Subject/Title: Authorization to Sign Contract

Submitted by: Jon Elam, City Manager

PREVIOUS ACTION

COMMENTS
While the City of Brentwood has been very successful in securing a range of funding assistance over the past year (per separate Council item) it has not been able to compete very effectively for federal funds.

Recently Mr. Dan Randall from Randall, Funding & Development met with the CIP Sub-Committee (December 22nd, 2000) to discuss his proposal to provide assistance to the City.

Following this discussion the Sub-Committee asked staff to bring this request forward with a request to support the hiring of the Randall firm.

The Randall firm basically serves as a Grant securing resource for many of the Nation’s largest cities. They are a firm of people who specialize in various areas of federal funding and thus all able to focus their clients (Cities) efforts to help them increase their success at securing funds.

They would start by visiting Brentwood and do a Needs Assessment, this would help narrow the range of funding options.

They would them draft up grant proposals (all would be subject to Council approval), do the leg work and then submit them on the City’s behalf. Further details are outlined in the attached material.
