Guidelines for Prime Contractors
Prime or general contractors awarded a public improvement contract must provide the City a subcontracting plan to set forth their efforts to extend opportunities for small and disadvantaged local business participation. The contractor’s plan must be submitted to the City Engineer before a notice to proceed will be issued. However; on emergency projects, the contractor may be permitted to submit its small and disadvantaged local business subcontracting plan after the issuance of the notice to proceed.
The subcontracting plan must outline the contractor's efforts of the following:
- Create and maintain records demonstrating efforts and the success of the efforts.
- Provide a report on the progress and success of its small and disadvantaged local business subcontracting plan to the City Engineer as a condition precedent to final payment and release of retainage.
Following final inspection, the prime contractor shall submit a project completion form to the City Engineer. Once received, final acceptance and payment of final claim may be initiated.
