    Using a third party (Oakland Education Fund) to solicit and oversee grant funding is problematic in terms of public transparency of relationship between non-profit Fund that collects a fee for service that funds the non-profits existence. Over use of consultant contracts to care out operations usually handled in-house is criticism of OUSD. Important question is whether or not fee collected by in-house employee would be higher than fee charged by Oakland Education Fund?
