In keeping with CADA’s values of good stewardship, leadership, collaboration, and effectiveness, a competitive bidding process is utilized for its major contracts. As a general rule, bids must be complete as of the deadline for submitting bids, and bidders cannot correct or furnish information necessary to correct a bid after that time. In some cases bids require a mandatory walk thru (which is indicated in the announcement) in order for contractors to be eligible to submit a bid proposal. CADA awards its contracts to the lowest responsible bidder. The successful contractor typically prepares its bid based on a complete set of plans and specifications that precisely define the facilities to be built and bids are submitted in sealed envelopes so that contractors cannot underbid each other based on what their competitors submit.
In accordance with Sacramento City Code Section 3.60.180 and Section 1782 of the California Labor Code, the payment of the general prevailing rate of per diem wages or the general prevailing rate of per diem wages for holiday and overtime is NOT required for any project of $15,000 or less.
Projects subject to payment of prevailing wage will require evidence of contractor registration with the Department of Industrial Relations for wage monitoring. Failure to submit evidence of current registration will render the bid non-responsive.
