SECTION 21370-21371



21370.  The provisions of this article shall apply to contracts by
the Sutter County Water Agency, as provided for in Chapter 2088 of
the Statutes of 1959.


21371.  All contracts for any improvement or unit of work, when the
cost according to the estimate of the engineer will exceed five
thousand dollars ($5,000), shall be let to the lowest responsible
bidder or bidders as provided in this article. The board shall first
determine whether the contract shall be let as a single unit, or
divided into severable parts. The board shall advertise for bids by
three insertions in a daily newspaper of general circulation or by
two insertions in a weekly newspaper of general circulation printed
and published in the agency's jurisdiction, inviting sealed proposals
for the construction or performance of the improvement or work. The
call for bids shall state whether the work shall be performed in one
unit or divided into parts. The work may be let under a single
contract or several contracts, as stated in the call. The board shall
require the successful bidders to file with the board good and
sufficient bonds to be approved by the board conditioned upon the
faithful performance of the contract and upon the payment of their
claims for labor and material. The bonds shall comply with Title 15
(commencing with Section 3082) of Part 4 of Division 3 of the Civil
Code. The board may reject any bid. In the event all proposals are
rejected or no proposals are received, or the estimated cost of the
work does not exceed five thousand dollars ($5,000), or the work
consists of emergency work, the board may have the work done by force
account without advertising for bids. In case of an emergency, if
notice for bids to let contracts will not be given, the board shall
comply with Chapter 2.5 (commencing with Section 22050). The district
may purchase in the open market without advertising for bids,
materials and supplies for use in any work, either under contract or
by force account.
