  2. What is the process for RFPs/Bidding on Jobs?
    • The University of California procurement policies and the California Public Contract Code (Section 10507, et seq.) requires that all purchases for goods and/or services involving an expenditure of more than $100,000 be competitively bid and awarded to the lowest responsible bidder meeting specifications. The lowest responsible bidder is determined on the basis of one of two methods: 1) cost alone or 2) on a best value basis.
