Notice to Construction Contractors

The Peralta Community College District (“District”) adopted the California Uniform Public Construction Cost Accounting Act (CUPCCAA.) This applies to public works projects that result in contracts awarded from $60,000 to $200,000. Projects estimated to be within the lower and upper value will be informally bid and qualified contractors from this list will be notified by email for an invitation to submit. Reference to the Act can be found here: Law section (

Public works projects estimated up to $59,000 may be performed either by the District’s employees (force account) or by negotiating a contract that is secured by a purchase order for payment.

Public works projects estimated at and over $200,000 require the District to use its formal bidding process.

During November of each year, Quality Bidders shall on behalf of the District, mail, email, or fax as applicable a notice to all construction trade journals inviting all licensed contractors to submit the name of their firm for inclusion on the District’s list of qualified bidders for the year.

The District may create a new contractor’s list starting January 1st of each year (PCC §22036.) The Peralta Community College District may include any contractor’s name it desires on the bidders list but must include, at a minimum, all contractors who have properly provided the District with the required information, either during the calendar year in which the list is valid or during November or December of the prior year. The list will automatically include all contractors who submitted one or more bids to the District during the preceding year. A contractor may have their firm added to the contractors list at any time by providing the required information.
