NOTICE TO GENERAL ENGINEERING, GENERAL BUILDING, AND SUBCONTRACTORS TO PREQUALIFY FOR ELECTRICAL, MECHANICAL OR PLUMBING WORK ON SCHOOL DISTRICT PROJECTS
Notice is hereby given that the Governing Board of the Stockton Unified School District (“District”) has determined that all prime contractors holding A or B licenses, as well as all electrical, mechanical or plumbing contractors holding C-4, C-7, C-10, C-16, C-20, C-34, C-36, C-38, C-42, C-43, and/or C-46 licenses (“MEP Subcontractors”) must be prequalified to bid or to be submitted as a first-tier subcontractor for all District projects using funds received pursuant to the Leroy F. Greene School Facilities Act of 1998 or any funds received, including funds reimbursed, from any future state school bond for a public project.
Any contractor or subcontractor holding the aforementioned licenses interested in submitting a bid or being listed as an MEP Subcontractor by prime contractors must submit fully completed prequalification forms and financial information (“Prequalification Package”) through the District’s online prequalification service. To get started, please visit http://pqbids.com/stockton/ and follow the Contractor Prequalification instructions for creating an account. After creating an account, you will be able to complete and submit the prequalification application online. Contractors who submit a complete Prequalification Package will be notified by e-mail of their qualification status; such notice to be e-mailed no later than ten business days after submission of the information. Prequalification approval will remain valid for one (1) calendar year from the date of a notice of qualification except as noted. Contractors that have previously completed the prequalification process with the District and are currently listed on the Districts list of approved contractors do not need to requalify for this project.
To prequalify, a contractor is required to possess one or more of the aforementioned State of California Contractor Licenses, which must remain active and in good standing throughout the term of the contractor’s prequalification or the term of any awarded contract, whichever is longer. In addition, a contractor is required to be registered as a public works contractor with the Department of Industrial Relations.
For all work performed on District projects, contractors 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 section 1770 et seq. of the California Labor Code.
Prequalification Packages submitted by contractors are not public records and are not open to public inspection. All information provided will be kept confidential to the extent provided by law. The contents, however, may be disclosed to third parties for purposes of verification, or investigation of substantial allegations, or in the appeal process. State law requires that the names of contractors applying for prequalification status shall be public records subject to disclosure.
A contractor may be denied prequalification status for either omission of requested information or falsification of information.
