CSU Builders Risk Insurance Program

  • Design-Bid-Build
  • Design-Build
  • Construction Manager at Risk with Guaranteed Maximum Price

Project Administration Manual  

This Project Administration Reference Manual provides a condensed version of the Construction Management.

Procedures Manual, which contains the California State University (CSU) construction management policies and procedures that apply to a project. Each construction administrator (CA), project manager, inspector of record, campus representative, and design professional shall use this manual as appropriate during the construction administration of a project.

CSU Labor Compliance Program

The Trustees have implemented a labor compliance program only for projects funded from either of the following:

  • Kindergarten-University Public Education Facilities Bond Act of 2002 or 2004 (either Proposition 47 or 55), in which the contract starts on or after April 1, 2003, or
  • State-issued bonds such as general obligation or lease revenue bonds (Systemwide revenue bonds are not considered State-issued bonds), in which the contract starts on or after August 1, 2010.

The Department of Industrial Relations will not be administering labor compliance for these projects, instead, the Labor Compliance Unit, within the Construction Management Unit, in CPDC will do so. Perceptive Enterprises, Inc. is assisting the CSU with the administration of its labor compliance program.

NOTICE: For projects that are not funded from the aforementioned funds, the Department of Industrial Relations (DIR) will administer labor compliance.

There are more than 310,000 licensed contractors in the state, in 43 different licensing classifications. In addition to educating consumers about contractors and construction law, CSLB activities include administering examinations to test prospective licensees, issuing licenses, investigating complaints against licensed and unlicensed contractors, issuing citations, suspending or revoking licenses, and seeking administrative, criminal, and civil sanctions against violators.
