California contractors who work on public works projects are facing crucial deadlines. Waiting too long may put the project and those contractors in a difficult position. 

The deadlines are that contractors must be registered to bid on a public works project on or after March 1, 2015; and can't work on a new project that is awarded on or after April 1, 2015

Registering requires the contractor to fill out a registration form under the penalty of perjury. The contractor may need time to review any unpaid liabilities to the state of California, confirm Worker's Compensation insurance, etc. If a mistake is made by the contractor on the form, under the perjury penalty; the contractor can be debarred from public works projects for up to three years, and face further potential disciplinary action from the Contractors' State License Board. 

If a contractor violates the deadlines, they may have to pay significant penalties, ($2,000); and risk having their work stopped until their registration is rectified. Awarding bodies need to be diligent in monitoring those who bid and work on upcoming projects. 

The Division of Labor Standards also encourages contractors to register using a credit card, as it will speed up the issuance of the registration.  You can expect to receive your confirmed registration number within 24 hours when paying by credit card. 

Contractors and awarding bodies can see the requirements of registration, as well as begin registering, by clicking below:
