The Court has recently learned 15 that the City has entered into a contract with Strategic Policy Partnership, LLC, to conduct a 16 comprehensive review of the Oakland Police Department. In addition, it has been reported in 17 the press that the City has augmented two of the contracts it has entered into with outside law 18 firms to conduct investigations related to Occupy Oakland. For one of these firms, it has 19 been reported that the contract was increased from $100,000 to $275,000 – a 175% 20 increase – and it is not clear why the original estimate was so far below what the City now 21 contends is required. 22 To ensure that the record is complete, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the City shall 23 file, on or before September 21, 2012, a list of all contracts it has entered into or modified 24 since January 24, 2012, that relate, directly or indirectly, to NSA compliance. For each 25 contract, the City must identify the contractor, including a list of responsible individuals if 26 the contractor is an entity; the amount of the contract; the contract’s scope of work; the date 27 the contract was entered into; and the actual or expected completion date for the contracted 28 work.
