  In accordance with the provisions of the California Labor Code, contractors or subcontractors may not perform work on a public works project with a subcontractor who is ineligible to perform work on a public project pursuant to Section 1777.1 or Section 1777.7 of the California Labor Code.  Any contract on a public works project entered into between a contractor and a debarred subcontractor is void as a matter of law.  A debarred subcontractor may not receive any public money for performing work as a subcontractor on a public works contract.  Any public money that is paid, or may have been paid to a debarred subcontractor by a contractor on the Project shall be returned to the District. Contractor shall be responsible for the payment of wages to workers of a debarred subcontractor who has been allowed to work on the Project.
It shall be mandatory upon the bidder to whom the Contract is awarded, and upon any subcontractor under him, to comply with all Labor Code provisions, which include, but are not limited to the payment of not less than the said specified rates to all workers employed by them in the execution of the contract, employment of apprentices, hours of labor and debarment of contractors and subcontractors. 
  Each bidder shall be a licensed contractor pursuant to the Business and Professions Code and shall be licensed in the appropriate classification(s) of contractor’s license(s), for the work bid upon, and must maintain the license throughout the duration of the contract.
