SECTION 21510-21511



21510.  The provisions of this article shall apply to contracts by
the San Gorgonio Pass Water Agency, as provided for in Chapter 1435
of the Statutes of 1961.



21511.  (a) All contracts for any improvement or unit of work, when
the cost according to the estimate of the engineer will exceed fifty
thousand dollars ($50,000), 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, 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 and all bids.
   (b) In the event all proposals are rejected or no proposals are
received, or the estimated cost of the work does not exceed ten
thousand dollars ($10,000), 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).
   (c) 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. However, materials and supplies for use
in any new construction work or improvement, except work referred to
in subdivision (b), may not be purchased, if the cost exceeds fifty
thousand dollars ($50,000), without advertising for bids and awarding
the contract to the lowest responsible bidder.
