Construction Projects - Informal Bids (GSD)
In 2019, the County of Santa Cruz adopted the California Uniform Public Construction Cost Accounting Act (CUPCCAA), enacted in 1983 under section 22000 et seq. Public Contract Code. We practice under 3-tiers for construction projects (1) in-house staff performs or basic vendor solicitations up to $59,999; (2) Informal Bidding $60,000-199,999; or (3) Formal Bidding over $200,000, which requires Board approval and other advertising routes.
Informal Projects will be issued to the Builder's Exchanges and advertised below, but don't necessarily have Board dates, unless the procurement cycle requires such. Inquiries should be made to the Project Manager, or else contact our Facilities Maintenance & Project Operations Division - Deputy Director Thomas Fakner CCM (831) 454-4606, by email to: Thomas.Fakner@santacruzcounty.us; General Services Inquires (like Public Records Requests) will be addressed at GSD_InfoDesk@santacruzcounty.us or by calling (831) 454-2210.
