Electronic Pre-qualification Tool
To comply with California Assembly Bill AB 2031, Fontana Unified School District requires General Contractors and Subcontractors to be prequalified on all Bond Construction Contracts.
To become prequalified, applications must be submitted to PQBids.com. PQBids is an easy to use web-based application that streamlines the new Department of Industrial Relations pre-qualification process.
Contractors can apply for or renew prequalification online by going to https://pqbids.com/fontana/ . Required information includes but is not limited to: completing the safety questionnaire, company history, references, insurance certificates, bonding documents, and financial statements.
The district purchases equipment, supplies and services using competitive bidding when required by law and in accordance with statutory requirements for bidding and bidding procedures. In those circumstances where the law does not require competitive bidding, the Governing Board may still request that a contract be competitively bid if the Board determines that it is in the best interest of the district to do so. Additionally, the Board may piggyback onto the contract of another public agency or corporation to lease or purchase equipment or supplies to the extent authorized by law. (Board Policy 3311)
Prequalification status can be viewed on the PQ Bids website.
