DetailsThis workshop will provide an overview of contract procurement laws, the California Uniform Public Construction Cost Accounting Act, and exceptions to competitive bidding. School districts utilize a wide-range of procurement methods for goods and services and staff are expected to comply with a stringent set of legal requirements when they purchase materials, equipment, supplies and services. These requirements can sometimes pose complications in specific contexts, in which case it is very helpful to be aware of various exceptions and alternatives to competitive bidding, especially in the context of construction projects.
This workshop will explore several areas, including:
• Best practice in contracting based on specific types of procurement and the nuances that apply under CUPCCAA.
• Alternatives as well as recent legal developments in this area of law.
• Factors causing construction project costs to skyrocket, such as escalation, labor shortages and material/supplier cost increases.
• Strategies and legal issues related to delivery methods and how they can be used to the district's benefit.
This event is reserved for school district or public agency employees only. Please contact Client Services for more information.
