Subject: DIR Announcement

The California Department of Industrial Relations sent the following notice: Newsline No.: 2017-52 Date: June 28, 2017 Public Works Contractor Registration Fee Increased, Small Project Exemption Established Effective July 1 The Department of Industrial Relations (DIR) is advising public works contractors of 2017-2018 State Budget changes that go into effect on July 1. Annual registration fees for public works contractors have increased from $300 to $400, and contractors on small projects are exempt from public works registration and electronic certified payroll reporting requirements. Public works contractors who pay $300 to renew their annual registration on or before June 30, 2017, are not required to pay the increased amount. Beginning June 1, 2019, contractors will have the option to renew their annual registration for up to three years at a time. The Labor Commissioner will be able to assess public works contractors penalties of up to $8,000 – in addition to any penalty or registration fee – for failure to register. Awarding agencies are also subject to penalties of $100 a day, up to ¬¬a maximum of $10,000, for hiring an unregistered contractor to perform work on a public works project. A contractor that hires an unregistered subcontractor is also subject to penalties of up to $10,000. Small Project Exemption 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 DIR has extensive information regarding public works requirements on its Public Works website, including instructions for contractors on how to register. The Labor Commissioner’s Office, officially known as DIR’s Division of Labor Standards Enforcement, enforces prevailing wage rates and apprenticeship standards in public works projects, inspects workplaces for wage and hour violations, adjudicates wage claims, investigates retaliation complaints, issues licenses and registrations for businesses, and educates the public on labor laws. DIR protects and improves the health, safety and economic well-being of over 18 million wage earners, and helps their employers comply with state labor laws.

Subject: DIR Early Renewal Registration Now Open for Public Works Contractors

***This message is being sent to all City of Moreno Valley vendors. It is intended for Public Works Contractors ONLY. If you are NOT a Public Works Contractor, please disregard.**** Public works contractors who are registered with the Department of Industrial Relations (DIR) for the current fiscal year (ending June 30, 2017) may now renew their registration(s) for the next fiscal year (starting July 1, 2017) using DIR’s online public works contractor registration system. Registered contractors who fail to renew by July 1, but continue working on public works after that date will be subject to late fees and potential penalties. Contractors must be registered with DIR before bidding, being awarded, or performing work on public works projects in California. Using the online system, public works contractors can: • Register for the first time • Renew an active registration • Reactivate a prior registration • Securely pay the non-refundable $300 registration/renewal fee (and penalties if applicable) Contractor registration is active when the online registration form is complete, and the $300 registration/renewal fee is processed. Registration is processed within 24 hours, if paying by credit card. Early renewal is only available for public works contractors who are currently registered with DIR. Any contractor who fails to register before bidding or being awarded a public works project may be subject to a $2,000 penalty. Contractors who plan to bid or work on a public works project prior to July 1 must complete the registration process, including payment of the $300 fee, to register for the remainder of the current fiscal year. Once registered, contractors may then renew their registration for the following fiscal year (beginning July 1, 2017). This requires another renewal fee of $300. New features on DIR’s online registration system allow contractors to print out proof of registration, and verify the status of their renewal or application on the database of qualified public works contractors. A user guide with instructions is on the DIR website. Additional compliance information is available on the DIR Public Works pages. DIR encourages the public works community to subscribe to email alerts, in order to stay updated on public works topics, DIR’s press releases, and other departmental news.
