The Council File Management System(CFMS) is your on-line access to a comprehensive file index and management system, with summary and detail of all legislation considered and/or acted upon by the Los Angeles City Council. The electronic CFMS contains all records of legislation, commendatory resolutions, results of City Council votes, and scanned documents and reports filed in the City Council's files.
You can perform searches for Council Files, view file activity and related documents. The CFMS contains Council files dating back to the year 1979. Council files from 1940 to 1979 can be access online via Council Indexes. The City Archives (Office of the City Clerk Records Management Center) stores the handwritten and typed Council Files dating from 1850 to 1979 and can be accessed through a written request to the City Clerk.
Important Search note: Only the first 100 Council files that match your search criteria will be displayed in the search results listing. Use the most unique information you have about the Council file to narrow your search. Search results are sorted by "relevance ranking". Rather than a single text index the search tool uses multiple indexes and combines them into a master index. It also uses synonym or word-like search functionality, for example, when searching for the word "car" the index may return documents with words such as automobile or vehicle, etc.
The Contract Search System, formerly part of the Council File Index (CFI) system, is your on-line access to all contracts that are submitted to the City Clerk's office including contract summary information, action history as well as scanned contracts.
You can perform searches for contracts by contract number or contracts beginning with a specific sequence of numbers. If you don't know the contract number you can also perform a search by keyword or phrase, which will display any records that contain the word or phrase you are searching for.
Please note that although the contract system does include scanned contracts, the contracts themselves are not searchable in this system.
Important Search note: Only the first 100 contracts that match your search criteria will be displayed in the search results listing. Use the most unique information you have about the contract you are looking for to narrow your search results.
The Ordinance Search is an index to all City of Los Angeles Ordinances adopted since 1979. If you fail to find an ordinance here, then also search the Council File Index and the City Codes (Municipal and Administrative) at www.lacity.org
Important Search note: Only the first 100 Ordinance file that match your search criteria will be displayed in the search results listing. Use the most unique information you have about the Ordinance file to narrow your search.
