What is sb 293

What is SB 293?

  • Senate Bill No. 293 (Padilla) amends statutes relating to retention, prompt payment requirements for general contractors, notice by claimants on payment bonds on contracts entered into after January 1, 2012.

  • SB 293 sunsets on January 1, 2016, unless extended by the legislature.


How does sb 293 affect school districts

How does SB 293 affect school districts?

  • 5% retention on public works projects

    • Retention proceeds in excess of 5% of the progress payment/contract price are prohibited except under specified conditions. (Pub. Contract Code, § 7201.)

    • Existing law provides that the percentage of retention proceeds withheld cannot exceed the percentage specified in the contract between the public entity and the original contractor.

      • Current Standard: 10%


Complying with the conditions for retention exceeding 5

Complying with the Conditions for Retention Exceeding 5%

Retention may exceed 5% on specific projects where the governing body of the local public entity, or its designee, has approved or ratified by a majority vote during a properly noticed and normally scheduled public hearing prior to bid that the project is substantially complex and therefore requires a higher retention amount than 5%, and includes this finding and the actual retention amount in the bid documents.

(See Pub. Contract Code, § 7201(b)(4).)


Steps for complying with sb 293 conditions

Steps for Complying with SB 293 Conditions

  • Establish Criteria applicable to all school construction projects for determination of whether a specific project is “substantially complex”.

  • Delegate authority to make finding to Superintendent or Superintendent’s designee.

  • Adopt resolution at properly noticed, normally scheduled public hearing prior to bid.

  • Delegee makes finding whether specific projects are substantially complex based on the resolution .

  • Include the finding and actual retention amount in Notice to Bidders, General Conditions, Special Conditions, etc.

  • Board ratifies the designee’s actions when it awards or ratifies the contract.
