UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA BASE QUALIFICATIONS
This systemwide Base Qualification Questionnaire is designed to help General Contractors and Mechanical, Electrical, or Plumbing Subcontractors determine whether they are “Base Qualified" to bid on competitive, informally bid UC projects. Under Public Contract Code 10504.5, these General Contractors and Mechanical, Electrical, or Plumbing Subcontractors who wish to bid on competitive, informally bid UC projects that exceed $300,000 but that do not exceed $640,000 in construction value must complete such a questionnaire.
Qualification via the Base Qualification Questionnaire provided by the University Office of the President does not guarantee your firm any work or qualification status for campuses and/or projects. Individual campuses often have campus- or project-specific requirements that are part of a separate qualification process. These Base Qualification standards are designed only as a minimum bar and may be used in conjunction with other qualification requirements. When campuses require additional qualification efforts for project-specific concerns, contractors are solely responsible for verifying their compliance with the issuing campus representatives.
Please visit the individual campus websites or view your invitation to bid for other types of project specific details that may apply to your situation.
