Los Angeles school officials are proposing that $33 million in contracts be awarded to a joint venture that was criticized two years ago for letting the management costs for campus repairs soar. In addition, one firm in that joint venture recently was dismissed from a large school modernization job in Maryland amid complaints of lax supervision. Three contracts on the Los Angeles Unified School District board's agenda today would go to the joint venture of 3DInternational Inc. and URS Corp.

Trust us. That's the message at the Los Angeles Unified School District from the people in charge of fixing old schools and building new ones. But trust has to be earned, built on a foundation of full and timely information. District officials flunked that test when they didn't do their homework on 3D/International Inc.--a company recently kicked off a Maryland schools construction project--before asking the school board to pay the firm millions to supervise repair work in Los Angeles.

For four months, the Rose & Kindel lobbying firm had unusual access to Los Angeles Unified School District policymakers: It worked for the school system it also was being paid to lobby. District officials hired Rose & Kindel in March to run a $100,000 campaign to educate voters about a $3.3-billion school construction bond measure on the Nov. 5 ballot. Until last month, the powerful firm also represented construction companies, developers and consultants seeking contracts with the district.
