OVERVIEW

Committee meetings are held once every 2 months, if possible, but no less than once a quarter on the 4th Thursday of the month. The schedule is posted annually.

ON March 5th, 2002 the San Francisco voters adopted Proposition F, the Citizen Oversight of Bond Expenditures Initiative. The Ordinance established a committee of nine members for the purpose of informing the public concerning the expenditure of general bond proceeds through active review and the publishing of regular reports. The ordinance required that the nine members meet certain minimum qualifications and be appointed as follows: three members by the Mayor, three members by the Board of Supervisors, two members by the Controller and one member by the Civil Grand Jury. Each member serves for a term of two years and may be re-appointed for a second two-year term.

On November 4, 2003, the voters added to the duties of the Committee by approving Proposition C, which requires the Controller to serve as the City Services Auditor. The Ordinance also added to the duties of the Committee by requiring that it serve as a Citizens Audit Review Board. IN this role, the Committee provides advisory input to the Controller on matters set forth in the Ordinance, including requiring that the Committee: 1) review the Controller’s service standards and benchmarks to ensure their accuracy and usefulness; 2) review all audits to assure they meet requirements set forth in the Ordinance; 3) review complaints received through the Controller’s Whistleblower Hotline and their disposition; and 4) when appropriate, hold public hearings regarding the results of benchmark studies and audits.
