The SDCCD Citizens’ Oversight Committee (COC) is an advisory body to the District on matters related to the Propositions S & N construction bond program implementation as required by California’s Proposition 39, which mandates that citizen advisory panels be established to assure accountability for the use of public funds.
The Committee’s three main duties are to:
  • Inform the public on the District’s expenditures of bond proceeds.
  • Review expenditures to assure that proceeds are being spent for projects approved and outlined within the proposition(s).
  • Produce and present an annual report to summarize the Committee’s proceedings and activities within the prior year.
Members are appointed to the COC by the Board of Trustees for the District, and represent many diverse backgrounds and areas of expertise, including business, public finance and construction management.
Membership involves the following:
  • A two-year term. Members in good standing are eligible for a second two-year term. Members may not serve more than three consecutive terms.
  • Attendance at four quarterly meetings per year. Meeting dates are identified at the start of each year, and generally run between 60-90 minutes.
  • Attendance at subcommittee meetings, generally four to six per year. As with our full COC meetings, the subcommittee calendar is developed at the start of the year, and generally run between 60-90 minutes.
  • Participation in periodic campus facilities tours to view construction projects in progress.
