Purchase Order General Terms and Conditions


Contractor Pre-Qualification

Contractors may pre-qualify for both CUPCCAA and AB1565 opportunities by visiting

  • Assembly Bill 2031: AB 2031 went into effect on Jan. 1, 2014. AB 1565 requires ALL Gereral Contractors and M/E/P Subcontractors to be prequalified if the project is valued at $1,000,000 or more and funded whole or in part with State Facility Bond funds per:
  •  Public Contract Code 20111.5 enables districts to require contractors to be prequalified prior to accepting bids.
  • Public Contract Code 20111.6 requires the district to do so for certain projects. This applies to prime contractors and MEP sub-contractors with the following licenses:
  • General Contractors (A and B)
  • Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing subcontractors (C-4, C-7, C-10, C-16, C-20, C-34, C-36, C-38, C-42, C-43, and C-46)

On any advertised project with a pre-qualification requirement, the District must receive complete applications at least ten (10) business days prior to the scheduled bid opening.

Pre-qualification approval will remain valid for one (1) calendar year from the date of notice of qualification.

To become prequalified, applications must be submitted to PQBids. PQBids is an easy-to-use web-based application that streamlines the new Department of Industrial Relations (DIR) prequalification process. Link to PUSD PQBids webpage:

  • CUPCCAA Informal Bid Registration: Bids for informally bid projects are solicited through notices to construction trade journals and/or notices sent to contractors on a list of registered contractors maintained by the district. CUPCCAA is an acronym for California Uniform Public Construction Cost Accounting Act. Since 1983, school districts that adopt CUPCCAA procedures may perform public project work up to $60,000 with their in-house workforce, and informally bid construction projects up to $200,000 to contractors.
