Payments to Contractors

The district shall make payment on any contract for the creation, construction, alteration, repair, or improvement of any public structure, building, or other improvement of any kind which costs over $5,000 based on estimates of actual work completed that have been approved by the Governing Board. The district shall not make progress payments in excess of 95 percent of the actual work completed and may include 95 percent of the value of material delivered or stored but as yet unused. The district shall withhold at least five percent of the contract price until the final completion and acceptance of the project. However, any time after 50 percent of the work has been completed, the Board may make any of the remaining progress payments in full for actual work completed if the Board finds that satisfactory progress is being made. (Public Contract Code 9203)

The Superintendent or designee shall ensure that requests for progress payments related to contracts for public works are processed and paid within 30 days. Any improper request shall be returned to the contractor within seven days, together with a written statement of why the request is not proper. (Public Contract Code 20104.50)

(cf. 3312 - Contracts)

Retention proceeds withheld by the district from payments to contractors for public works contracts shall be released within 60 days after the construction or improvement is completed. In the event of a dispute between the district and the contractor, the district may withhold from the final payment an amount not to exceed 150 percent of the disputed amount.
