Here is why the Marinwood Fire Department Kitchen is not required to register as a public works contract.
From California Department of Industrial Relations Website HERE
Are there any exceptions to the registration requirement?
Contractors who work exclusively on small public works projects are not required to register as a public works contractor or file electronic certified payroll reports for those projects. Contractors are still required to maintain certified payroll records on a continuous basis, and provide them to the Labor Commissioner’s Office upon request. Additionally, awarding agencies are not required to submit the notice of contract award through DIR’s PWC-100 system on projects that fall within the small project exemption. The small project exemption applies for all public works projects that do not exceed:
$25,000 for new construction, alteration, installation, demolition or repair
$15,000 for maintenance
Even the Marinwood CSD is allowed to save money on small contracts as of July 1, 2017.
