Pre-Qualification Application

Cabrillo College would like to invite new contractors to participate in our Pre-Qualified Contractor program.  Our new application has been modified and streamlined, so it is much easier to complete.  Should not take more than 15 to 20 minutes to complete.

Cabrillo Community College District has elected to adopt the California Uniform Public Construction Cost Accounting Act and invites all interested licensed contractors to submit their company for inclusion on the District’s Informal Bidding Contractors List for the trades they are licensed for.

Current Informal Bid Thresholds:  $45,000 to $175,000 through December 31, 2018.
New Informal Bid Thresholds:  $60,000 to $200,000 beginning January 1, 2019. 

Per California Public Contract Code 22032, any Public Works Project that is estimated to be below $200,000 is subject to the Informal Bidding Procedures set forth by the State of California Uniform Construction Cost Accounting Commission.  All Trade categories are subject to Informal Bidding Procedures.  Contractors that are interested in being on the Informal Bidding Contractors List are required to have a current license and are subject to verification through the Contractors State License Board.  Additionally, pursuant to SB 854 all contractors and subcontractors (listed on a bid) must be registered through the California Department of Industrial Relations (“DIR).

The College will maintain a list of qualified contractors according to the trade categories of work that they perform.  The College may then award contracts between $60,000 and $200,000 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, registered with the Department of Industrial Relations and be selected by the College as qualified.   Qualified contractors would be solicited on each informal bid between $60,000 and $200,000 of the trade categories they select (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 $200,000 would be subject to formal bidding requirements, and would be open to all contractors who meet the qualifications.

Once you are approved to be on our Pre-Qualified Contractor List you will remain on the list until you request to be removed or no longer qualify (Contractor’s License is not renewed, DIR Registration is no longer valid).    

We will be reviewing and approving Pre-Qualification application forms throughout the year.  Please download, complete the application, print, sign and select the trades you are qualified for. Return by US Mail or email per the instructions on the application.

If you have any questions or would like more information please call Gale Stevens at 831-477-5613.
