Date: Monday, January 30, 2012 from 9:00AM to 12:00 Noon
Location: Caltrans District 3, 703 B Street, Marysville, CA 95901 in the Sierra Nevada Auditorium
Course Description: Evaluating good faith effort (GFE) and setting contract UDBE goals on construction contracts for Federal-aid projects. This session will examine the various factors used by Caltrans in determining the adequacy of a GFE, provide examples, and show how to properly document the decisions to accept or reject a GFE. In covering contract goals this class will examine what work can be subcontracted, how to determine the number of UDBEs available for this work, and how ultimately to determine a contract specific goal for a construction project.
Course Objectives: To better understand the factors used in evaluating GFEs and how to document these factors. To understand how to derive contract specific goals for construction projects by looking at work available for UDBEs and how that relates to your market area.
Who should attend: Prime and Sub-contractors, local public agency employees who evaluate GFEs of bidders and determine contract UDBE goals on Federal-aid contracts. This seminar is open seating, there is no need for a reservation.
