Local education agencies use a wide range of methods for procurement, and staff are expected to comply with a stringent set of legal requirements when they purchase materials, equipment, supplies, and services. These requirements can sometimes pose complications in specific contexts, especially in the case of construction projects, in which case it’s helpful to be aware of various exceptions and alternatives to competitive bidding. In this workshop, we’ll explore best practices in contracting based on specific types of procurement, nuances that apply under the California Uniform Public Construction Cost Accounting Act and other alternatives, and recent legal developments in this area of law.
