NEW PUBLIC WORKS CONTRACTOR REGISTRATION LAW (SB 854)

As per the Department of Industrial Relations requirements, as of April 1, 2015 the Department may only award Public Works projects to contractors/subcontractors that are in compliance with the new Public Works Contractor Registration Law (SB 854).

Public Works are defined as projects involving any work done under contract and paid for in whole or in part out of public funds – except work done directly by any public utility company pursuant to order of the Public Utilities Commission or other public authority – in the following categories:

  • Alteration
  • Construction
  • Demolition
  • Installation
  • Maintenance
  • Repair

Contractors/subcontractors doing Public Works projects must register and meet requirements using the online application before bidding on Public Works contracts in California.  The application also provides agencies that administer Public Works programs with a searchable database of qualified contractors/subcontractors.  More information is available at the following links:
