Download pdf: 09-2022(CC) – Economic Sanctions Notification (LWS)

On March 4, 2022, Governor Gavin Newsom issued Executive Order N-6-22 (“EO”)[1] regarding economic sanctions in response to the Russian invasion in Ukraine. The EO directs all agencies and departments that are subject to the Governor’s authority, including all local educational agencies, to take certain immediate steps, including notifying all current contractors/vendors of their obligation to comply with existing economic sanctions imposed by the U.S. government in response to Russia’s actions in Ukraine, as well as any sanctions imposed under California law. The EO required that notice be provided no later than April 18, 2022.

In light of this directive, it is recommended that local educational agencies provide the required notice, via mail or email, to all current contractors and vendors as soon as possible using the attached Department of General Services template notification.[2] In addition, it is recommended that the notice be posted on the local educational agency’s website.
