The Office of Economic and Workforce Development (OEWD) administers the Local Hiring Policy for Construction.
The San Francisco Board of Supervisors adopted this policy in December 2010. It has since become one of the strongest pieces of legislation in the country to promote the hiring of local residents on locally sponsored projects.
Projects covered by the Local Hiring Policy
Public Works or improvement projects with an engineer's estimate of $600,000 or more and advertised for bid on or after March 25, 2011 are covered by the Local Hiring Policy for Construction.
City-funded construction projects covered by the Policy can be found on the Office of Contracts Administration website.
