Public Works Projects


Per Senate Bill 854, 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.

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. 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.

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.
