For all public works projects the City has centralized construction contracting within City Purchasing and Contracting Services (CPCS). Our office provides the rules, policies, process and directions, and manages the bidding and contracting process.
Public Works Solicitations
Job Order Contracts
Like most public agencies, the City is allowed to utilize Job Order Contracting with prime contractors for facility and utility construction work. See the Job Order Contracting page for more information.
Getting Paid on Construction Projects
Prompt payment is important. State law protects those who perform work on City projects. The City wants construction companies and workers to receive prompt payment and full wages. See the Getting Paid on Construction Projects page for more information.
Policies and Templates
CPCS issues policies, guidelines and boilerplates to City departments for all City bid and contract responsibilities. Download documents from the Public Works - Policies and Templates page.
