(2016-044 Feb. 3, 10) PUBLIC NOTICE OKANOGAN COUNTY SMALL WORKS ROSTER
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN
that Okanogan County invites contractors interested in doing business with Okanogan County to submit an application to be included on the Small Works Roster (SWR). The SWR is used for public works projects under Three Hundred Thousand Dollars ($300,000) as provided for in RCW 39.04.155. Interested Contractors must contact Okanogan County Department of Public Works either at 1234 A Second Avenue South, Okanogan, WA 98840, by phone at 509-422-7300, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or a SWR application. The SWR is used in the letting of contracts for such projects as repairs, improvements, remodeling and other public works projects in and around County owned buildings and facilities and for County road construction and maintenance projects.
During the month of February Okanogan County plans to purge the SWR of idle contractors. If you have previously completed the application before 2011 and have since been inactive in public works projects, then your information will be withdrawn from the SWR and will no longer be considered for future projects.
SWR work may involve Federal-Aid projects. The County of Okanogan in accordance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, 78 Stat. 252, 42 U.S.C. 2000a to 2000d-4 and Title 49, Code of Federal Regulations, Department of Transportation, subtitle A, Office of the Secretary, part 21, Nondiscrimination in Federally-assisted programs issued pursuant to such Act; hereby notifies all Contractors that it will affirmatively ensure that in any contract entered into pursuant to this advertisement, disadvantaged business enterprise as defined at 49 CFR, Part 26, will be afforded full opportunity to submit SWR applications in response to this invitation and will not be discriminated against on the grounds of race, color, sex, or national origin in consideration for a contract award.
Contractors and other service providers who wish to be included on the SWR must be a Washington State licensed and bonded Contractor and agree to comply with Washington State Prevailing Wage Law as specified in RCW 39.12. Prevailing Wage Law requires that a Statement of Intent to Pay Prevailing Wages and an Affidavit of Wages Paid must be submitted by all Contractors and Sub-contractors that perform any work that is defined as a “Public Work” according to RCW 39.04.010. The County may, upon request, require the Contractor or Sub-contractors to submit certified payrolls.
