Pre-Bid Conference and Job Walk: A pre-bid job walk is not scheduled for this re-bid. Placer County has not established a goal for this Contract. However, proposers are encouraged to obtain DBE participation for this contract. In April of 2009 Placer County adopted the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) Implementation Agreement as a requirement to receive federal funding for projects. This established Placer County's DBE Goal and Methodology providing for a Race-Conscious (RC) and Race-Neutral goal program. On June 22, 2012 the Department of Transportation announced a change to the Caltrans Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program. Contract goals for federally funded projects authorized on or after July 1, 2012, must include ALL DBE groups (African American, Asian Pacific American, Native American, Women, Hispanic American and Subcontinent Asian American and any other groups whose members are certified as socially and economically disadvantaged). As recipients of federal highway funds, Placer County must comply with all federal regulations, and make every effort to encourage and assist in the outreach and participation of DBE firms. The goal of the program is to insure non-discrimination and create a level playing field in which DBEs can compete fairly for Department of Transportation (DOT)-assisted contracts. The current DBE Program includes a Race-Conscious component (RC DBE Program) that will require race-conscious contract specific goals to be incorporated into all DOT-funded consultant and construction contracts. Race-Conscious contract goals and Good Faith Efforts will be required as part of the program compliance and will include ALL certified DBEs. Bids are required for the entire work described herein. The Contractor shall possess a valid California Class A contractor's license, or a combination of the following classes: C-8 Concrete Contractor, C-12 Earthwork and Paving Contractor, C-31 Construction Zone Traffic Control, C-32 Parking and Highway Improvement Contractor, D-42 Sign Installation Contractor, D-56 Trenching Contractor, D-63 Construction Cleanup Contractor, and all other classes required by the categories and types of work included in this contract at the time of the bid award.

A contractor or subcontractor shall not be qualified to bid on, be listed in a bid proposal, subject to the requirements of Section 4104 of the Public Contract Code, or engage in the performance of any contract for public work, as defined in this chapter, unless currently registered and qualified to perform public work pursuant to Section 1725.5. This contract is subject to state contract nondiscrimination and compliance requirements pursuant to Government Code, Section 12990.

Pursuant to Section 1773 of the Labor Code, the general prevailing wage rates in the county, or counties, in which the work is to be done have been determined by the Director of the California Department of Industrial Relations. These wages are set forth in the General Prevailing Wage Rates for this project, available at County of Placer, Department of Public Works, 3091 County Center Drive, Suite 220, Community Development Resource Agency Building, Auburn, California 95603 and available from the California Department of Industrial Relations' Internet web site at http://www.dir.ca.gov/DLSR/PWD. The Federal minimum wage rates for this project as predetermined by the United States Secretary of Labor are set forth in the Bid Book and in copies of this book that may be examined at the offices described above where project plans, special provisions, and bid forms may be seen. Addenda to modify the Federal minimum wage rates, if necessary, will be issued to holders of Bid Book. Future effective general prevailing wage rates, which have been predetermined and are on file with the California Department of Industrial Relations are referenced but not printed in the general prevailing wage rates. Attention is directed to the Federal minimum wage rate requirements in the Bid Book. If there is a difference between the minimum wage rates predetermined by the Secretary of Labor and the general prevailing wage rates determined by the Director of the California Department of Industrial Relations for similar classifications of labor, the Contractor and subcontractors shall pay not less than the higher wage rate. The Department will not accept lower State wage rates not specifically included in the Federal minimum wage determinations. This includes "helper" (or other classifications based on hours of experience) or any other classification not appearing in the Federal wage determinations. Where Federal wage determinations do not contain the State wage rate determination otherwise available for use by the Contractor and subcontractors, the Contractor and subcontractors shall pay not less than the Federal minimum wage rate, which most closely approximates the duties of the employees in question.
