Lease-Leaseback Outreach Program

San Diego Unified is now using this alternative delivery method to address the challenges presented by over 70 complex projects ranging in value from $7 to $120 million. LLB is a method that streamlines complex construction projects and frees up funding.

View and download the Lease-Leaseback Fact Sheet by clicking here. The Lease-Leaseback Fact Sheet summarizes the LLB Program, defines the term Lease-Leaseback, provides networking tips including how to connect with the District's prequalified LLB Prime contractors, and much more.

Contractor Prequalification

All subcontractors are required to be prequalified with San Diego Unified School District for LLB projects in order to bid. See the table below to learn if you need to get prequalified.

Get Connected

San Diego Unified has a robust Business Outreach Program designed to engage local and Emerging Business Enterprises (EBEs) in its construction program.  EBE is an umbrella term that includes woman-owned business enterprises (WBE), minority-owned business enterprises (MBE), disabled-veteran owned businesses (DVB), small business enterprises (SBE) and designations that may fall under each. All LLB projects have EBE goals. If you are a certified EBE, or a business that may be eligible for EBE certification, read on to see how you can become involved in the LLB program.
