SUBJECT: title
Agreement with DLG Accounting Advisory Services

This Executive Communication requests approval of a contract with DLG Accounting Advisory Services for the purpose of complying with the Stipulated Order Establishing an External Force Investigation Team, issued by the judge on February 26, 2021 in the case of United States v. City of Albuquerque, 14-cv-1025 [Doc. 720]. The court order "requires the City to establish, on a temporary basis, an External Force Investigation Team (EFIT) to assist the Albuquerque Police Department (APD) in conducting investigations of Level 2 and Level 3 uses of force by APD officers, while also assisting APD with improving the quality of its own Internal Affairs (IA) force investigations." (Doc. 720, p. 1).
DLG will serve as the External Force Investigation Team (EFIT) Administrator to: respond to use of force investigations; assist and advise APD's Internal Affairs Force Investigators conducting the investigations and take over investigations when required; and perform other duties as required by the Stipulated Order.
In order to select the EFIT Administrator, APD issued a Request for Letters of Interest. Four entities applied. Two of the entities were determined to not meet the requirements of the Stipulated Order. The other two were interviewed and feedback was solicited from the Department of Justice and Independent Monitor. Based on the applications and interviews, this contractor was determined to be the best fit for APD.

The amount of the contract is $2,713,312.50 for one year.

APD requests your acceptance of this Executive Communication.
