The California Uniform Public Construction Cost Accounting Act (CUPCCAA) provides for alternative bidding procedures when an agency performs public project work by contract. Public projects, as defined by the Act and in accordance with the limits listed in Section 22032 of the Public Contract Code, will be allowed to contract by informal procedures as set forth in Sections 22032-22045 of the Public Contract Code. 
  • Public projects of $60,000 or less may be performed by negotiated contract or by purchase order per PCC22032(a).
  • Public projects of $200,000 or less may be let to contract by the informal bidding procedures per PCC22032(b).
  • Public projects of more than $200,000 shall be let to contract by formal bidding procedures per PCC22032(c)
  • If all bids received are in excess of two hundred thousand dollars ($200,000), the governing body of the public agency may, by adoption of a resolution by a four-fifths vote, award the contract, at two hundred twelve thousand five hundred dollars ($212,500) or less, to the lowest responsible bidder, if it determines the cost estimate of the public          agency was reasonable per PCC22034.
