Current Pre-qualified Contractors and M.E.P.
Clarification to Pre-qualification Applicants
In response to the many questions we have received we offer the following:
Anyone falling under the specified license classification for pre-qualification who is not able to submit a pre-qualification application by the advertised deadline is encouraged to continue with the process of submitting their application. Pre-qualification will apply for one year from the date that you receive notice that you have been pre-qualified.
Please be advised of the following as it has been confusing to some contractors wanting to submit.
In addition to completing and verifying the attached questionnaire, each applicant must submit and verify its most current reviewed or audited year-end financial statement, which must have been prepared by a certified public accountant within twelve (12) months of each applicant’s submission of the pre-qualification package. Each applicant must also provide and verify its most current financial statement, which must have been prepared within three (3) months of each applicant’s submission of the pre-qualification package. Each statement must be signed under penalty of perjury by an individual who has the legal authority to bind the contractor on whose behalf that person is signing. Finally, each applicant must submit a notarized statement from an admitted surety insurer (approved by the California Department of Insurance and authorized to issue bonds in the State of California) which states the applicant’s current bonding capacity.
Financial statements submitted with this pre-qualification package shall not be prepared by any individual who is in the regular employ of the firm submitting the statement, nor by any individual or entity who has more than a ten percent (10%) financial interest in the firm’s business. If the individual or entity that prepared a financial statement submitted with this pre-qualification package has any financial interest in the firm’s business, the firm shall notify the District of such financial interest in a separate signed statement accompanying this pre-qualification package.
