SUSD Prequalification and CUPCCAA

Pre-Qualification

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

  • 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.

CUPCCA (informal bidding)

(a)Public projects of sixty thousand dollars ($60,000) or less may be performed by the employees of a public agency by force account, by negotiated contract, or by purchase order. (b) Public projects of two hundred thousand dollars ($200,000) If all bids received are in excess of two hundred thousand dollars ($200,000), (c) the governing body of the public agency may, by the adoption of a resolution by a four-fifths vote, award the contract, at two hundred twelve thousand five hundred dollars ($212,500) or less, to the lowest responsible bidder, if it determines the cost estimate of the public agency was reasonable.

SUSD has contracted with Colbi Technologies to provide a web-based process for submitting to their Pre-Qualification and CUPCCAA lists called Quality Bidders. To get started, visit our Quality Bidders page.

Please contact Shellie Gibson with any questions by email or at (661) 294-5300.  You may also contact qbsupport@colbitech.com with any questions about the use of the Quality Bidders web-based tool.
