IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR PUBLIC WORKS CONTRACTORS
SB 854 (Stat. 2014, chapter 28) made several changes to the laws governing how the Department of Industrial Relations (DIR) monitors compliance with prevailing wage requirements on public works projects.
This requirement, found in Labor Code Section 1773.3, now applies to all public works projects.
California law (SB854) now requires public works contractors subject to prevailing wage requirements to register annually with the Department of Industrial Relations and pay an annual fee. Effective March 1, 2015, the County of Riverside will accept public works bids from only those contractors and subcontractors who have complied with this requirement.
Please refer to the https://www.dir.ca.gov/Public-Works/PublicWorksContractorsAndSubcontractors.html website for more information.
To become pre-qualified for projects under $200,000 (total project cost), please see the application and the instruction sheet below:
