Most public contract work in California is controlled by the provisions of the California Public Contract Code. This unique contract code represents the efforts of the California legislature to gather into one place all statutory enactments that deal with public contracts: laws that govern such things as competitive bidding, affirmative action, alternates, extras, performance bonds, payment bonds, per-qualifications, value engineering, design-build, and prompt payment.
Acret’s California Public Contract Laws provides all of the important court decisions that interpret the California Contract Code. It gives examples of accepted practice for the Contract Code as it applies in all parts of the state - from specification of a contractor’s license classification, to bid information on subs, to payment laws—such as interest on payments. All the details are listed here in clear, plain English that even non-lawyers can understand.
