 Device: $640
Estimated 1st Year Cost for 14 Devices: $8,960
Estimated 2nd Year Cost for 14 Devices: $8,400

***BBB will be responsible for the cases & the purchase of the phones ($40 X 14 = $560)***
****CBD will be responsible for the Data Plan ($50/month X 14 pcs X 12mths = $8,400)****

REVISED

The reason why option #2 is the better of the options is listed below.
1. Real-time device mapping
a. This allows us to pinpoint the Ambassador’s exact location out in the field
b. In case of an emergency and the ambassador is not able to communicate, we can locate
them in less than a minute.
2. Real-time submission of completed jobs or jobs needing extra attention via the SMART system
a. Allows for efficient entry into the SMART system immediately after the job has been
completed or documented.
b. Allows for accurate tracking and more precise statistics when running daily & weekly
reports.
3. Time Saver & Increased Efficiency – Ambassadors can stay out in the field longer instead of
having to come in 45 minutes early to manually enter all their data for the day and wait for their
devices to sync and deliver their information.
4. Back-up communication device in emergencies – the devices can be used to make an
emergency 911 call or call the base of operations just in case their radios malfunction.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read over the proposal. Please let us know which one best
suits your needs, so we can move forward.

Kind regards,

PROJECT APPROACH AND ORGANIZATION
ORGANIZATIONAL APPROACH
The project will operate as part of the already operating Oakland Ambassador Program. This successful
program already has the tools and resources necessary to complete the project. The Ambassadors that
are assigned to complete the job will be operating under the same supervisory structure that currently
exists on the ground.
Please note that while we intend to hire a professional glazer to repair the special laminated glass panels,
we must work out the details with the City of Oakland in terms of liability for repair.
The following graph illustrates how the management and supervision of the program will take place:

BILLING RATES
We are aware that there are currently three RFPs out for bid with the City of Oakland. These RFPs
th
include Maintenance Services for the Bart 17 Street Gateway, Landscaping Maintenance at T5T6, and
Property Maintenance at Parcel 4 Uptown. As part of our budgeting process we’ve put together two
budget scenarios. These budgets are designed to show what the individual costs of operating each
program would be, and what the cost savings of a combined program would generate.
Because the Downtown Oakland Association and Block by Block would operate all of the programs within
our current scope of work, there is administrative cost savings and well as the sharing of resources. If we
are awarded all three contracts we will operate under the combined Program Budget.

Temescal Telegraph Business Improvement District
April 6, 2017

BACKGROUND
The Downtown Oakland Association (DOA) and the Lake Merritt-Uptown District Association (LMUDA)
were asked by the Temescal Telegraph Business Improvement District (TTBID) to provide initial pricing
for supplemental cleaning services. Working with their service provider, Block by Block, DOA and
LMUDA developed this initial budget that assumes the following operational elements:
107 hours of cleaning service each week for the TTBID
11 hours of pressure washing each week for the TTBID
Use of DOA/LMUDA equipment, including pressure washing unit and trucks
Uniforms that would be distinctive to the TTBID
Ambassadors assigned to the TTBID would operate under the current DOA/LMUDA leadership
structure
Water for pressure washing is not included
We’ve also included two standalone pricing options for watering 103 planters along Telegraph Ave. one
for normal watering and another taking advantage of the East Bay Municipal Utility District’s graywater
program.

QUALITY ASSURANCE & SUPERVISION
In each BBB program we assign a local Operations Manager to provide oversight and direction to our
teams and to ensure contract expectations are being met. Scheduling, logistics, personnel management,
training, and the point of contact for all program related items is handled by our local Operations
Manager. We are proposing the Operations Manager be shared with the DOA and the LMUDA as a way
to minimize budget impact while still getting the local support that’s needed to ensure a sound operation.
Another aspect of managing the contract will be reliable quality assurance practices. Quality assurance
audits can be performed by either the Operations Manager, another member of the Block by Block
management staff, or the DOA/LMUDA staff. The result of the QA audits provide a measurable basis to
judge the effectiveness of the program and allow for an opportunity to identify hotspots that need to be
addressed by staff.
The proposed structure is depicted below:

WAGES

motivated, require less supervision, and will result in less turnover. We are proposing the following

Re: Mural for 2001 Broadway, Downtown Oakland
The site at 2001 Broadway is a premier location for a mural in downtown Oakland. The
historic architecture, color and nature of the building call for an elegant piece of artwork
that compliments its presence. The artist chosen must understand such a visible site is
not the forum for overtly political or offensive artwork. As one of Oakland’s premier
locations there must also be consideration for the social, racial and economic
implications of painting such a site. There is potential for community backlash if the
design and artists chosen do not engage or represent Oakland.
This is a large site and must be handled by an artist that is capable, proven and
professional enough to accomplish such a feat. This is not the site to put an amateur.
We feel that the artist who best meets these criteria is Oakland’s own Jet Martinez. Jet
is an extremely accomplished artist, very well respected and well received. He has
shown in prestigious galleries and art fairs all over the world and has done countless
murals for both community and high end establishments. His floral patterns are
universally liked and enjoyed. His style is unique; he is well sought after and has a large
social media following. He brings an established artistic credibility to the project as well
as the style and elegance the site deserves. He can work within any color palette so he
is the perfect artists to design a pattern that blends well with the existing green facade.
Some examples of Jet’s work:
-His mural in Facebook Headquarters
-Working on his Mural for Kaboo Del Mar Music festival

There is also the possibility for this mural to be a collaboration between two artists, one
local and one international. This combination could bring international acclaim to the
site.
One artist that comes to mind that could work perfectly with Jet is Argentinian based
artist Pastel, who also paints beautiful floral images and has much international acclaim.
The combination of the two would be a win- win for both the building itself and the
community. Jet is one of Oakland’s brightest stars in the art community, coupled with
Pastel’s international appeal the mural would become an instant artistic icon and make
2001 Broadway the ‘coolest’ building in Oakland.
Examples of Pastel’s work:

Both artists are masters of capturing elegant color palettes, soft tones and universally
appealing work. Either would make an amazing statement in our Downtown, together
they could create an astounding piece of cultural diversity and artistic vibrancy.

recommending.

Concept:
Our concept is to paint the mural in Jet’s signature floral patterns. Making it an instant
Oakland icon, as Jet is one of our most prominent and beloved artists. We want to use a
color pallet that works with the existing green facade of the building, to accent but not
disrupt its historic nature.
Maintenance Plan:
We have executed many murals in Oakland. We have found the most ideal way to
secure a mural is to seal it with ‘Graffiti Defenz’, a specific product made by Precita

REVISED

Eyes Mural supply in San Francisco. This sealant is a UV protectant as well as an antigraffiti clear coat. Once applied properly graffiti can be ‘wiped off’ like any other dirt
without it disturbing the mural. The mural can then essentially be maintained like any
other private property with regular cleaning and maintenance.

Completion Date:
Upon approval the mural can be completed by July 1st.

Budget:
This mural is being executed in collaboration with HP Partners who now own the
building. They have expressed their own desire to see a mural commissioned at the
site.
This is a massive site with serious logistical needs for execution. We are asking for the
maximum contribution of $5,000. for this project as the estimated budget is over
$20,000. The additional funding is being provided by HP Partners.

Artists Bio and Resume:

REVISED

Jet Martinez BioOakland-based artist Jet Martinez (born 1973) is known for creating vibrant works of art that put
a contemporary spin on folk art motifs. Originally from the small beach town of Tuxpan,
Veracruz, Mexico, Martinez takes inspiration from his native culture’s rich traditions of pottery,
weaving and embroidery. His latest murals enliven the rigid architecture of cityscapes with
ornate patterns and entrancing, abstract visuals.
An influential figure in Bay Area public art, Martinez served as the director of San Francisco’s
acclaimed Clarion Alley Mural Project (CAMP) for 10 years from 2004 to 2014. His work with
CAMP has been integral to the creation and preservation of public art in the Mission District, a
historically Latino neighborhood known as a bastion for underground arts and culture.
Rhythmic, floral patterns unify Martinez’s various series of paintings from over the past 10
years. He predominantly works with acrylic paint and enamel on panel, rendering organic
shapes that push the boundaries of form and color. Much like the craftspeople who create the
ceramics and textiles that inspire him, Martinez prioritizes technical skill and embraces the
imperfections of the handmade.
Martinez has exhibited in reputable galleries and art institutions nationwide, including Joseph
Gross Gallery, 111 Minna Gallery, White Walls Gallery, Museo de Arte y Cultura Latino
Americana, Syracuse University and many others. He has painted murals in locales as diverse
and Oaxaca and Zurich and created commissions for companies like Facebook, Hilton, Kiehl’s,
John Fluevog and Redbull. Currently, he shares his Oakland studio with wife and fellow artist
Kelly Ording and is focused on his muralism and studio practice full time.
