The California Uniform (Public) Construction Cost Accounting Act is a state act that any public agency may elect to participate in. It raises the force account limit of a public agency to $60,000 before they must informally or formally competitively bid projects. Informal bidding is only allowed on projects under $200,000. In exchange, the public agency must follow certain accounting rules. The regulations also require strict advertising guidelines on all projects. An agency can elect to become signatory to CUCCAA by passing a resolution and by adopting an informal bidding ordinance. They then must file this with the State Controller’s Office.
