Suppliers provide products only. The majority of supplies Clark purchases are maintenance and construction materials utilized in construction and maintenance of our electric, water, and River Road Generating Plant (RRGP) facilities. Supplies are quoted, both formally and informally, if the cost is less than $60,000. Purchases in amounts over $60,000 are formally bid. By registering online your company will be included in both the quote and formal bid process for the Material and/or Equipment categories you selected.
PUBLIC WORKS CONTRACTOR (PWC) / SMALL WORKS ROSTER (SWR) REGISTRATION
The utility maintains a list of qualified contractors who are eligible to perform public works projects that cost less than $25,000 on the Public Works Contractor (PWC) Roster.
However, the majority of construction projects are processed under the Small Works Roster (SWR). If you can obtain a performance and payment bond for each projects total cost (up to $300,000), it would benefit your firm to apply for the following Small Works Roster as approved SWR contractors can perform work on both types of contracts.
On public works projects over $25,000 and less than $300,000, the utility maintains a roster of pre-approved contractors by type of work which are awarded through competitive SWR quotes. You are invited to complete the online registration, provide an acceptable insurance certificate, IRS W-9 form and sign and return the SWR contract document within 15 calendar days of registering online. After 15 days the registration will be denied. Notification of SWR quotes will be sent to qualified contractors through our online system and contractors may download the quotation documents and plans to utilize in preparing their quotes.
NOTE: Performance and payment bonds in the amount of 100% of the awarded contract price are required for SWR contracts - if you are not qualified for bonding up to $300,000, you will not be approved for the SWR roster.
Clark Public Utilities is a public agency and state law requires prevailing wages be paid to all workers involved in public works. In accordance with state law, the utility may not pay any contractor or subcontractor working on SWR quotes or formal bids until Statements of Intent to Pay Prevailing wage documents are received from the contractor and any subcontractor working on our projects. The Department of Labor and Industries website covers the process in detail.
