In chart on this slide, March and April 2011 are high because they include the December and January Priorities in Funding apportionments (90 day TLOFR for PIF)
In chart, numbers on left axis represent the number of apportionments set to expire at a given time.
1st PIF (August 2010) released 100% of funds for a total of: $408 million, 78 projects in 42 school districts
We want to ensure that apportionments under the 2nd PIF round are just as successful for fund release. 2nd round OPSC is tracking, providing outreach, sending reminder lettersNOTE: 2nd priority round funding requests MUST be in OPSC possession by the due date. Postmarks will NOT suffice.
2nd PIF Round stats:-December apportionments: $1.4 Billion, 442 projects in 137 school districts-January apportionments: $103.8 million, 26 projects in 19 school districts-February apportionments (anticipated): $40.6 million, 18 projects in 13 school districts
Current SFP unfunded list: 506 projects totaling approximately $1.278 billionHow is it prioritized? The Unfunded Approvals list is created using a specific order. Board Unfunded Approval dateOPSC received DateOPSC program code in numerical order from lowest to highest. For example new construction applications with a program code of 50 would be listed first and Career Tech modernization applications with a program code of 59 would be listed last. Please note Facility Hardship applications will be placed at the top of the Unfunded Approvals List. District code in numerical order from lowest to highestHigh School Attendance Area (HSAA) code from lowest to highest. Project number from lowest to highest.
OPSC will maintain the unfunded list if more $$ becomes available in future bond sales
ALL SFP Projects on the unfunded list are eligible to request PIF $$Unfunded Approvals = Board Approved projects, please note not a guarantee of fundingTIP: Be familiar with the Priorities in Funding rulesBe prepared to file under future PIF roundsFuture bond sales to make cash available: Governor Brown has stated that there will be no bond sales this spring or summer 2011, however possible bond sale in fall 2011.
Cash Management Subcommittee:-Options discussed for enhancing priority funding mechanics-Subcommittee discussed a permanent reg change to Time Limit on Fund Release (90 days) as opposed to continuing Priorities in Funding rounds
Amounts indicate remaining bond authority for particular programs amounts indicated include current unfunded approvals
Remaining Bond Authority (in millions):Modernization: $899.1ORG: $446.0New Construction: $316.5Seismic Repair: $194.8Charter Schools: $172.1High Performance: $76.5Career Tech: $23.4Hardship: $13.4COS: $1.4Energy: $0.8Joint Use: $0.6OPSC has remaining bond authority in Mod, NC, ORG, Seismic, and HPILets go over some helpful tips in those programs as we want to help districts be able to maximize opportunities to participate in the programs.

This will be the first in a series of quarterly workshops throughout 2011
A survey was provided to districts and stakeholders to solicit input on the topics they would like to see presented by each agency. Agencies are currently analyzing the survey results in order to develop the workshop agenda.
