SSDA Today - Fall/Winter 2017 - 21

seeking more revenue for compliance monitoring, and the labor unions were seeking
greater penalties for non-compliance, SSDA
brokered a compromise to raise the dollar
threshold before the contractor reporting
requirements would apply.The new DIR provisions are contained in two bills, Assembly
Bill 112 and Senate Bill 96.
These changes apply to ALL school
districts.
NEW PUBLIC WORKS PROVISIONS

* The new provisions of the law apply
to any bid submitted on or after
March 1, 2015, and to any contract for
public work executed after April 1, 2015,
and to any public work performed on
or after January 1, 2018, regardless of
when the contract was entered.
* Reporting limits increased from $1,000
to $25,000 for new construction,
alteration, demolition, installation, or
repair work.
* Reporting limits increased from $1,000
to $15,000 for maintenance projects.
* An awarding body now has 30 days
from the award to provide notice to

DIR (increased from five days in current law).
* Annual fees for contractors and subcontractors have been increased from
$300 to $400, as of July 1, 2017.
* Contractor penalties (partial list):
❍ Contractor fines for non-compliance
with DIR registration are $100 per day
in violation, not to exceed $8,000.
❍ Loss of registration for current year
and the following year.
* Awarding agency penalties:
❍ For failure to provide notice within
30 days of award, $100 per day, up
to $10,000.
❍ The Labor Commissioner will determine the severity of the violation and
amount of penalty and may waive
the penalty for a first-time violation,
if determined to be unintentional.
❍ If an awarding agency makes a final
payment to a contractor, but an
unregistered contractor or subcontractor is found, a fine of $100 per
day, up to $10,000, may be assessed.
❍ If a "willful" violation has occurred
with respect to two or more public

works contracts in any 12-month
period, the public agency shall be
ineligible to receive state funds for
one year.
This successful effort demonstrates the
effectiveness of a tenacious and organized
grassroots effort. Well done, SSDA!! ●
Editor's Note: SSDA
would like to wholeheartedly thank Capitol
Advisors partner Susan
Stuart, who has recently
retired after being active
in the political arena for over 25 years.
Once an educator and administrator herself, Susan has always been a staunch
advocate for education and a great
friend and protector of the interests of
small school districts. She played a vital
role in our recently-won Department
of Industrial Relations (DIR) provisions,
which you can read all about in this issue.
Thank you, Susan, for all your hard work
and we wish you nothing but the best in
your retirement!
