Public Contracting Requirements and Competitive Bidding in California

Please join Eric Firstman, Chair of Meyers Nave’s Public Contracts and Construction Practice Groups, and Meyers Nave Principal Doug McManamon for a full-day program that will review the key issues and trade-offs at each stage of a California public works construction project. This seminar will take place on October 22 in Sacramento.

Starting with selection of a project delivery method, the seminar will move through the life cycle of a project including professional services agreements, prequalification and best value selection, key construction contract terms, limiting liability and risk transfers, labor compliance, liquidated damages, disputes, statutory claim procedures, closeout and prompt payment of retention. The seminar will cover the recently expanded scope of the California conflict of interest statutes, prevailing wage enforcement and statutory limits on indemnities and damages. Covering more than just the nuts and bolts, the seminar will provide perspectives on the most important issues that arise and how to strike the right balance in the solutions chosen at each stage.

The topics include:

  • Options and Selection of a Contracting Method
  • Generally Applicable Statutes and Requirements
  • Procuring Consultants, Architects, Engineers, Construction Managers
  • Preparing the Construction Contract
  • Procuring the Construction Team
  • Common Bidding Issues and Bid Protests

  • Understanding and Drafting for Claims on Public Works Projects
