WAGE RATES: Pursuant to Section 1773 of the Labor Code, the general prevailing wage rates in the county in which the work is to be done have been determined by the Director of the California Department of Industrial Relations. These wages are set forth in the General Prevailing Wage Rates for this project. Said determinations are on file and available from the County of San Diego in Purchasing and Contracting, District Operations Center, Building 11, 5555 Overland Avenue, San Diego, CA 92123 and available from the California Department of Industrial Relations' Internet web site at http://www.dir.ca.gov. The Federal minimum wage rates for this project as predetermined by the United States Secretary of Labor are set forth in the books issued for bidding purposes entitled 'Proposal and Contract," and in copies of this book that may be examined at the offices described above where project documents, special provisions, and proposal forms may be seen. Addenda to modify the Federal minimum wage rates, if necessary, will be issued to holders of "Proposal and Contract' books. Future effective general prevailing wage rates, which have been predetermined and are on file with the California Department of Industrial Relations are referenced but not printed in the general prevailing wage rates.
Attention is directed to the Federal minimum wage rate requirements in the books entitled 'Proposal and Contract.' If there is a difference between the minimum wage rate as predetermined by the Secretary of Labor and the general prevailing wage rates determined by the Director of the California Department of Industrial Relations for similar classifications of labor, the Contractor and subcontractors shall pay not less than the higher wage rate. The Department will not accept lower State wage rates not specifically included in the Federal minimum wage determinations. This includes 'helper' (or other classifications based on hours of experience) or any other classification not appearing in the Federal wage determinations. Where Federal wage determinations do not contain the State wage role determination otherwise available for use by the Contractor and Subcontractors, the Contractor and subcontractors shall pay not less than the Federal minimum wage rate, which most closely approximates the duties of the employees in question.
CONTRACTOR'S LICENSING LAWS: Attention is directed to the CONTRACTOR'S License Law concerning the licensing of CONTRACTOR'S. CONTRACTOR'S are required to be licensed and regulated by the CONTRACTOR'S State License Board. WITHDRAWAL: Withdrawal of bids shall not be permitted for a period of seventy-five (75) days after the date set for the opening thereof.
