Public projects of two hundred thousand dollars ($200,000) or less may be let to contract by informal procedures set forth in the Act.

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.

Public projects of two hundred thousand dollars ($200,000) or more require formal bids.

The District may create a new contractor’s list starting January 1st of each year (Public Contract Code 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.
