The work is to be performed in Alameda County, California. SFPUC has determined, in accordance with Cal.

SFPUC-LBEs cannot be counted towards meeting the LBE subcontracting requirement(s).  Prime and Joint Venture level LBE participation cannot be counted towards meeting any of the LBE subcontracting requirement(s). LBE subcontractors must be certified with CMD in the scope of work they are being listed to perform. All Bidders shall submit documented Good Faith efforts with their Bids as directed on CMD Form 2B, except those who exceed the above-stated subcontracting requirement(s) by at least 35%. Refer to CMD Attachment 1. Failure to comply with Chapter 14B requirements may result in a Bid being deemed non-responsive and ineligible for Contract award.  Please contact Michelle Kassatly at (408) 641-8031 or for further information.  Subcontracting opportunities may include, but not limited, to the following major types of work: electrical, mechanical, instrumentation and controls.  Please refer to Section 01 60 00 in the Specifications regarding the purchase of equipment to achieve the LBE subcontracting participation requirement.
