California Public Contract Code Section 20111 requires that Public Works Projects over $15,000.00, and Purchase of Supplies or Equipment over $96,700.00 be formally bid. Bid security in the form of a bidders bond, cashier’s check, certified check or cash in the amount of 10% of the bid amount, is required to be included with all bid proposals. There may be a non-refundable charge for each bid package.
Some bids will be available to download on or after the “Date Bid Packet is Available.” If a link is not available for a bid, drawings, blueprints, and fees may be components of the bid packet, making it difficult to post online. Please contact the Purchasing Department at 559-327-9475 for further information on these bids.
After downloading a bid, be sure to advise us that you have done so, so that we can add your company to the plan holders list and be sure to watch the web site for any possible addendums or changes to the bids.
All inquiries regarding bids should be directed to Leeann Errotabere at 559-327-9479 or e-mail at [email protected]

The Notice to Bidders/Notice to Contractors page within each bid packet will notify potential bidders if DBE or DVBE compliance is anticipated on the individual bid project. A program compliance affidavit form will also be included in the individual bid packet.
