The District has adopted the California Uniform Public Construction Cost Accounting Act (“CUPCCAA”) which governs public works procurement. In accordance with the Act, the District maintains a list of contractors identified according to categories of work.
Once a contractor is established on the District’s Qualified Contractor List, the contractor will be notified of informal bidding projects between $60,000 and $200,000 (effective January 1, 2019). Projects costing over $200,000 are subject to the formal bidding process.
Vendors who are interested in being included on District’s Qualified Contractor list for informal bidding of public works projects should complete this form each calendar year: Informal Bidding Act Contractor Pre-Qualification Application Form
Please keep in mind that it is vendor’s responsibility to provide any updates to vendor address, contact persons, contact information to District to avoid misdirected communication.
For additional information, please contact the Facilities Department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It should be noted that SB 854 became effective July 1, 2014. SB 854 requires contractors to register with the Department of Industrial Relations (DIR) prior to bidding or performing work on public works and/or repair and maintenance projects.
- $25,000 for new construction, alteration, installation, demolition or repair
- $15,000 for maintenance
The completion of the above mentioned Contractor Application Form does not fulfill the DIR requirement. For information regarding SB 854, visit California Department of Industrial Relations: Laws, Regulations, Determinations and Decisions.
