21450.  The provisions of this article shall apply to contracts by
the Amador County Water Agency, as provided for in Chapter 2137 of
the Statutes of 1959.


21451.  All contracts for any improvement or unit of work, when the
cost according to the estimate of the engineer will exceed twelve
thousand five hundred dollars ($12,500), 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, 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 payment bonds shall comply with Chapter 7
(commencing with Section 3247) of Division 3 of Title 15 of the Civil
Code. The board may reject any bid. If all proposals are rejected or
no proposals are received, or the estimated cost of the work does
not exceed twelve thousand five hundred dollars ($12,500), or the
work consists of channel protection, maintenance work, or 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 agency 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.
