BACKGROUND:
On February 1, 2022, the City Council approved to implement the Community Workforce Agreement (CWA) for a five-year term between the City of Costa Mesa (City) and the Los Angeles / Orange Counties Building and Construction Trades Council (Trades Council). The goal of the CWA, also referred to as the Project Labor Agreement (PLA), is to develop opportunities for qualified locally hired individuals and veterans for construction of the City's various Capital Improvement Program (CIP) projects. The aim is to promote efforts and to increase employment opportunities for residents of Costa Mesa and to facilitate training and employment for the City's students and veterans in the construction trades through apprenticeships and to encourage efficiency of construction operations performed by the City. The agreement was fully executed on August 23, 2022.

In order to efficiently and properly administer the CWA, the City has elected to employ the services of a professional consultant who is well versed in the execution and administration of labor agreements. Public Works, along with Finance staff, advertised and released a Request for Proposals (RFP) to select a qualified consultant to administer the City's CWA.
