Construction Industry Force Account Council

Promoting Transparency Through Public Agency Compliance

Become A Member OLD

We invite you to become a member of the Construction Industry Force Account Council (CIFAC)

Our mission is to advance job opportunities through competitive bidding and we can only do this through the support of our membership. CIFAC’s focus is on local government agencies of all types and certain state agencies that undertake public works construction. Too often, these entities are tempted to keep new construction projects in-house and use their staff to perform the work. California law contains force account limits and bidding thresholds. If project costs exceed the limits, the work must be bid. There is no State agency that monitors these requirements resulting in the formation of CIFAC in 1977. CIFAC is a non-profit enforcement association of concerned contractors organizations, contractors and various trade organizations whose members want an opportunity to bid. CIFAC’s expertise on the Public Contract Code also allows us to serve as a resource to both contractors and local agencies.

Membership dues are based on a sliding scale dependent on the size of your membership, ranging from $1,000 to $1,500 for full membership and $500 for associate (non-voting) members. These funds help pay for monitoring local governments, updating the website and the CIFAC Facebook page with the latest industry alerts and news articles that inform you and your members of force account and bidding violations under investigation. Your dues also support our legislative program and legal fees if going to court is our only remedy.
