Background:

The Los Gatos-Saratoga Union High School District’s governing board has elected to become subject to the Uniform Public Construction Cost Accounting Act (CUPCCAA).

The Act provides for alternative bidding procedures when an agency performs public project work by contract.

Public works is defined as construction, alteration, demolition, installation, or repair work done in whole or in part out of public funds.

(a) Public projects of $45,000 or less may be performed by negotiated contract or by purchase order (PCC 22032(a)).

(b) Public projects of $175,000 or less may be let to contract by the alternative bidding procedures set forth in the Act (PCC 22032(b)).

(c) Public projects of more than $175,000 shall be let to contract by formal bidding procedures (PCC 22032(c)).

The Act provides for the District to establish a list of qualified contractors, identified by work category, to be notified of potential projects and procedures for informal bidding.

The district has elected to use Quality Bidders to add contractors to the District’s CUPCCAA list. Please go to https://www.qualitybidders.com/pages/contractor to register.
