California Uniform Public Construction Cost Accounting Act (CUPCCAA)

The District has adopted the California Uniform Public Construction Cost Accounting Act (CUPCCAA), which governs public works procurements. In accordance with the Act, the District maintains a list of contractors identified according to categories of work. Once a contractor is established on District's Qualified Contractor List, the contractor will be notified of informal bidding projects between $45,000 and $175,000.

Vendors who are interested in being included on District's Qualified Contractor list for informal bidding of public works projects should complete the Contractor Pre-Qualification Application each calendar year.

Please keep in mind that it is the vendor's responsibility to provide any updates to the vendor's address, contact persons, and contact information to the District to avoid misdirected communication.

For additional information, please contact the Purchasing Department at purchasing@ltcc.edu.

It should be noted that SB 854 became effective July 1, 2014, and requires contractors to register with the Department of Industrial Relations (DIR) prior to bidding or performing work on public works and/or repair and maintenance projects.
