Dear Contractors,

East Side Union High School District has always required General Contractors to be prequalified on all Bond Construction Contracts.  In order to comply with California Assembly Bill AB 1565, which went into effect on January 1, 2014, we now require all M/E/P Subcontractors to also be prequalified to subcontract with General Contractors or as prime contractors.

This applies to the following license classifications:

  • General Contractors (A and B)
  • Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing subcontractors (C-4, C-7, C-10, C-16, C-20, C-34, C-36, C-38, C-42, C-43, and C-46)
