CUPCCAA Contractor Registration

The California Uniform Public Construction Cost Accounting Act (CUPCCAA) is under the umbrella of the California Uniform Public Construction Cost Accounting Commission (CUPCCAC) and provides for alternative bidding procedures when an agency performs public project work by contract.      

(a) Public projects of $60,000 or less may be performed by the employees of a public agency by force account, by negotiated contract, or by purchase order. 

(b) Public projects of $200,000, if all bids received are in excess of $200,000.

(c) the governing body of the public agency may, by the adoption of a resolution by a four-fifths vote, award the contract, at $212,500 or less, to the lowest responsible bidder if it determines the cost estimate of the public agency was reasonable.

  • per Public Contract code 22032 and Public Contract Code 22034 

In November of each year, participating districts place an ad in various construction trade journals and a newspaper of general circulation inviting all licensed contractors to submit the name of their firm to the district for inclusion on the district’s list of qualified bidders for the following calendar year.

The Pleasant Valley Joint Union Elementary School District has completed all the necessary requirements to participate in this alternative bidding process and solicits your firm to register. Contractors may download the Registration Application from the district's website at the Contractor CUPCCA Registration page.
