Cabrillo Pre Qualification Process

Location: Building 2030 (South side of Maintenance)

Phone: 831.479.5095

Hours: Mon. - Fri., 8am - 5pm


Cabrillo College has elected to adopt a provision of Public Contract Code (Section 22003), effectively enabling the College to increase the formal bid limits.  By adopting the Code, the College is now able to award contracts for public works between $30,000 and $125,000 without going through the formal bid process.  The College will maintain a list of qualified contractors according to the categories of work that they perform.  The College may then award contracts between $30,000 and $125,000 to the pre-approved contractor who submits the lowest responsible informal bid.  In order to be eligible to submit an informal bid, a contractor must be on file as a “qualified” contractor.  In order to be “qualified”, a contractor must submit a pre-qualification application and be selected by the College as qualified.   The College will only accept new applications once per year, in January.  Qualified contractors from this list would be solicited on each informal bid between $30,000 and $125,000 (the College would still reserve the right to formally bid a project in this range if desired).  Bid bonds, performance bonds, and payment bonds would continue to be required of all contractors doing work under these provisions. Projects of more than $125,000 would be subject to formal bidding requirements, and would be open to any and all contractors.

The purpose of enacting the changes is (1) to more efficiently and effectively manage small to medium sized projects and (2) provide opportunities for local contractors who are deemed “qualified”.  Many local contractors are strong supporters of Cabrillo College, and the College wants to provide work locally as much as possible.

 All previously approved contractors will remain and continue to be deemed Pre-Qualified until or unless they don’t respond to the Pre-Qualification for 2011 or if they respond, but are not able to meet the Pre-Qualification standards for their trade.
