Purchasing Registration


Senate Bill 854, signed into law June 20, 2014, became effective immediately. It established a new public works contractor registration program which will collect fees to fund compliance monitoring and enforcement, determine prevailing wage and public works coverage, and hear enforcement appeals.

All contractors and subcontractors intending to bid or perform work on public works projects will be required to register, and annually renew, online for the program. The cost to register for the program is currently $300.00 and is non-refundable. This is a DIR fee paid to the State. The District will not register a contractor, nor collect funds.

Contractors or subcontractors submitting bids must be registered by March 1, 2015. The requirement to use only registered contractors and subcontractors on public works projects, greater than $1,000, applies to all projects awarded on or after April 1, 2015. No bid can be accepted nor any contract or subcontract entered into nor purchase order issued without proof that the contractor or subcontractor is registered.

Public works refers to construction, alteration, demolition, installation, or repair work (including maintenance) done under contract and paid by public funds. For a more detailed explanation of public works projects, refer to California Labor Code 1720 -1720.6.

If you intend to bid or provide services on District projects in the future, please ensure you are registered with the DIR prior to March 1, 2015. Effective immediately, the District will be required to fill out a form alerting the DIR of the services you are providing the District. Detailed information is required to complete this form. You may be asked to provide the information needed to complete the DIR form. You will be asked to complete this in a timely manner to avoid interruption in the services you are providing.

More information can be found at The Department of Industrial Relations website.

Note other new additions to Code Section in Construction Manual:
Pre-Qualification (Pub. Cont. Code 20111.6)

The bill requires a school district with ADA over 2,500 to prequalify bidders for construction contracts awarded on or after January 1, 2014 if (1) the contract value is $1,000,000 or more, and (2) the project is funded, in whole or in part, with State bond funds. In addition, the prequalification forms used by the district must cover, at a minimum, the issues covered by the model forms developed by the California Department of Industrial Relations (“DIR”). Section 20111.6 becomes inoperative on January 1, 2019.

Sub-Contractor License AB44
Effective July 1, 2014, AB 44 requires the inclusion of the California contractor license number for each subcontractor submitting a bid or performing work on public works projects.

California Assembly Bill (AB) 1565 went into effect on January 1, 2014. AB 1565 requires ALL General Contractors and M/E/P Subcontractors be prequalified, if the project is valued at $1 million or more and funded whole or in part with State Facility Bond funds

Public Contract Code 20111.5 enables districts to require prime contractors to be prequalified prior to accepting bids.

Public Contract Code 20111.6 requires the district to do so for certain projects. This applies to prime contractors and MEP sub-contractors with the following licenses:

  • General Contractors (A and B), Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing subcontractors (C-4, C-7, C-10, C-16, C-20, C-34, C-36, C-38, C-42, C-43, and C-46)
  • The District must receive complete applications at least ten (10) business days prior to the scheduled bid opening on any advertised project in order for the candidate to qualify for a project in excess of $1,000,000 and partially funded by the State. Pre-qualification approval will remain valid for one (1) calendar year from the date of notice of qualification except as noted in the pre-qualification documents.
