Pre-Qualification Notice to Contractors

California Assembly Bill (AB) 1565 went into effect on January 1, 2014. AB 1565 requires all general contractors and M/E/P subcontractors 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 the following public contract codes:

  • Public Contract Code 20111.5 enables districts to require prime 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 M/E/P 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)

The district must receive complete applications at least ten (10) business days prior to the scheduled bid opening on any advertised project in order for the candidate to qualify for a project in excess of $1,000,000 and partially funded by the state. Pre-qualification approval will remain valid for one (1) calendar year from the date of notice of qualification except as noted in the pre-qualification documents.
