What is CUPCCAA? 

The California Uniform Public Construction Cost Accounting Act (CUPCCAA) is under the umbrella of the California Uniform Public Construction Cost Accounting Commission and provides for alternative bidding procedures pursuant to public contract code 22000 through 22045 when an agency performs public project work by contract:

(a) Public projects of $45,000 or less may be performed by negotiated contract or by purchase order (PCC22032(a)).
(b) Public projects of $175,000 or less may be let to contract by the informal procedures set forth in the Act (PCC22032(b)).
(c) Public projects of more than $175,000 shall be let to contract by formal bidding procedures (PCC22032(c))

Yuba City Unified School District
has adopted the California Uniform Public Construction Cost Accounting Act (CUPCCAA) and invites all interested licensed contractors to submit their company for inclusion on the District’s Informal Bidding Contractors List for each respective calendar year. NOTE: Companies must resubmit an application each calendar year.

Per California Public Contract Code 22032, any Public Works Project that is estimated to be at or below $200,000 is subject to the Informal Bidding Procedures set forth by the State of California Uniform Construction Cost Accounting Commission. All trade categories are subject to Informal Bidding Procedures. Contractors that are interested in being on the Informal Bidding Contractors List are required to have a current license and are subject to verification through the Contractors State License Board.

Additionally, pursuant to SB 854, no contractor or subcontractor may be listed on a bid or awarded a contract for a public works project unless registered with the Department of Industrial Relations (DIR) per California Labor Code section 1725.5.
