2018 Pre-Qualified Contractor Program

2018 Pre-Qualified Contractors 08/10/18 2018 List begins January 1, 2018 through December 31, 2018


 Please call Gale Stevens @ 831-477-5613 or 831-479-5764 with any questions.  There is no deadline for new applications, we have an ongoing approval and add contractors throughout the year.

The Pre-Qualified Contractors List is used to solicit bids under the Informal Bid Process for projects between Forty-Five Thousand Dollars ($45,000) and One Hundred Seventy-Five Thousand Dollars ($175,000).

Pre-Qualification Application

Cabrillo College has elected to adopt a provision of Public Contract Code (Section 22003), enabling the College to increase the informal

bid limits.  By adopting the Code, the College is now able to award contracts for public works between $45,000 and $175,000 without

going through the formal bid process.  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

$45,000 and $175,000 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.   Qualified contractors would be solicited on each informal bid between $45,000 and $175,000 (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 $175,000 would

be subject to formal bidding requirements, and would be open to all contractors.

SB 854 bill was signed into law on June 20, 2014 and became effective immediately.  Cabrillo College requires all contractors who submit a 2018 Pre-Qualification application to be registered with the Department of Industrial Relations.


The purpose of enacting the changes is (1) to more efficiently and effectively manage small to medium sized projects and (2) provide opportunities for  contractors who are deemed “qualified”. 


We will be reviewing and approving Pre-Qualification application forms throughout the year.  Please download, complete the application in full and submit as outlined in the Informal Bidding, Qualifications

Application Instructions.

Please email or send your applications through the U.S. Mail to Gale Stevens, Purchasing Department. If you email your application it must have an original signature that is scanned. 

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