Reports to School Board


Senate Bill 854 established a new public works contractor registration program which will collect fees to fund compliance monitoring and enforcement, determine prevailing wage and public works coverage, and hear enforcement appeals.

All contractors and subcontractors intending to bid or perform work on public works projects will be required to register, and annually renew, online for the program.  The cost to register for the program is $300 and is non-refundable.  

Click here for memo from Donna Caperton, Assistant Superintendent-Business Services, regarding this new registration program.
