Oakland Unified School District


California Uniform Construction Cost Accounting Commission Act (CUPCCA)

Oakland Unified School District has elected to become subject to the California Uniform Construction Cost Accounting Commission Act (CUPCCA) procedures. CUPCAA is legislation that was enacted in 1983 to help promote “uniformity of the cost accounting standards and bidding procedures on construction work performed or contracted by public entities in the state” (Section 22001).

CUPCAA is a voluntary program available to all public entities in the state, but it applies only to those public agencies that have “opted in” to the provisions set forth by the act using the processes outlined in the act. CUPCCA allows for public project work in the amount of $60,000 or less to be performed by a public agency’s force account using the public agency’s own resources, or by negotiated contract, or by purchase order.

Public projects in the amount of $200,000 or less may use the informal or formal bidding procedures set forth in Section 22032(b) or (c) of the act. Public projects at a cost of more than $200,000 must use formal bidding procedures to let the contract pursuant PCC Section 22032(c).

The District is inviting all licensed contractors to submit information for inclusion on the District's list of qualified bidders. Complete the CUPCCA form HERE
