This is a Public Works Contract.

General Prevailing Wage Determinations made by the Director of Industrial Relations pursuant to California Labor Code Sections 1720 et seq. The current General Prevailing Wage Determinations are incorporated into the Contract, and are available at the California Department of Industrial Relations' website ( Should the general prevailing wage rates not specify a wage determination for a particular type of worker, attention is directed to 8 CCR 16202(b) regarding petitioning the Director of the California Department of Industrial Relations for a special wage determination.

The successful Bidder will be required to furnish a Performance Bond and a Payment Bond, both in the amount set forth in the Special Provisions.
