On January 26, 1999, the Oakland City Council passed Resolution No. 74762 authorizing the City Manager to establish a pilot project creating the City of Oakland Apprenticeship Workforce Partnership System (OAWDPS) in order to increase Oakland resident participation as apprentices on Public Works and Redevelopment Agency construction projects. The policy will be implemented for all projects that begin the bid process after February 15, 2000.

Effective May 30, 2000, the Oakland City Council authorized the City Manager to include the incentive and punitive guidelines with the 15% Apprenticeship policy.
