The Measure Y Violence Prevention and Public Safety Oversight Committee oversees the proper administration of the revenue collection and spending, and the implementation of the programs funded through Measure Y revenue.  Members are appointed by the Mayor (three appointees) and City Councilmembers (one appointee for each).  This body reviews the annual financial audit, supervises and guides the evaluation and makes policy recommendations and regular reports to the Mayor and City Council.  The committee meets regularly at Oakland City Hall.

Measure Y Evaluation

Measure Y legislation requires a professional of how well policing and violence prevention services are implemented.  Three percent (3%) of the Measure Y funds are dedicated to violence prevention and police services are budgeted for evaluation.  The Oakland City Administrator’s Office oversees the contract administration of the Measure Y evaluation. A collaboration led by  Resource Development Associates and Gibson and Associates won a competitive process to evaluate Measure Y.  You can find their reports on the Evaluation page.

The City Administrator’s Office oversees the coordination of the overall Measure Y implementation. This includes staffing the Oversight Committee and serving as the contract administrator for the Measure Y evaluation.  For more information on Oversight and Evaluation, contact:
