Bid Solicitation

The State of California Public Contract Code section 20651 establishes the bid limit for the purchase of materials, supplies, and services to be furnished, sold or leased.  The limit is subject to change on January 1 of each year.  There are two distinct bid limits based on total contract value:

Effective January 1, 2017 the bid limit is $88,300 and applies to the following items:
  • The purchase of equipment, materials, or supplies to be furnished, sold, or leased to the District.
  • Services, except construction services.
  • Repairs, including maintenance as defined in Public Contract Code Section 20656, that are not a public project as defined in subdivision (c) of Section 22002
  • Effective July 1, 2017, the bid limit threshold is $45,000 for construction contracts under the California Uniform Public Construction Cost Accounting Act (CUPCCAA).  Construction contracts in this category include contracts with the licensed trades to perform construction, reconstruction, alteration, renovation, improvement, demolition, landscaping, voice or data cabling, painting, or repair work involving any publicly owned, leased, or operated facility.

If the total contract value is below the applicable bid limit, then the District Buyer may issue a Purchase Order without conducting an advertised formal competitive bid process.  However, the purchase may be subject to a District purchasing requirement to obtain informal bids or quotations – see the Purchasing Matrix for specific District policies.  Informal bidding promotes open competition and results in reduced acquisition costs which save valuable public resources.
