Public works projects shall be subject to compliance monitoring and enforcement by the Department of Industrial Relations.  For all projects over Twenty-five Thousand dollars ($25,000), a contractor or subcontractor shall not be qualified to submit a proposal or to be listed in a proposal subject to the requirements of Public Contract Code section 4104 unless currently registered and qualified under Labor Code section 1725.5 to perform public work as defined by Division 2, Part 7, Chapter 1 (§§ 1720 et seq.) of the Labor Code.  For all projects over Twenty-five Thousand dollars ($25,000), a contractor or subcontractor shall not be qualified to enter into, or engage in the performance of, any contract of public work (as defined by Division 2, Part 7, Chapter 1 (§§ 1720 et seq.) of the Labor Code) unless currently registered and qualified under Labor Code section 1725.5 to perform public work. 

The Owner will require the successful contractor to achieve the minimum goal of 3% DVBE (Disabled Veteran Business Enterprises) established in the RFP or to provide acceptable evidence of good faith efforts to do so.  The DVBE documents must be sealed and filed in the Business Office of the Owner at the same time the proposal is sealed and filed. 

Pursuant to the Contract Documents, the successful contractor will be required to furnish a Payment (Labor and Material) Bond in the amount of one hundred percent (100%) of the Total Sublease Amount, and a Faithful Performance Bond in the amount of one hundred percent (100%) of the Total Sublease Amount, said bonds to be secured from Admitted Surety insurers (an insurance organization authorized by the Insurance Commissioner to transact business of insurance in the State of California during this calendar year).  The surety insurers must, unless otherwise agreed to by Owner in writing, at the time of issuance of the bonds, have a rating not lower than “A-” as rated by A.M.

The successful contractor will be allowed to substitute securities or establish an escrow in lieu of retainage, pursuant to Public Contract Code Section 22300, and as described in the General Conditions.

The Owner will not consider or accept any proposals from contractors who are not licensed to do business in the State of California, in accordance with the California Public Contract Code, providing for the licensing of contractors.  In accordance with Section 3300 of said Code, the contractor shall have a Class “B” license and shall maintain that license in good standing through Project completion and all applicable warranty periods.  Contractor shall state the California contractor license number, and for all projects over Twenty-five Thousand dollars ($25,000) the public works contractor registration number, on the Designation of Subcontractors form for all subcontractors doing more than one-half of one percent (0.5%) of the contractor’s total proposal, unless otherwise specified in the RFP. 

Subcontractors shall maintain their licenses in good standing through Project completion and all applicable warranty periods.  Owner reserves the right to reject any proposal if contractor or any subcontractor is not licensed in good standing from the time the proposal is submitted to Owner up to award of the Contract, whether or not the contractor listed the subcontractor inadvertently, or if a listed subcontractor’s license is suspended or expires prior to award of the Contract.  Owner also reserves the right to reject any proposal if a listed subcontractor’s license is not in good standing to perform the work for which it is listed from the time of submission of the proposal to award of the Contract.

The Director of Industrial Relations of the State of California, in the manner provided by law, has ascertained the general prevailing rate of per diem wages and rate for legal holidays and overtime work.  The Contractor must pay for any labor therein described or classified in an amount not less than the rates specified.  Copies of the required rates are on file at the Owner’s business office and are available to any interested party on request.
