Legal Update Memo No. 10-2022(CC) – Update on Economic Sanctions Notification (CC)

On May 12, 2022, our office issued Legal Update Memo No. 09-2022(CC) concerning the economic sanctions put into place by Governor Gavin Newsom’s Executive Order N-6-22. Since we issued the Legal Update, we have received clarifying information from the Department of General Services (“DGS”) regarding the application of the Executive Order to local educational agencies. According to DGS, local educational agencies were not intended to be included as an “agency or department subject to the Governor’s authority,” as set forth under the Executive Order. Therefore, local educational agencies are not mandated under the Executive Order to provide notice to all current contractors/vendors of their obligations to comply with the existing sanctions.
