The Owner will require the successful Bidder to achieve the minimum goal of 3% DVBE (Disabled Veteran Business Enterprises) established in the bidding documents or to provide acceptable evidence of good faith efforts to do so. The DVBE documents must be sealed and filed in the Business Office of the Owner before April 4, 20221 at which time the bids (including the DVBE forms) will be opened in public.
Bids must be accompanied by a bidder’s bond, cashier’s check, or certified check for at least ten percent (10%) of the amount of the base bid and made payable to the Owner. If a bid bond is used, it must be issued by an Admitted Surety (an insurance organization authorized by the Insurance Commissioner to transact surety insurance in the State of California during this calendar year), which shall be given as a guarantee that the bidder will enter into a Contract if awarded the Work and will be declared forfeited, paid to, or retained by the Owner as liquidated damages if the bidder refuses or neglects to enter into the Contract provided by the Owner after being requested to do so. The surety insurer must, unless otherwise agreed to by Owner in writing, at the time of issuance of the bond, have a rating not lower than as rated by A.M. Best Company, Inc. or other independent rating companies. Owner reserves the right to approve or reject the surety insurer selected by Contractor and to require Contractor to obtain a bond from a surety insurer satisfactory to the Owner.
Bids must be accompanied by an executed Fingerprinting Notice and Acknowledgment.
Pursuant to the Contract Documents, the successful bidder will be required to furnish a Payment (Labor and Material) Bond in the amount of one hundred percent (100%) of the Contract Sum, and a Faithful Performance Bond in the amount of one hundred percent (100%) of the Contract Sum, said bonds to be secured from Admitted Surety insurers (an insurance organization authorized by the Insurance Commissioner to transact business of insurance in the State of California during this calendar year). The surety insurers must, unless otherwise agreed to by Owner in writing, at the time of issuance of the bonds, have a rating not lower than “A-” as rated by A.M.

Owner reserves the right to approve or reject the surety insurers selected by the successful bidder and to require the successful bidder to obtain bonds from surety insurers satisfactory to the Owner. The bidder will be required to furnish insurance as set forth in the Contract Documents.
The successful bidder will be allowed to substitute securities or establish an escrow in lieu of retainage, pursuant to Public Contract Code Section 22300, and as described in the Agreement Between Owner and Contractor and General Conditions.
The Owner will not consider or accept any bids from contractors who are not licensed to do business in the State of California, in accordance with the California Public Contract Code, providing for the licensing of contractors. In accordance with Section 3300 of said Code, the bidder shall have a Class “General Engineering Class A” license and shall maintain that license in good standing through Project completion and all applicable warranty periods. Bidder shall state the California contractor license number on the Designation of Subcontractors form for all subcontractors doing more than one-half of one percent (0.5%) of the bidder’s total bid. An inadvertent error in listing a California contractor’s license number shall not be grounds for filing a bid protest or for considering the bid non-responsive if the bidder submits the corrected contractor’s license number to the Owner within 24 hours after the bid opening, or any continuation thereof, so long as the corrected contractor’s license number corresponds to the submitted name and location for that subcontractor.
Subcontractors shall maintain their licenses in good standing through Project completion and all applicable warranty periods. Owner reserves the right to reject any bid as non-responsive if bidder or any subcontractor is not licensed in good standing from the time the bid is submitted to Owner up to award of the Contract, whether or not the bidder listed the subcontractor inadvertently, or if a listed subcontractor’s license is suspended or expires prior to award of the Contract. Owner also reserves the right to reject any bid as non responsive if a listed subcontractor’s license is not in good standing to perform the work for which it is listed from the time of submission of the bidder’s bid to award of the Contract.
The Director of Industrial Relations of the State of California, in the manner provided by law, has ascertained the general prevailing rate of per diem wages and rate for legal holidays and overtime work. The Contractor must pay for any labor therein described or classified in an amount not less than the rates specified. Copies of the required rates are on file at the Owner’s business office and are available to any interested party on request.
The Owner reserves the right to waive any irregularity and to reject any or all bids
Unless otherwise required by law, no bidder may withdraw its bid for a period of sixty (60) days after the date set for the opening thereof or any authorized postponement thereof. The Owner reserves the right to take more than sixty (60) days to make a decision regarding the rejection of bids or the award of the Contract.
