Summary

Under current law, the requirements of the Construction Bidding
for Public Projects Act (act) generally apply to a public project if the
cost of the project is reasonably expected to exceed $500,000 for any
fiscal year; except that a public project supervised by the department of
transportation (CDOT) is subject to the requirements of the act if the cost

of the project is reasonably expected to exceed $150,000 for any fiscal
year. The bill:
  • Repeals the lower cost amount for CDOT projects, which
means that the requirements of the act, including the
requirement that CDOT prepare a bid estimate when it
proposes to undertake a project itself rather than awarding
the project to a contractor through competitive bidding,
will apply to a CDOT project only if the cost of the project
is reasonably expected to exceed $500,000 for any fiscal
year; and
  • Increases from $50,000 to $100,000 the maximum cost for
a CDOT project that is exempt from transportation
commission approval.
The bill also limits the existing requirement that CDOT pay all employees
performing work on any public project local prevailing wages in
accordance with specified federal acts to projects that cost more than
$500,000.
