Oakland ID Plan Coming Before the City Council on Tues 10/20!

The Oakland City Council will be discussing and taking action on the Oakland Municipal ID Card implementation plan prepared by City Staff this Tuesday, October 20, 2009 at 7 PM, Oakland City Hall, 1 Frank H. Ogawa Plaza.

This item is #15 on the Agenda which can be found at:
http://clerkwebsvr1.oaklandnet.com/meetings/2009/10/5803_A_Concurrent_Meeting_of_the_Oakland_Redevelopment_Agency___City_Council_09-10-20_Meeting_Agenda.pdf.

The Staff report is also available online at: http://clerkwebsvr1.oaklandnet.com/attachments/23251.pdf.

On October 13, 2009, the Finance and Management Committee received the report and directed Staff to move forward with an expanded RFP (request for proposals) to solicit proposals from:

– banking institutions for the issuance of Oakland’s ID/debit card

–  debit/ID cards systems providers

–  vendors who only provide ID cards systems

Staff was also directed to post the RFP on the City’s website and return by the end of the year with all the bid results and associated costs and fiscal analysis for each service provider’s proposal. The draft RFP will be shared with committee members.

The Coalition has serious concerns about the proposal that is being recommended by the City Staff, including:

1) It may put undocumented people at risk if no other features – such as debit functionality and merchant discounts – are incorporated.

2) If the option is not cost covering, it will cost Oakland taxpayers thousands of dollars and we know that cost covering options are available!

3) The card may cost up to $35 each. This would make the card inaccessible to our low income and no income residents.

The Coalition needs your support! Please join us this Tuesday, October 20 at 7 PM.
