  • Good Day: My name is ____________ and I represent the Prequalification Unit of the Facilities Construction Contracts of the Los Angeles Unified School District. I first want to congratulate everyone for making this important commitment to participate in the Small Business Enterprise Construction Boot Camp. The District has several construction goals and objectives to meet in the very near future and we need your assistance to accomplish this task in securing highly qualified contractors to provide adequate facilities for our children.
  • Read Slide At the next slide, _________________ will begin taking you through the process of Informal or “Safety” Prequalification.
  • (See slide)
  • Intro: Name Unit Safety prequalification is necessary in order to perform ANY level of construction work for LAUSD, whether under a “Formal” or “Informal” contract. Many firms choose to become prequalified first for informal bidding because it is the simplest process to complete. After performing a number of informal contracts with us, these companies are in a good position to advance to formal prequalification as they build their business, and their relationship with LAUSD.
  • (second bullet) There are only four pages in the questionnaire that require you to fill in information. The rest contains instructions and references. Though the questionnaire is relatively short, more than likely you will need to get in touch with your WC carrier or broker and persons in charge of payroll and recordkeeping in order to complete.
  • Read Slide
  • If you are informally prequalified, we often send a courtesy fax to remind you about a month in advance that your prequalification is soon to expire. This is only helpful if we have your current fax number. Therefore, I recommend that you keep your prequalification notice so you will know when it is time to renew. We recommend that you submit your Informal Safety questionnaire for renewal 2 weeks prior to your expiration date.
  • (first bullet) Important! If your CSLB license is suspended, or expired, you will not be prequalified. (second bullet) Please make sure that the name you provide is the same as on your Cal contractor’s license. We will check the CSLB website to verify this information. If there is conflicting information, we will ask you to correct it.
  • (second bullet) If we check your license information on the CSLB and no workers’ compensation coverage is listed, then we will request an original WC certificate, even if you have no employees. Carrying WC insurance is an integral part of your contractual obligation for any projects you bid on with the District. If your CSLB license states that your firm is “exempt” because you have no employees, it does not matter to LAUSD, because that is a Contractor’s Board exemption, not a District requirement.
  • Read the instructions very carefully and please make sure all of the cells, spaces, and lines are COMPLETE unless that item does not pertain to you! If it does not, please indicate N/A (not applicable). 4 th bullet: The prequalification process often involves some “back and forth” exchange of information, which can delay the processing of your submittal. If we need clarification or additional documents we will fax you a Deficiency Notice asking for them. Please do not hesitate to answer a request for information from the FCC Prequal Unit. 5 th bullet: For instance, you are required by law to have a written Injury and Illness Prevention Plan for your firm. However, do NOT send it to us unless we ask for it. When we have finally received everything we need, you will become prequalified and we will notify you, usually by fax.
  • Note the separate instruction for Contractors and Subcontractors . If this prequal is for your firm to bid directly on informal contracts, submit the questionnaire to FCC. For Subcontractors, those firms that are not applying to the District, but have been hired by a Prime contractor to do subcontract work on District projects, it is the Prime contractor who prequalifies them, and the completed questionnaires go directly to the Prime contractor for processing. That Subcontractor questionnaire should be kept on file at the appropriate District work site. Today’s presentation presumes that you are applying for prequalification directly to the District on your own behalf to bid as a prime contractor on informal contracts. License: Enter your six-digit license # FEDERAL EIN / ID#: Federal Employer’s Identification Number. Also know as the Federal Identification or Federal ID #. Some also call it their “tax number”. It is a 9-digit number. Some small employers do not have a Federal ID#; it is acceptable to use the Social Security Number of the proprietor or majority owner. Company Name: must be the same exact wording as on your CSLB contractor’s license. LAUSD FCC Vendor Code #: If you have a LAUSD Vendor Code, put it in the blank. If you don’t, it is not a requirement for Prequalification at the time you apply. You will be assigned an FCC 4-digit Vendor Code upon submittal of the questionnaire, or when you request one in order to obtain the plans and specifications on a particular project coming up for bid. Street Address: This must be a real address, not a P.O. Box. Contact Name, Title, Telephone, Fax, Email: Give us the name and contact information of a person we can work with if we need information or additional documents from your firm. SBE, DVBE: If you are certified, check the appropriate box and attach the certification. Percentage of Work Self-Performed: There is no specific requirement. This is merely informational, to let us know if you plan to subcontract out some of your work, and roughly how much.
  • EMR = Experience Modification Rate (more on this later) INTRASTATE = California only INTERSTATE = other states Initials: only initial if you know that your firm does NOT have an EMR If you are self-insured: Self-insured does not mean that you pay for your own insurance. Self-insured means that you essentially function as your own insurance company. Very few firms (out of all employers) are self-insured because of the financial requirements. You must submit a certificate from the California Department of Industrial Relations and/or a copy of your report with the Questionnaire. Anniversary Rating Date & Rating Bureau File #: If you do not have an EMR you will not have either of these items either; Please indicate N/A. Name of Workers’ Compensation carrier: Name of your insurance company.
  • (2nd bullet) This multiplier is based on your claim history which will determine how much you will pay for your WC insurance. (3rd bullet) Your insurance cost is the base rate multiplied by your EMR.
  • Read Slide
  • The expected dollar value of claims is a mathematical projection, using standard formulas to project what your claim costs should be (based on the workers compensation class codes for the type of work your firm performs and the expected payroll amounts for each class code.) This calculation is performed by Insurance Actuaries. When calculating your EMR, the rating bureau will cover roughly the first 3 of the last 4 years (e.g. EMR for 2008 consists of the history of claims from 2004 to 2006, omitting 2007’s claims.)
  • Firms that generate less than $16,000 per year in Workers Compensation insurance premiums typically do not have an EMR. Neither do firms that are new and have no Workers’ Compensation history. If you don’t have an EMR it does not disqualify you, but we will ask you for additional documents.
  • Read Slide

  • JOE!
  • (third bullet) If your EMR is above 1.00, processing of your submittal will cease, you will be asked to produce additional documentation related to your WC claims and safety policies and procedures. You may receive a Letter of Concern and then you may request an Administrative Review at which we will further examine the reasons for the high EMR. The review panel will make a determination, which may possibly include waiving this requirement temporarily or may result in your company’s disqualification.
  • Now we turn to Section B: OSHA/Lost Workday Incidence rates, and we begin by identifying the correct NAICS code. NAICS = North American Industrial Classification System. Please select the NAICS code that best describes the predominant tasks performed by your company. (e.g. if you have a license consisting of both C-20 (HVAC) & C-33 (Painting) classifications, but most of your work consists of HVAC, then please select the NAICS code 23822, for plumbing, heating, and a/c.
  • If you don’t know your firm’s NAICS Code, look at the chart in the Instructions Section of the Questionnaire – page 7 Select the one code that best describes the work your firm performs, or will perform, for LAUSD. Your Questionnaire won’t be processed without it. The code is needed to evaluate your firm’s rates against the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) average for comparable contractors.

  • This is the page where you will calculate your injury incidence rates. Soon you will see what this looks like when it’s filled in. But first, let’s talk about what the rates mean and how to perform the calculations.
  • The formula that we are about to show you was not made up by LAUSD. The US Dept of Labor - Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) established this formula long ago. It’s been used for decades and is the standard formula for everyone!
  • Read Slide
  • Read Slide
  • Remember that you are using the number of CASES for each calculation - not the number of lost or restricted workdays!
  • Here is an example of a General Building contractor (notice the NAICS code): This company has 14 employees, most of them working full-time schedules. Compare the 2005 incidence rates to the BLS table in the scoring instructions of the questionnaire. (The table on page 7 of the questionnaire) Note that #2, the “Total Case Incidence Rate,” is the sum of Lost Workday, and No Lost Workday rates for any given year.
  • Read Slide
  • Section C is found on the top of page 4 of the questionnaire. Don’t forget to check ‘yes’ or ‘no.’ If the answer is “No” you don’t need to fill in the table.
  • Violations classified as “general” or “other” will not be considered.
  • Basically, we want to make sure that a lesson was learned as a result of the citation & that the same mistakes won’t be repeated!
  • This is a portion of Section D. There are a total of 16 “Yes/No” Questions such as these. Notice that each question is weighted (point value) based on its relative importance. A maximum total of 100 points is possible.
  • (third bullet) Take a look at pgs 3 & 4. Notice that the codes are listed next to the questions. If you have any questions regarding any one of these, please look up the code for clarification.
  • You must have at least 85 points to pass under Section D. If not, you will be asked to provide evidence that you have corrected enough of the missing items (that were originally marked “no”) in order to bring the score up to a passing point. Also note that there are certain items which are mandatory, regardless of how many total points you have. These are generally the most important, highest point value questions. They are: questions 1, 6, 7, 8, 11, 16, and 17. Please answer ALL questions honestly!
  • Read Slide
  • This concludes the Safety Prequalification presentation. Does anyone have any questions? If there are no further questions, _________ will now present the Formal Prequalification process.
  • Read slide
  • Must have a Current and Active CSLB License in good standing. If it is suspended, or expired, you will not be approved. Obtain the latest version of the Prequalification Questionnaire (A, B, or C) from the Facilities website @ , or by calling the Facilities Construction Contracts office @ (213) 207-2300 then select 4 to reach the Prequalification Unit. For formal contracts bidding, the Safety Questionnaire must be submitted together with the Prequalification Questionnaire as a package. Obtain Safety approval and meet all requirements of the Prequalification process. (District projects require an Experience Modification Rate (EMR) of no higher than 1.50, and the recordable injury/illness rate and average lost work rate for the most recent 3-yr period must not exceed the applicable statistical standards for its business category as published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.) Submit the completed questionnaire along with original letters of bondability and bank letter, corporate information and notarized signatures, Insurance Certificates and References for projects completed within the 36-month period prior to submittal of the questionnaire. All references supplied must be at least equal to the size and contract amount of the projects that you wish to bid on for the District and must reflect the type and size project that has previously been bonded by your surety company. Submit a current reviewed or audited financial as required in the A Questionnaire. This financial must be prepared by an independent CPA, not in the regular employment of the company, and a Compilation is not acceptable. Prequalification is valid for one (1) calendar year beginning on the day following Facilities Construction Contracts’ written notice that the prospective bidder has received prequalification approval, provided that during such time the contractor remains in good standing with all District requirements and/or has not been deemed a nonresponsible bidder.
  • The third option, Category C also has two options: (see slide) Level I. Prospective bidders with no public works experience; or those that have completed less than two (2) public works contracts; or those that have completed informal LAUSD “B” Letter contracts, whose combined total equals $100,000, as a general/prime contractor. For this category, once you receive approval, you will be limited up to $350,000 per bid, but once the requirements for the A Category (a $7 million NEW construction contract performed as a prime), or B Category (2 public works contracts performed as the prime) are obtained, you may upgrade your bid rating to the single bond limit as assigned by your surety company. OR Level II. “SPECIALTY CONTRACTORS” who generally function as a subcontractor, but who wish to bid as the prime on formal District contracts, and have completed less than two (2) public works contracts as a general/prime contractor (Level I.) LAUSD/District informal “B” Letter Contracts, whose combined total equals $100,000, and receive an average total score of 140 points, and the Safety Evaluation form for each project and receive no more than one (1) “no” answers; For this category, once you receive approval on Level I, you will be limited up to $350,000 per bid, OR (Level II.) “SPECIALTY CONTRACTORS” who generally function as a subcontractor, but who wish to bid as the prime on formal District contracts in your specialty, must provide Subcontractor References for contracts the same size and type they wish to qualify to bid upon, Complete Part IV (Page 12) for no public works experience, or Pages 8-11 for public works Prime or Subcontractor references. If approved by this method (Category C, Level II), the prequalification limits and maximum dollar amounts for bidding are determined by the bonding company, as well as the experience level and license type of the Specialty Contractor.
  • Level II. - “License Type-Specific SPECIALTY CONTRACTORS” who wish to bid as the prime on formal District contracts, and will provide subcontractor reference evaluations - Submit 2 public works references on the Performance and Safety Evaluation forms, completed by the owners or by the primes of the projects, All project references submitted must have been completed within the last 36-month period preceding the FCC time stamped submission date of this questionnaire. Receive an average, minimum score of 140 points on the Performance Evaluations and no more than 1 negative response on any Safety Evaluation, and Meet all general & safety requirements under this category. If approved by this method, the prequalification limits and maximum dollar amounts for bidding are determined by the bonding company, as well as the experience level and license type of the Specialty Contractor.
  • The second Category B has two options for prospective bidders who have completed two (2) or more public works contracts within the past 3-year period. We have split the “B” Category to include : Level I. - Prospective bidders with at least two (2) public works contracts experience as a general/prime contractor - Submit 2 public works references on the Performance and Safety Evaluation forms, completed by the owners of the projects; or
  • There are three Categories in which contractors can pre-qualify to bid on formal public works contracts. The first is Category A for prospective bidders interested in bidding on new construction projects estimated at $5 million and above. They must provide and meet the following approval…(see slide)

    12. 12. Insurance InformationInsurance Information Section A
    13. 13. The Experience Modification Rate (EMR) is a multiplier based on your firm’s Workers’ Compensation loss claim history that causes your insurance premiums to go up, or down. It impacts the cost of your firm doing business. Base Rate x EMR = Your insurance cost What is the EMR?What is the EMR?
    14. 14. Where does EMR come from?Where does EMR come from? The EMR is not calculated by your insurance broker or carrier. • California (intrastate) EMRs are calculated by the WCIRB (Workers Compensation Insurance Rating Bureau). • Interstate EMRs are calculated by NCCI (National Council on Compensation Insurance).
    15. 15. In simple terms, the EMR is a ratio of actual claims dollars incurred by your firm compared to the industry average value for firms that do the same kind of work you do. ◦ Good history causes it to go down. ◦ Adverse history causes it to rise. It is desirable to have an EMR < 1.0. ◦ 1.0 is considered to be “average”.
    16. 16. If you DON’T have an EMR:If you DON’T have an EMR: You must provide copies of your firm’s Workers’ Compensation Loss Runs for each of the last three years, along with your questionnaire. Contact your Insurance Carrier or Broker to obtain your Loss Runs. If you are a brand new company you will have neither an EMR nor loss runs. Please note this in writing on the questionnaire.
    17. 17. What the EMR means to you:What the EMR means to you: Let’s say you, Fred, are bidding against Joe and Bob. ◦ Your EMR is 1.0, ◦ Joe’s is 0.5, and ◦ Bob’s is 2.0.
    18. 18. Let us also assume that your bids are identical with respect to time, material and labor hours, and include $10,000 as the manual (base) rate for Workers’ Comp. ◦ Your insurance would cost you $10,000. ◦ Joe would pay $5,000 for the same insurance. ◦ Bob would pay $20,000 for the same insurance.
    19. 19. Who gets the job? ◦ JOE! Who says safety doesn’t pay?
    20. 20. You can learn what your EMR is (if you have one) by contacting your Workers’ Compensation Insurance carrier. We will verify your answers. Applicant may be disqualified if either its (a) current EMR, or (b) average EMR for the most recent three-year period, is above 1.00, in which case, the District will determine, based on information submitted, whether Applicant has satisfied the requirements of Section A.

    23. 23. Incidence Rates...Incidence Rates... …are based on employee injuries and illnesses and total company man-hours per CALENDAR YEAR, not insurance policy year. They: ◦ are not based on OSHA inspections or citations/violations. ◦ can be computed for every contractor EVEN IF THERE ARE NO OSHA ‘RECORDABLE’ CASES.
    24. 24. A work-related injury or illness must be recorded if it resulted in: ◦ Death or dismemberment ◦ Loss of consciousness ◦ Days away from work ◦ Restricted work activity or job transfer ◦ Medical treatment beyond first aid Specific information on how to evaluate whether an incident is to be considered OSHA recordable can be found at
    25. 25. Refer to your OSHA 300 Logs and/or your Loss Runs and injury/illness records to determine the number of injury cases you have incurred. Company hours is the total sum of all work hours by all employees (including those of a sole proprietor/owner) for the calendar year. Complete all information in this section of the questionnaire!

    26. 26. The formula used to calculate the incidence rates was established by the U.S. Department of Labor - Bureau of Labor Statistics. ◦ It’s been around for decades – it’s THE standard formula for everyone. Calculating YourCalculating Your Incidence RatesIncidence Rates
    27. 27. Your rates are compared against the national average rates for your NAICS code. See Table 1 at When an employer calculates the company’s rates, the answer is a rate of incidents (injuries) per 200,000 hours (100 people working 8 hours a day, 50 weeks a year) - regardless of how many hours the contractor worked!
    28. 28. In 2006, a company has 1 OSHA recordable injury which did not involve lost workdays. The company worked 30,000 hours that year. ◦ The Total Case Incidence Rate is: (1 x 200,000) / 30,000 = 6.7 ◦ The Lost Workday Case Incidence Rate is: (0 x 200,000) / 30,000 = 0 ◦ The No Lost Workday Case Incidence Rate is: (1 x 200,000) / 30,000 = 6.7 Sample rate calculations:Sample rate calculations:
    29. 29. A company has 4 OSHA recordable injuries in a 2008. Three cases were lost-workday injuries. One case did not involve lost workdays. The company worked 30,000 hours that year. ◦ The Total Case Incidence Rate is: (4 x 200,000) / 30,000 = 26.7 ◦ The Lost Workday Case Incidence Rate is: (3 x 200,000) / 30,000 = 20 ◦ The No Lost Workday Case Incidence Rate is: (1 x 200,000) / 30,000 = 6.7
    30. 30. If you are a new firm, please add a note on your forms that informs us of this. A new firm will be expected to have very few, or possibly no, company hours. We will verify this by checking the effective date of your Contractor’s License.
