Pre-Qualification for Lease-Leaseback Projects
Pursuant to Education Code section 17406 and Public Contract Code section 20111.6, all prime contractors (referred to herein as "Developers") for District lease-leaseback projects must be prequalified. Any contractor interested in being prequalified as a developer for District lease-leaseback projects must submit fully completed and sealed prequalification forms and financial information ("Prequalification Package") to the District.
To prequalify, a developer is required, in addition to other criteria, to possess an applicable State of California Contractor License, which must remain active and in good standing throughout the term of the developer's prequalification or the term of any awarded contract, whichever is longer. In addition, a developer is required to be registered as a public works contractor with the Department of Industrial Relations.
For all work performed on District projects, developers shall pay all workers not less than the general prevailing rate of per diem wages and the general prevailing rate for holiday and overtime work as determined by the Director of the Department of Industrial Relations, State of California, for the type of work performed and the locality in which the work is to be performed within the boundaries of the District, pursuant to sections 1770 et seq. of the California Labor Code.
Prequalification Packages submitted by developers are not public records and are not open to public inspection. All information provided will be kept confidential to the extent permitted by law. The contents, however, may be disclosed to third parties for purpose of verification, or investigation of substantial allegations, or in the appeal process. State law requires that the names of developers applying for prequalification status shall be public records subject to disclosure.
A developer may be denied prequalification status for omission of requested information or falsification of information.
