Re:

Recommendation to Waive Three Year Bidding Requirement for Oakland Venue Management

Dear Board Members:
The Bidding Policy and Procedures for the Downtown Oakland and Lake Merritt/Uptown Associations
require that Major Contracts be put to bid every three years. The Bidding Policy and Procedures provide
that existing contracts may be extended beyond the three year limit with Board approval, and that such
Board approval must be accompanied by a written justification for the extension. The Major Contract
with Oakland Venue Management (OVM) for District Management Services originally expired on
December 31, 2016, and the Board subsequently approved a one-year extension through December 31,
2017.
As a member of the Downtown Oakland board, it is Lincoln University’s recommendation that we further
extend the OVM contract through December 31, 2017. I base this recommendation on the leadership,
productivity and accomplishments of the OVM staff over the years. The OVM management team (Steve
Snider, Andrew Jones, and Tori Decker) continually demonstrates that they can accomplish their goals
and the goals of both CBDs.
The OVM team has represented the needs of both districts in their interaction with City of Oakland
departments and staff very well. They have also shown they are flexible and can adapt to challenges that
are presented to them. The OVM management team has also shown they have built very good
relationships with Oakland stakeholders, which was evidenced by their tremendous work helping to
ensure the Oakland Central Campaign was successful, and will continue to grow.
Lincoln University believes OVM is best equipped to see us through the next year, especially as we head
into a renewal discussion. They possess a thorough yet nuanced understanding of the needs of the
Districts and stakeholders. By extending the OVM contract for one year we can continue to leverage the
many relationships and programs in place to continue the upward momentum of the Districts.
Sincerely,

Michael A. Guerra
Board Member, Downtown Oakland Association
