Rescue Union School District

Purchasing

On August 7, 2001, the Rescue Union School District's Board of Trustees passed a resolution to become subject to the California Uniform Public Construction Cost Accounting Act (CUPCCAA) procedures as set forth in Public Contract Code Sections 22030-22045. 

Utilizing CUPCCAA allows local agencies to perform public works projects up to $45,000 with its own work force or by negotiated contract or purchase order. Projects over $45,000 and up to an estimated $175,000 may be let to contract by the informal bidding procedures set forth by the California Public Contract Code. Public Works Projects over $175,000 will be subject to formal bidding procedures.

Department of Industrial Relations (DIR)

Senate Bill 854 requires all contractors and subcontractors meet minimum qualification requirements and register with the Department of Industrial Relations (DIR) in order to be eligible to bid and work on public works projects. Public works refers to construction, alteration, demolition, installation, or repair work (including maintenance) done under contract and paid for by public funds.

As of March 1, 2015, only registered contractors and subcontractors will be eligible to bid on public works projects.

A valid DIR registration ID will be required from contractors and subcontractors prior to the award of any contract dated April 1, 2015 or later.
