BOARD POLICY No. 6950
The district will only enter into a contract with a contractor who is licensed or registered as required by the laws of this state. A statement by the contractor must be submitted and sworn to which states that the contractor is in compliance with the state laws relating to prevailing wage for public works and with state and federal laws relating to nondiscrimination in hiring. Such a statement may be a provision or clause in the contract.
Contractor Surety Bonds and Insurance
Each contractor's bid must be accompanied by a certified or cashier's check or bid bond in the amount required by bidding documents. Bidding documents will specify whether the district or the contractor will carry fire, liability, or other insurance during construction.
The successful bidder is required to make, execute and deliver to the district a good and sufficient payment and performance bond as required by law and bidding documents.
Change orders will be considered if they arise during construction. In order to facilitate timely progress during construction, the board shall grant the superintendent or designee authority to authorize change orders to the extent the board deems appropriate at the onset of a new capital construction campaign.
