To ensure a level playing field with an open and uniform competitive contracting process, contractors and their representatives must maintain a Cone of Silence from the time when an Invitation for Bid (IFB), Request for Proposal (RFP), Request for Interest and Bid (RFIB), Request for Quote, Request for Qualification, or any other solicitation release is announced until the time a contract award recommendation is made public by the Board Secretariat’s posting of the board report for the contract to be approved.

During the time under the Cone of Silence, Contractors and their Representatives are prohibited from making any contact on any part of a solicitation, negotiation or contract with any LAUSD official as this could appear to be an attempt to curry favor or influence. An “LAUSD official” is broadly defined to include “any board member, employee, consultant or advisory member of LAUSD” who is involved in making recommendations or decisions for LAUSD.

The following solicitations are currently under the Cone of Silence. For more information regarding the Contractor's Code of Conduct, please
