Assembly Bill 1121 – Creates The Electronic Ineligibility List For Public Works
To be qualified to bid on, be listed in a bid proposal, or engage in the performance of any public works contract, a contractor or subcontractor must be registered with the Department of Industrial Relations (DIR). The DIR is required to maintain a list of contractors that are currently registered to perform public works on its internet website.
AB 1121 requires authorities awarding bids on public works to annually submit to the DIR’s electronic project registration database, a list of contractors that are ineligible to bid on or be awarded a public works contract, or to perform work as a subcontractor on a public works project pursuant to local debarment or suspension processes. AB 1121 requires the DIR to make the list available to the public through the electronic database.
(AB 1121 amends Section 1771.1 of the Labor Code.)
