NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the City of Moorpark, California (“City”) invites sealed Bids for the Project and will receive such bids in the office of the City Clerk of the City of Moorpark at 799 Moorpark Avenue, Moorpark, California, 93021 up to the hour of 2:00 p.m. on the 21st day of October 2021, at which time they will be publicly opened and read aloud.  The official bid clock, which will establish the official bid time, will be determined by the City Clerk’s Division of the City of Moorpark.

Mandatory Pre-bid Meeting AND Site Visit.  A mandatory pre-bid meeting and site walk will be held on September 29, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. at the Moorpark Metrolink Train Station North Parking Lot (300 East High Street).  Every Bidder is required to attend the pre-bid meeting and Project site walk.  Failure of a Bidder to attend will render that Bidder’s Bid non-responsive.  No allowances for cost adjustments will be made if a Bidder fails to adequately examine the Project site before submitting a Bid.  In order for a Bid to qualify for consideration in making an award, the Bidder shall have a responsible representative present for the entire duration of the Mandatory Pre-Bid Meeting.  Bids received from Bidders not represented at the Mandatory Pre-Bid Meeting will be returned to the Bidder unopened.  RSVP with Shaun Kroes, at the City by September 27th.


REGISTRATION WITH THE DEPARTMENT OF INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS.  In accordance with Labor Code Sections 1725.5 and 1771.1, no contractor or subcontractor shall 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, unless currently registered and qualified to perform public work pursuant to Section 1725.5 [with limited exceptions for bid purposes only under Labor Code Section 1771.1(a)].

PREVAILING WAGES.  In accordance with Labor Code Section 1770 et seq., the Project is a “public work.”   The selected Bidder (Contractor) and any Subcontractors shall pay wages in accordance with the determination of the Director of the Department of Industrial Relations (“DIR”) regarding the prevailing rate of per diem wages.  Copies of those rates are on file and are available to any interested party upon request.  The Contractor shall post a copy of the DIR’s determination of the prevailing rate of per diem wages at each job site.  This Project is subject to compliance monitoring and enforcement by the DIR.

BONDS.  Each Bid must be accompanied by a cash deposit, cashier’s check, certified check or Bidder’s Bond issued by a Surety insurer, made payable to the City and in an amount not less than ten percent (10%) of the total Bid submitted.  Personal or company checks are not acceptable.  Upon Contract award, the Contractor shall provide faithful performance and payment Bonds, each in a sum equal to the Contract Price.  All Bonds must be issued by a California admitted Surety insurer using the forms set forth in the Contract Documents, or in any other form approved by the City Attorney.  Failure to enter into the Contract with the City, including the submission of all required Bonds and insurance coverages, within fifteen (15) Days after the date of the mailing of written notice of contract award to the Bidder, shall subject the Bid security to forfeiture to the extent provided by law.

LICENSES.  Each Bidder shall possess a valid Class A, Contractor’s license issued by the California State Contractors License Board at the time of the Bid submission, unless this Project has any federal funding, in which case the successful Bidder must possess such a license at the time of Contract award.  The successful Contractor must also obtain a current City business registration if awarded a contract.

RETENTION SUBSTITUTION.  Five percent (5%) of any progress payment will be withheld as retention.  In accordance with Public Contract Code Section 22300, and at the request and expense of the Contractor, securities equivalent to the amount withheld may be deposited with the City or with a State or federally chartered bank as escrow agent, which shall then pay such moneys to the Contractor.  Upon satisfactory completion of the Project, the securities shall be returned to the Contractor.  Alternatively, the Contractor may request that the City make payments of earned retentions directly to an escrow agent at the Contractor’s expense.  No such substitutions shall be accepted until all related documents are approved by the City.
