Summary: California Assembly Bill (AB) 1565 requires school districts with over 2,500 students to pre-qualify general contractors and certain (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) subcontractors if the total project value is $1,000,000 or more, and if the project is funded, in whole or in part, with State bond funds.

Colbi Technologies has proposed to provide access to Quality Bidders; a web-based software tool that scores and pre-qualifies contractors in accordance with current California regulations, making the process easier and more consistent for districts and contractors.

The cost is $2,500 for the initial setup, $5,000 per year for the software service plus $85 per hour for client services including: reference checks, financial statement reviews, license and bonding verification (estimated at $3,500 annually).
Fiscal Impact/Source: General Fund
Not to exceed $11,000.00 first year
Not to exceed $8,500.00 in subsequent years
Recommendation: The administration recommends the Board of Trustees of the Beaumont Unified School District approve an agreement with Colbi Technologies, Inc. for use of its web-based Quality Bidder software and review services for required contractor prequalification.
