Measure Q contracts, DoD grant are on SCC board agenda

Several contract change orders related to Measure Q, a Department of Defense grant, an agreement with the Bay Area Clean Water Agencies for classroom instruction are on the agenda when Solano Community College leaders meet tonight in Fairfield.

Trustees will review and likely approve some half-dozen small Measure Q contracts before considering a significantly larger one with Pacific Gas & Electric for electric service facilities for intersection improvements at the Vacaville Center on North Village Parkway. The contract is nearly $68,000 to relocate a junction vault out of a classroom building driveway. It does not include related trenching work, according to agenda documents. (Measure Q was the $348 million bond passed by Solano County voters in 2012 to improve and modernize college facilities.)

Trustees are expected to approve the DoD grant, which calls for the California Office of Planning and Research (OPR) to have the college serve as host for the California Community Colleges Small-Business Sector Navigator grant. When it goes into effect, it will pay for 10 regional supply chain workshops and a contract diversification program as part of a DoD Office of Economic Adjustment grant, called the California Advanced Supply Chain Analysis and Diversification Effort, or CASCADE. The purpose is to help businesses that have been adversely affected by reduced Defense Department purchases and contracts to diversify into nondefense opportunities.
