6222 Selection of Contractors for Small Construction Projects

The School Board hereby authorizes the creation and maintenance of a Small Works Roster pursuant to RCW 28A.335.190 and RCW 39.04.155, and directs that it be used for contracts expected to cost under $350,000.00 to the extent consistent with applicable law, cost and schedule constraints, and sound business practices. 

Pursuant to RCW 39.04.155(5), the Board directs that the district shall establish a sub-roster for each trade, consisting of firms with annual gross revenue less than $1,000,000 as shown on the federal tax return, and that contracts of less than $35,000 shall be competed among firms listed on the applicable sub-roster whenever feasible. The district shall not require retainage or corporate surety bonds on small works contracts of less than $35,000. 

The Superintendent is authorized to develop procedures to implement the intent and requirements of this policy.
