LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 76, Committee on Budget. State government.
(1) Existing law, the California Private Postsecondary Education Act of 2009, provides, among other things, for student protections and regulatory oversight of private postsecondary institutions in the state. The act is enforced by the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education within the Department of Consumer Affairs. The act exempts specified institutions, including institutions accredited by certain federally recognized accrediting agencies and institutions accredited by a regional accrediting agency, from its provisions, and is repealed on January 1, 2015.
This bill would authorize certain institutions, which are otherwise exempt from the requirement in the act that they obtain approval to operate from the bureau, to apply to the bureau for an approval to operate under the act. The bill would specify the authority of the bureau with regard to those institutions and would provide that, upon being issued an approval to operate, those institutions would be subject to the act and regulations adopted pursuant to the act. The bill would require these institutions to report certain placement and salary or wage data to the bureau and provide certain information to prospective students. This bill would provide that an institution that was approved to operate by the bureau before its effective date shall be deemed to have been approved pursuant to the bill’s provisions. All of these provisions would be repealed on January 1, 2015, as part of the act.
(2) The California Constitution authorizes the Legislature, at any time after the approval by the voters of a law authorizing the issuance of bonded indebtedness, to reduce the amount of the indebtedness authorized by the law to an amount not less than the amount contracted at the time of the reduction.
This bill would reduce the amount of bonded indebtedness authorized by the Public Education Facilities Bond Act of 1996 by $12,965,000.
(3) Existing law, the California Public Records Act (CPRA), requires state and local agencies to make public records available upon receipt of a request that reasonably describes an identifiable record not otherwise exempt from disclosure, upon the payment of fees to cover costs.
This bill would, commencing on the effective date of this bill, make compliance with certain provisions of the CPRA, which among other things relate to the delivery of electronic data, optional for local agencies. The bill would encourage local agencies to follow these provisions as “best practices” and would require a local agency that determines that it will not follow these best practices to so announce orally at its next regularly scheduled public meeting and annually thereafter. By requiring this announcement, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
Existing constitutional provisions require that a statute that limits the right of access to the meetings of public bodies or the writings of public officials and agencies be adopted with findings demonstrating the interest protected by the limitation and the need for protecting that interest.
This bill would make legislative findings to that effect.
The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.
This bill would provide that, if the Commission on State Mandates determines that the bill contains costs mandated by the state, reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to these statutory provisions.
(4) Existing law authorizes the Director of General Services to purchase, exchange, or otherwise acquire real property and construct facilities, including any improvements, betterments, and related facilities, within the jurisdiction of the Capital Area Plan in the City of Sacramento and authorizes the State Public Works Board to issue up to $391,000,000 in revenue bonds, negotiable notes, or negotiable bond anticipation notes to finance the costs associated with the acquisition, design, and construction of office and parking facilities in the Capital Area Plan.
This bill would repeal this authority given to the Director of General Services and the State Public Works Board.
(5) Existing law creates within state government the Commission on the Status of Women and Girls. Existing law requires the commission to act as an information center on the status of women and women’s educational, employment, and other related needs.
This bill would create a fund in the State Treasury to carry out these provisions.
(6) Existing law, the California Disaster Assistance Act, establishes, until January 1, 2014, the Disaster Response-Emergency Operations Account in the Special Fund for Economic Uncertainties and continuously appropriates its revenue for allocation by the Director of Finance to state agencies for disaster response operation costs incurred as a result of a proclamation by the Governor of a state of emergency.
This bill would extend the termination date for these provisions until January 1, 2019, and would thereby make an appropriation by extending the time during which funds are continuously appropriated from the account.
(7) The California Victim Compensation and Government Claims Board administers a program to assist state residents to obtain compensation for their pecuniary losses suffered as a direct result of criminal acts. Payment is made under these provisions from the Restitution Fund, which is continuously appropriated to the board for these purposes.
This bill would authorize the board, as specified, to administer a program to award, upon appropriation by the Legislature, up to $2,000,000 in grants, annually, to trauma recovery centers, as defined, funded from the Restitution Fund.
(8) Existing law authorizes a state agency to furnish services, materials, or equipment to, or perform work for, any other state agency upon terms and conditions and for such consideration as they may determine, and to enter into agreements for that purpose, subject to approval of the Director of General Services. Existing law requires a state agency that furnishes the services, materials, or equipment to, or performs the work for, the other state agency to compute charges in a manner approved by the Director of Finance.
This bill would authorize the Department of Finance to furnish services to, or provide work for, any other state agency, as requested by the state agency, the Governor, or the Legislature, or as otherwise needed or directed, which agreement would not require approval by the Director of General Services. The bill would require the department to charge the state agency an amount sufficient to recover the costs of furnishing services to, or the work performed for, the state agency, and would require the Controller to transfer to the department the amount of the charge for services rendered or the work performed from the state agency’s support appropriation to the appropriation for the support of the department, as specified.
(9) Existing law governing the acquisition of information technology goods and services requires all contracts for the acquisition of information technology goods and services, whether by lease or purchase, to be made under the supervision of the Department of General Services. Existing law requires procedures developed by the Department of General Services to provide for, among other things, the expeditious and value-effective acquisition of information technology goods and services to satisfy state requirements and the acquisition of information technology goods and services within a competitive framework. Existing law requires the Department of General Services to maintain, in the State Administrative Manual, policies and procedures governing the acquisition and disposal of information technology goods and services. Existing law requires the acquisition of information technology goods and services to be conducted through competitive means, except when the Director of General Services makes specified determinations. Under existing law, the Regents of the University of California, the Trustees of the California State University, and the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges are not subject to those provisions governing the acquisition of information technology goods and services, except that the board is required to adopt policies and procedures that further the legislative policies of those provisions.
This bill would establish the Golden State Financial Marketplace Program or GS $Mart Program (program). The bill would authorize the Department of General Services to structure, administer, and maintain the program, the state’s centralized financing program available for state agencies to finance certain goods and services, as described. The bill would make state agencies, defined to include every state office, officer, department, division, bureau, board, and commission and the California State University and the Regents of the University of California, eligible to apply to the program in order to enter into agreements for financing those specified assets, including, but not limited to, energy efficiency measures, energy savings contracts, or technology goods or services, without further competitive bidding. The bill would also authorize state agencies to refinance any eligible asset through the program for various purposes. The bill would require the Department of General Services to develop a financing process for the program that requires, among other things, confirmation that the term of financing shall be limited to the average expected economic life of the asset or assets and the preparation and submission of payment schedules to the Controller for use by the Controller in transferring funds appropriated in the annual Budget Act to a state agency participating in the program for payments due under the financing program. The bill would authorize the Controller to direct the transfer of funds according to the schedule or schedules submitted by the Department of General Services pursuant to the program. This bill would require the Department of General Services to annually provide a report to the Joint Legislative Budget Committee, the State Treasurer’s Office, and the Department of Finance to include specified information, including the total amount of outstanding GS $Mart loans.
(10) Existing law authorizes the State Personnel Board to conduct an audit of an appointing authority’s personnel practices to ensure compliance with the civil service laws and board regulations, including selection and examination procedures, appointments, promotions, the management of probationary periods, personal services contracts, discipline and adverse actions, or any other area related to the operation of merit principle in state civil service. Existing law requires the board to recover the cost of any audit or investigation from the audited department.
This bill would delete that cost recovery provision, and, instead, require the board to determine costs associated with the board’s audit and special investigative authority and recover costs by billing appointing authorities in accordance with prescribed procedures. This bill would require the Controller to transfer to the board any moneys owed to the board by any appointing authority under these provisions. The bill would require the board to report annually on its audit and special investigation activities pursuant to the bill from the preceding fiscal year to the Chairperson of the Joint Legislative Budget Committee.
(11) Existing law authorizes the board to hold hearings and make investigations concerning all matters relating to the enforcement and effect of the State Civil Service Act, as specified, and to determine and recover the attendant costs.
This bill would require the Controller to transfer to the board any moneys owed to the board by any state agency or department for charges determined by the board.
(12) Existing law establishes the Department of Human Resources in state government to operate the state civil service system in accordance with Article VII of the California Constitution, the Government Code, the merit principle, and applicable rules duly adopted by the State Personnel Board. Existing law requires that civil service positions be filled by appointment, except as provided.
This bill would require the Department of Human Resources to submit reports to the Joint Legislative Budget Committee and certain fiscal committees of the Legislature, by November 30, 2013, and November 30, 2014, regarding additional appointments held by state employees, as specified. The bill would also require, by November 30, 2013, the State Personnel Board to submit a report to the Joint Legislative Budget Committee and certain fiscal committees of the Legislature regarding the policies and practices included in the Personnel Management Policy and Procedures Manual, as specified.
(13) Existing law provides for the California Earthquake Authority (CEA) governed by a 3-member governing board consisting of the Governor, the Treasurer, and the Insurance Commissioner. The Speaker of the Assembly and the Chairperson of the Senate Committee on Rules serve as nonvoting, ex officio members of the board. The CEA is vested with certain powers and duties, including, but not limited to, the authorization to employ a maximum of 25 people subject to civil service provisions.
This bill would remove the limit on the number of people, subject to civil service provisions, that the CEA can employ.
(14) Existing law provides for the establishment and operation of cities, counties, cities and counties, districts, and other local government agencies, the composition of their governing bodies, and the compensation of the members of those governing bodies.
Existing law, for certain of those local agencies, requires that the members be compensated for their services, be reimbursed for their expenses, or both.
This bill would recast those provisions to, instead, authorize the members of local agency governing boards to receive compensation or reimbursement. The bill would declare that, notwithstanding any other law, any statute that requires that a governing board member of a local agency receive compensation, or be reimbursed for expenses, for services as a board member, shall, instead be construed to confer upon the local agency the discretion to authorize, by ordinance or resolution, compensation or reimbursement as otherwise set forth in the statute.
(15) Existing law establishes a return-to-work program, administered by the Department of Industrial Relations, to make supplemental payments to workers whose permanent disability benefits are disproportionately low in comparison to their earnings loss. Existing law appropriates $120,000,000 per year to fund this program.
This bill would specify that the moneys remain available for use by the program without respect to fiscal year and that the program applies only to injuries that occur on or after January 1, 2013.
(16) Existing law creates the Occupational Safety and Health Fund (OSHF) as a special account in the State Treasury, and authorizes the expenditure of moneys in the account by the Department of Industrial Relations, upon appropriation by the Legislature, for support of the Division of Occupational Safety and Health, the Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board, and the Occupational Safety and Health Appeals Board, and the activities these entities perform as set forth in existing law. Existing law creates the Labor Enforcement and Compliance Fund (LECF) as a special account in the State Treasury and authorizes the expenditure of moneys in the account by the department, upon appropriation by the Legislature, for the support of specified activities that the Division of Labor Standards Enforcement performs. Existing law requires the Director of Industrial Relations to impose separate surcharges on employers for purposes of deposit in the OSHF and LECF and establishes $52,000,000 and $37,000,000 revenue caps for those surcharges, respectively, to be adjusted as prescribed. The provisions for the LECF, and the OSHF revenue cap, become inoperative on July 1, 2013.
This bill would increase those revenue caps to $57,000,000 for the OSHF, to be adjusted as prescribed, and $46,000,000 for the LECF, to be adjusted as prescribed. The bill would delete that July 1, 2013, inoperative provision, thereby making the provisions for the LECF, and the OSHF revenue cap, operative indefinitely.
Existing law establishes the Cal-OSHA Targeted Inspection and Consultation Fund (TICF) as a special account in the State Treasury, and authorizes the expenditure of moneys in the account by the department, upon appropriation by the Legislature, for the costs of a Cal-OSHA targeted inspection program and a Cal-OSHA targeted consultation program. Existing law requires the director to levy and collect assessments as prescribed to produce revenue sufficient to fund those programs.
This bill would make the TICF inoperative on June 30, 2014, and repeal that fund as of January 1, 2015. The bill would require any moneys in the TICF on the effective date of the bill, less $5,000,000, to be deposited in the OSHF, and, effective June 30, 2014, the remaining balance in that fund, to be transferred to, and become part of, the OSHF. The bill would require, for the 2013–14 fiscal year only, the OSHF revenue cap to be reduced by an amount equivalent to the balance transferred from the TICF, less any amount of that balance loaned to the State Public Works Enforcement Fund.
Existing law creates the State Public Works Enforcement Fund as a special fund in the State Treasury, and requires all moneys in the fund to be continuously appropriated to the Department of Industrial Relations, to monitor and enforce compliance with the applicable prevailing wage requirements on public works projects paid for in whole or part out of public funds that are derived from bonds issued by the state, and on other projects for which the department provides prevailing wage monitoring and enforcement activities and for which it is to be reimbursed by the awarding body, as provided.
This bill would appropriate for transfer by the State Controller upon order by the Department of Finance from the TICF a loan to the State Public Works Enforcement Fund. Because the State Public Works Enforcement Fund is a continuously appropriated fund, this transfer would make an appropriation. This bill would require the loan to be repaid to the OSHF by June 15, 2015, with interest, as calculated.
(17) Under existing law, a person without a valid state contractor’s license who employs a worker to perform services for which such a license is required is subject to a specified civil penalty. Civil penalties collected pursuant to these provisions are required to be deposited in the Industrial Relations Construction Industry Enforcement Fund to be used, upon appropriation by the Legislature, for the purpose of enforcing these provisions relating to prohibited employment by unlicensed contractors.
This bill would, as of July 1, 2013, eliminate the Industrial Relations Construction Industry Enforcement Fund, and direct the civil penalties to be deposited in the Labor Enforcement and Compliance Fund, a special fund used for, among others, the purpose of enforcing the provisions relating to prohibited employment by unlicensed contractors. The bill would also provide for the transfer of the remaining balance, assets, liabilities, revenue, and expenditures of the Industrial Relations Construction Industry Enforcement Fund to the Labor Enforcement and Compliance Fund.
(18) Existing law requires the Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board to, no later than July 1, 1992, adopt specified process safety management standards for prescribed petroleum refineries, chemical plants, and other manufacturing facilities. The law requires certain employers to establish and implement an emergency action plan unless a prescribed business plan for emergency response meets the standards established by the board.
Existing law, notwithstanding the availability of federal funds, authorizes the Division of Occupational Safety and Health to fix and collect reasonable fees for consultation, inspection, adoption of standards, and other duties conducted pursuant to these provisions and, upon appropriation by the Legislature, authorizes expenditure of those fees for these purposes.
This bill would, instead, require the board to adopt these regulations and fees by March 31, 2014. The bill would require that the annual fees be sufficient to support, at a minimum, 15 positions.
This bill would require that the fees be deposited into the Occupational Safety and Health Fund.
(19) Existing law, the Displaced Janitor Opportunity Act, requires contractors and subcontractors, as defined, that are awarded contracts or subcontracts to provide janitorial or building maintenance services at a particular job site or sites, to retain, for a period of 60 days, certain employees who were employed at that site by the previous contractor or subcontractor. The act also requires that employees retained for that 60-day period be offered continued employment if their performance during that 60-day period is satisfactory. The act authorizes an employee who was not offered employment or who has been discharged in violation of these provisions by a successor contractor or successor subcontractor, or an agent of the employee, to bring an action against a successor contractor or successor subcontractor in any superior court of the state having jurisdiction over the successor contractor or successor subcontractor, as specified.
This bill would, until December 31, 2014, apply the provisions of the Displaced Janitor Opportunity Act to every contractor, as defined, that provides food and beverage services at a publicly owned entertainment venue, as defined.
(20) Existing law defines the term “public works” for purposes of requirements regarding the payment of prevailing wages, the regulation of working hours, and the securing of workers’ compensation for public works projects.
Existing law authorizes the awarding body for a public works project to not require the payment of the general prevailing rate of per diem wages on public works projects of specified sizes and types of work, if, among other things, the awarding body elects to reimburse the Department of Industrial Relations for the cost of monitoring and enforcing compliance with prevailing wage requirements for every public works project of the awarding body. Under existing law, the department is required to determine the rate of reimbursement the department will charge an awarding body for the costs of those monitoring and enforcement services, which may not exceed 1/4 of 1% of the total public works project costs.
This bill would delete that limitation on the amount the department may charge an awarding body as reimbursement for those costs.
Under existing law, the Department of Industrial Relations is required to monitor and enforce compliance with applicable prevailing wage requirements for any public works project paid for in whole or in part out of public funds that are derived from bonds issued by the state. The department is required to charge the awarding body for the reasonable and directly related costs of monitoring and enforcing compliance with the prevailing wage requirements on each project. Under existing law, the department, with approval of the Director of Finance, is required to determine the rate of reimbursement the department will charge an awarding body for the costs of those monitoring and enforcement services, which may not exceed 1/4 of 1% of the state bond proceeds used for the public works project.
This bill would delete that limitation on the amount the department may charge an awarding body as reimbursement for those costs, and instead limit the amount of bond funds utilized by an awarding body to pay the department’s fee to 1/4 of 1% of the state bond proceeds used for the public works project. This bill would require the remaining costs of monitoring and enforcing compliance to be paid from other funds authorized to be used to finance the project.
This bill would require the department to annually provide specified information to assist an awarding body to reasonably estimate the annual cost of monitoring and enforcing compliance.
Money that is collected by the department for the cost of monitoring and enforcing compliance for those public works projects is deposited into the State Public Works Enforcement Fund, a continuously appropriated fund.
By increasing the amount of fees that would be deposited into the fund, this bill would make an appropriation.
(21) Existing law requires that a county that provides emergency services to provide deaf teletype equipment at a central location within the county to relay requests for the emergency services.
This bill would state that a county is encouraged to provide deaf teletype equipment in order to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act and other applicable federal provisions.
(22) Existing law requires a court to require a probation officer to prepare a written probation report when a person is convicted of a felony and is eligible for probation. Existing law requires the probation officer to include a recommendation in the report of the amount the defendant may be required to pay as a restitution fine and whether the court shall require restitution to the victim or the Restitution Fund as a condition of probation.
This bill would instead provide that a probation officer may include these provisions in his or her probation report.
(23) Existing law requires every law enforcement agency that employs peace officers that are required to meet the training standards prescribed by the Emergency Medical Services Authority for the administration of first aid and cardiopulmonary resuscitation to provide each of these peace officers an appropriate portable manual mask and airway assembly for use when applying cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
This bill would instead provide that a law enforcement agency may provide these masks and airway assemblies to the above-specified peace officers.
(24) Existing law requires every law enforcement agency in the state to adopt written policies and standards for officers’ responses to domestic violence calls, and requires the policies to contain specified provisions, as provided. Existing law requires the policies to be available to the public upon request.
This bill would instead provide that these law enforcement agencies may adopt written policies as a best practice, and would provide that the policies may contain the specified provisions.
(25) Existing law requires law enforcement agencies to maintain a complete and systematic record of all protection orders with respect to domestic violence incidents, and requires that these be used to inform law enforcement officers responding to domestic violence calls of the existence, terms, and effective dates of protection orders in effect.
This bill would instead provide that law enforcement agencies may maintain these records as a best practice, and that they may be used to inform law enforcement officers responding to domestic violence calls of the existence, terms, and effective dates of protection orders in effect.
(26) Existing law requires each law enforcement agency to develop a system for recording all domestic violence-related calls for assistance made to the department, and requires these calls to be supported with a written incident report. Existing law requires that the total number of domestic violence calls be compiled by each law enforcement agency monthly and submitted to the Attorney General. Existing law requires each law enforcement agency to develop an incident report form, as specified.
This bill would instead provide that each law enforcement agency may develop the above system, and that the calls may be supported with a written incident report. The bill would provide that the total number of domestic calls may be compiled, and that each law enforcement agency may develop an incident report form.
(27) Existing law requires that a victim has the right to present a victim impact statement in all juvenile court hearings alleging the commission of any criminal offense. If the victim exercises the right to submit a victim impact statement to a probation officer, existing law requires the probation officer to include the statement in his or her social study.
This bill would instead provide that the probation officer is encouraged to include the statement in his or her social study.
(28) Existing law provides for Department of General Services approval of state agency contracts for services. However, contracts under $75,000 are exempt if a state agency complies with certain requirements.
This bill would increase the exemption amount to apply to those contracts under $150,000.
(29) Existing law authorizes the Department of General Services to maintain, develop, and prescribe procedures and policies for the procurement of information technology for the state, and requires the department to maintain in the State Administrative Manual policies and procedures governing the acquisition and disposal of information technology goods and services. Existing law also authorizes the Department of Technology to, among other duties related to technology services for the state, oversee information technology projects.
This bill would, as of July 1, 2013, realign and modify the duties relating to the procurement of information technology goods and services and information projects between the Department of General Services and the Department of Technology, and exempt the Department of Technology from the Administrative Procedure Act when promulgating rules relating to these duties.
(30) Existing law authorizes the Department of Motor Vehicles, in conjunction with the California Highway Patrol, to design and make available for issuance the California memorial license plate. Existing law requires the revenue from specified fees imposed in connection with the issuance, renewal, transfer, and substitution of California memorial license plates to be deposited in the Antiterrorism Fund within the General Fund, and provides that one-half of the money, upon appropriation by the Legislature, be allocated solely for antiterrorism activities, as provided. Existing law provides that the administering agency shall not use more than 5% of the money appropriated to it from the fund for administrative purposes.
This bill would revise those provisions to prohibit the administering agency, the Office of Emergency Services, from using more than 5% of the money appropriated from the fund for local antiterrorism efforts for administrative purposes. The bill would make additional technical conforming changes.
(31) The Governor’s Reorganization Plan No. 2 of 2012 (GRP No. 2), operative July 1, 2013, generally requires the Office of Emergency Services, rather than the California Emergency Management Agency, to develop and implement the state’s preparedness for emergencies and the Department of Technology, rather than the California Technology Agency or the State Chief Information Officer, to perform specified duties relating to communications technology.
This bill would, on July 1, 2013, enact statutory changes related to the responsibilities of the Office of Emergency Services under GRP No. 2 to perform specified duties related to emergency and public safety communications, and, in this regard, transfer certain duties from the California Emergency Management Agency, the Department of Technology, and the State Chief Information Officer to the Office of Emergency Services. This bill would also enact the Public Safety Communications Act of 2013, and establish the Public Safety Communications Division within the Office of Emergency Services to be under the supervision of a chief.
(32) Existing law creates the Strategic Growth Council, consisting of specified state officers and a public member appointed by the Governor, with specified duties relating to coordination of actions of state agencies relative to improvement of air and water quality, natural resource protection, transportation, and various other matters.
Existing law and the Governor’s Reorganization Plan No. 2 of 2012, effective July 3, 2012, and operative July 1, 2013, assigns and reorganizes the various functions of state government among executive officers and agencies by, among other things, creating the Business, Consumer Services, and Housing Agency headed by a secretary.
This bill would add the Secretary of Business, Consumer Services, and Housing to the council.
(33) This bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately as a bill providing for appropriations related to the Budget Bill.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: YES   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: YES  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 Section 94874.8 is added to the Education Code, to read:

94874.8.
 (a) An institution exempt from all or part of this chapter pursuant to subdivision (i) or (j) of Section 94874 or Section 94874.1 may apply to the bureau for an approval to operate pursuant to this section, but only subject to all of the following provisions:
(1) The bureau may approve the operation of an institution that is exempt from all or part of this chapter as specified above in accordance with the authority granted pursuant to Article 6 (commencing with Section 94885). Upon issuing an approval to operate to an institution pursuant to this section, the bureau is authorized to regulate that institution through the full set of powers granted, and duties imposed, by this chapter, as those powers and duties would apply to an institution that is not exempt from this chapter.

It is the intent of the Legislature that both conditional sentence and probation are authorized whenever probation is authorized in any code as a sentencing option for infractions or misdemeanors.
(b) (1) Except as provided in subdivision (j), if a person is convicted of a felony and is eligible for probation, before judgment is pronounced, the court shall immediately refer the matter to a probation officer to investigate and report to the court, at a specified time, upon the circumstances surrounding the crime and the prior history and record of the person, which may be considered either in aggravation or mitigation of the punishment.
(2) (A) The probation officer shall immediately investigate and make a written report to the court of his or her findings and recommendations, including his or her recommendations as to the granting or denying of probation and the conditions of probation, if granted.
(B) Pursuant to Section 828 of the Welfare and Institutions Code, the probation officer shall include in his or her report any information gathered by a law enforcement agency relating to the taking of the defendant into custody as a minor, which shall be considered for purposes of determining whether adjudications of commissions of crimes as a juvenile warrant a finding that there are circumstances in aggravation pursuant to Section 1170 or to deny probation.
(C) If the person was convicted of an offense that requires him or her to register as a sex offender pursuant to Sections 290 to 290.023, inclusive, or if the probation report recommends that registration be ordered at sentencing pursuant to Section 290.006, the probation officer’s report shall include the results of the State-Authorized Risk Assessment Tool for Sex Offenders (SARATSO) administered pursuant to Sections 290.04 to 290.06, inclusive, if applicable.
(D) The probation officer may also include in the report his or her recommendation of both of the following:

(E) The report shall be made available to the court and the prosecuting and defense attorneys at least five days, or upon request of the defendant or prosecuting attorney nine days, prior to the time fixed by the court for the hearing and determination of the report, and shall be filed with the clerk of the court as a record in the case at the time of the hearing. The time within which the report shall be made available and filed may be waived by written stipulation of the prosecuting and defense attorneys that is filed with the court or an oral stipulation in open court that is made and entered upon the minutes of the court.
(3) At a time fixed by the court, the court shall hear and determine the application, if one has been made, or, in any case, the suitability of probation in the particular case. At the hearing, the court shall consider any report of the probation officer, including the results of the SARATSO, if applicable, and shall make a statement that it has considered the report, which shall be filed with the clerk of the court as a record in the case. If the court determines that there are circumstances in mitigation of the punishment prescribed by law or that the ends of justice would be served by granting probation to the person, it may place the person on probation. If probation is denied, the clerk of the court shall immediately send a copy of the report to the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation at the prison or other institution to which the person is delivered.
(4) The preparation of the report or the consideration of the report by the court may be waived only by a written stipulation of the prosecuting and defense attorneys that is filed with the court or an oral stipulation in open court that is made and entered upon the minutes of the court, except that a waiver shall not be allowed unless the court consents thereto. However, if the defendant is ultimately sentenced and committed to the state prison, a probation report shall be completed pursuant to Section 1203c.
(c) If a defendant is not represented by an attorney, the court shall order the probation officer who makes the probation report to discuss its contents with the defendant.
(d) If a person is convicted of a misdemeanor, the court may either refer the matter to the probation officer for an investigation and a report or summarily pronounce a conditional sentence. If the person was convicted of an offense that requires him or her to register as a sex offender pursuant to Sections 290 to 290.023, inclusive, or if the probation officer recommends that the court, at sentencing, order the offender to register as a sex offender pursuant to Section 290.006, the court shall refer the matter to the probation officer for the purpose of obtaining a report on the results of the State-Authorized Risk Assessment Tool for Sex Offenders administered pursuant to Sections 290.04 to 290.06, inclusive, if applicable, which the court shall consider. If the case is not referred to the probation officer, in sentencing the person, the court may consider any information concerning the person that could have been included in a probation report. The court shall inform the person of the information to be considered and permit him or her to answer or controvert the information. For this purpose, upon the request of the person, the court shall grant a continuance before the judgment is pronounced.

(1) Unless the person had a lawful right to carry a deadly weapon, other than a firearm, at the time of the perpetration of the crime or his or her arrest, any person who has been convicted of arson, robbery, carjacking, burglary, burglary with explosives, rape with force or violence, torture, aggravated mayhem, murder, attempt to commit murder, trainwrecking, kidnapping, escape from the state prison, or a conspiracy to commit one or more of those crimes and who was armed with the weapon at either of those times.

 Section 13701 of the Penal Code is amended to read:

13701.
 (a) As a best practice, every law enforcement agency in this state may develop, adopt, and implement written policies and standards for officers’ responses to domestic violence calls by January 1, 1986. These policies may reflect that domestic violence is alleged criminal conduct. Further, they may reflect existing policy that a request for assistance in a situation involving domestic violence is the same as any other request for assistance where violence has occurred.
(b) As a best practice, the written policies may encourage the arrest of domestic violence offenders if there is probable cause that an offense has been committed. These policies also may require the arrest of an offender, absent exigent circumstances, if there is probable cause that a protective order issued under Chapter 4 (commencing with Section 2040) of Part 1 of Division 6, Division 10 (commencing with Section 6200), or Chapter 6 (commencing with Section 7700) of Part 3 of Division 12, of the Family Code, or Section 136.2 of this code, or by a court of any other state, a commonwealth, territory, or insular possession subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, a military tribunal, or a tribe has been violated. These policies may discourage, when appropriate, but not prohibit, dual arrests. Peace officers may make reasonable efforts to identify the dominant aggressor in any incident. The dominant aggressor is the person determined to be the most significant, rather than the first, aggressor. In identifying the dominant aggressor, an officer may consider the intent of the law to protect victims of domestic violence from continuing abuse, the threats creating fear of physical injury, the history of domestic violence between the persons involved, and whether either person acted in self-defense. These arrest policies may be developed, adopted, and implemented by July 1, 1996. Notwithstanding subdivision (d), law enforcement agencies may develop these policies with the input of local domestic violence agencies.
(c) As a best practice, these existing local policies and those developed may be in writing and, if developed, shall be available to the public upon request and may include specific standards for the following:
(1) Felony arrests.
(2) Misdemeanor arrests.
(3) Use of citizen arrests.
(4) Verification and enforcement of temporary restraining orders when (A) the suspect is present and (B) the suspect has fled.
(5) Verification and enforcement of stay-away orders.
(6) Cite and release policies.
(7) Emergency assistance to victims, such as medical care, transportation to a shelter, or a hospital for treatment when necessary, and police standbys for removing personal property and assistance in safe passage out of the victim’s residence.
(8) Assisting victims in pursuing criminal options, such as giving the victim the report number and directing the victim to the proper investigation unit.
(9) Furnishing written notice to victims at the scene, including, but not limited to, all of the following information:
(A) A statement informing the victim that despite official restraint of the person alleged to have committed domestic violence, the restrained person may be released at any time.
(B) A statement that, “For further information about a shelter you may contact ____.”
(C) A statement that, “For information about other services in the community, where available, you may contact ____.”
(D) A statement that, “For information about the California victims’ compensation program, you may contact 1-800-777-9229.”
(E) A statement informing the victim of domestic violence that he or she may ask the district attorney to file a criminal complaint.
(F) A statement informing the victim of the right to go to the superior court and file a petition requesting any of the following orders for relief:
(i) An order restraining the attacker from abusing the victim and other family members.
(ii) An order directing the attacker to leave the household.
(iii) An order preventing the attacker from entering the residence, school, business, or place of employment of the victim.
(iv) An order awarding the victim or the other parent custody of or visitation with a minor child or children.
(v) An order restraining the attacker from molesting or interfering with minor children in the custody of the victim.
(vi) An order directing the party not granted custody to pay support of minor children, if that party has a legal obligation to do so.
(vii) An order directing the defendant to make specified debit payments coming due while the order is in effect.
(viii) An order directing that either or both parties participate in counseling.
(G) A statement informing the victim of the right to file a civil suit for losses suffered as a result of the abuse, including medical expenses, loss of earnings, and other expenses for injuries sustained and damage to property, and any other related expenses incurred by the victim or any agency that shelters the victim.
(H) In the case of an alleged violation of subdivision (e) of Section 243 or Section 261, 261.5, 262, 273.5, 286, 288a, or 289, a “Victims of Domestic Violence” card which shall include, but is not limited to, the following information:
(i) The names and phone numbers of or local county hotlines for, or both the phone numbers of and local county hotlines for, local shelters for battered women and rape victim counseling centers within the county, including those centers specified in Section 13837, and their 24-hour counseling service telephone numbers.
(ii) A simple statement on the proper procedures for a victim to follow after a sexual assault.
(iii) A statement that sexual assault by a person who is known to the victim, including sexual assault by a person who is the spouse of the victim, is a crime.
(iv) A statement that domestic violence or assault by a person who is known to the victim, including domestic violence or assault by a person who is the spouse of the victim, is a crime.
(10) Writing of reports.
(d) In the development of these policies and standards, each local department is encouraged to consult with domestic violence experts, such as the staff of the local shelter for battered women and their children. Departments may utilize the response guidelines developed by the commission in developing local policies.

(b) The Attorney General shall report annually to the Governor, the Legislature, and the public the total number of domestic violence-related calls received by California law enforcement agencies, the number of cases involving weapons, and a breakdown of calls received by agency, city, and county.
(c) As a best practice, each law enforcement agency may develop an incident report form that includes a domestic violence identification code by January 1, 1986. In all incidents of domestic violence, a report may be written and may be identified on the face of the report as a domestic violence incident. The report may include at least all of the following:
(1) A notation of whether the officer or officers who responded to the domestic violence call observed any signs that the alleged abuser was under the influence of alcohol or a controlled substance.
(2) A notation of whether the officer or officers who responded to the domestic violence call determined if any law enforcement agency had previously responded to a domestic violence call at the same address involving the same alleged abuser or victim.
(3) A notation of whether the officer or officers who responded to the domestic violence call found it necessary, for the protection of the peace officer or other persons present, to inquire of the victim, the alleged abuser, or both, whether a firearm or other deadly weapon was present at the location, and, if there is an inquiry, whether that inquiry disclosed the presence of a firearm or other deadly weapon. Any firearm or other deadly weapon discovered by an officer at the scene of a domestic violence incident shall be subject to confiscation pursuant to Division 4 (commencing with Section 18250) of Title 2 of Part 6.

 Section 12101.5 of the Public Contract Code is amended to read:

12101.5.
 (a) It is the intent of the Legislature that agencies of the state use an acquisition method that is compatible with their short- and long-term fiscal needs in contracts relating to commodities and information technology goods and services. State agencies should be able to specify their anticipated life-cycle requirements that would become one of the criteria for contractor selection. These agencies should be given the choice of suppliers to meet statewide standardization needs, unique service requirements, application requirements, and long-term satisfaction criteria. There is a need for the state to enter into long-term contracts with annual cancellation and fund-out clauses, as required, to protect the state’s interests as well as provide the option for multiyear renewals to encourage suppliers to develop higher levels of service and support throughout the contracts.
(b) The state may utilize multiple awards, including federal General Service Administration Multiple Awards Schedules and master agreements or contracts for goods, information technology, services, or consulting services.

The Department of General Services shall administer this section and ensure that multiple award schedules are in compliance with all other applicable statutes.
(c) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, state agencies, in exercising their contracting authority delegated by the Department of General Services, may contract with suppliers who have multiple award schedules with the General Services Administration of the United States on the same terms, conditions, and prices if the supplier is willing to do so. The Department of General Services may also develop multiple award schedules or agreements for use by state agencies in the same manner. The Department of General Services shall determine the delegation contracting authority for agencies wishing to use multiple award schedules.
(d) For contracts related to information technology integration or development projects that generate revenues or achieve savings over a quantifiable baseline of existing costs, state agencies shall consider and may incorporate performance-based or share-in-savings contract terms to manage risks and create incentives for successful contract performance. Performance-based or share-in-savings contracts may have the following characteristics, among others:
(1) Contract terms that specify business outcomes to be achieved, not the solution to be provided.
(2) Contract terms that structure the contract to maintain maximum vendor commitment to project success and minimize risk to the state by sharing risk with the private sector.
(3) Utilization of “best value” evaluation methods, which means to select the solution that will achieve the best result based on business performance measures, not necessarily the lowest price.
(4) Contract terms that base payments to the vendor primarily on achieving predefined performance measures.

Evaluation criteria for the acquisition of information technology goods and services, including systems integration, shall provide for the selection of a contractor on an objective basis not limited to cost alone.
(1) The Department of Technology shall invite active participation, review, advice, comment, and assistance from the private sector and state agencies in developing procedures to streamline and to make the acquisition process more efficient, including, but not limited to, consideration of comprehensive statements in the request for proposals of the business needs and governmental functions, access to studies, planning documents, feasibility study reports and draft requests for proposals applicable to solicitations, minimizing the time and cost of the proposal submittal and selection process, and development of a procedure for submission and evaluation of a single proposal rather than multiple proposals.
(2) Solicitations for acquisitions based on evaluation criteria other than cost alone shall provide that sealed cost proposals shall be submitted and that they shall be opened at a time and place designated in the solicitation for bids and proposals. Evaluation of all criteria, other than cost, shall be completed prior to the time designated for public opening of cost proposals, and the results of the completed evaluation shall be published immediately before the opening of cost proposals. The state’s contact person for administration of the solicitation shall be identified in the solicitation for bids and proposals, and that person shall execute a certificate under penalty of perjury, which shall be made a permanent part of the official contract file, that all cost proposals received by the state have been maintained sealed and under lock and key until the time cost proposals are opened.
(b) The acquisition of hardware acquired independently of a system integration project may be made on the basis of lowest cost meeting all other specifications.

(d) For all transactions formally advertised, evaluation of bidders’ proposals for the purpose of determining contract award for information technology goods shall provide for consideration of a bidder’s best financing alternatives, including lease or purchase alternatives, if any bidder so requests, not less than 30 days prior to the date of final bid submission, unless the acquiring agency can prove to the satisfaction of the Department of General Services that a particular financing alternative should not be so considered.
(e) Acquisition authority may be delegated by the Director of General Services to any state agency that has been determined by the Department of General Services to be capable of effective use of that authority. This authority may be limited by the Department of General Services. Acquisitions conducted under delegated authority shall be reviewed by the Department of General Services on a selective basis.
(f) To the extent practical, the solicitation documents shall provide for a contract to be written to enable acquisition of additional items to avoid essentially redundant acquisition processes when it can be determined that it is economical to do so.
(g) Protest procedures shall be developed to provide bidders an opportunity to protest any formal, competitive acquisition conducted in accordance with this chapter. The procedures shall provide that protests must be filed no later than five working days after the issuance of an intent to award. Authority to protest may be limited to participating bidders. The Director of Technology, or a person designated by the director, may consider and decide on initial protests of bids for information technology projects conducted by the Department of Technology and telecommunications procurement made pursuant to Section 12120. The Director of the Department of General Services, or a person designated by the director, may consider and decide on initial protests of all other information technology acquisitions. A decision regarding an initial protest shall be final. If prior to the last day to protest, any bidder who has submitted an offer files a protest with the department against the awarding of the contract on the ground that his or her bid or proposal should have been selected in accordance with the selection criteria in the solicitation document, the contract shall not be awarded until either the protest has been withdrawn or the California Victim Compensation and Government Claims Board has made a final decision as to the action to be taken relating to the protest. Within 10 calendar days after filing a protest, the protesting bidder shall file with the Victims Compensation and Government Claims Board a full and complete written statement specifying in detail the grounds of the protest and the facts in support thereof.
(h) Consistent with the procedures established and administered by the Department of General Services, information technology goods that have been determined to be surplus to state needs shall be disposed of in a manner that will best serve the interests of the state. Procedures governing the disposal of surplus goods may include auction or transfer to local governmental entities.
(i) A supplier may be excluded from bid processes if the supplier’s performance with respect to a previously awarded contract has been unsatisfactory, as determined by the state in accordance with established procedures that shall be maintained in the State Administrative Manual. This exclusion may not exceed 36 months for any one determination of unsatisfactory performance. Any supplier excluded in accordance with this section shall be reinstated as a qualified supplier at any time during this 36-month period, upon demonstrating to the Department of General Services’ satisfaction that the problems that resulted in the supplier’s exclusion have been corrected.
