New School Construction, Renovation, Responsible Contracting Criteria - Per Board Policy 6321
For the 2022-23 fiscal year, $28,048 is the threshold amount at which school districts must competitively bid for: (1) labor and materials for construction projects (RSC Section 1267), and (2) the purchase of supplies, materials, and equipment (RSC Sections 623a and 1274). School officials must not disaggregate a project (which includes additions, repairs, or renovations) or supplies, materials, and equipment into discrete components to circumvent competitive bidding requirements. Instead, school officials must calculate each procurement as a whole. The board encourages local vendor participation where practical.
