    A contractor may appeal the Districts decision with respect to its request for

    prequalification, by giving notice to the District no later than five (5) business days after

    receipt of notice of its qualification status. Notice shall be sent to the address listed

    above, requesting a hearing and setting forth in general terms the basis of the appeal.

    The Districts Superintendent or his/her designee will convene an appeals panel for the

    hearing as necessary, and will conduct a hearing on the appeal no later than 5 business

    days following the Contractors delivery of the written notice of appeal. The hearing

    conducted by the District will be informal and is not an evidentiary hearing. At the

    hearing, the Contractor will be given the opportunity to present information and reasons

    in opposition to the Districts determination. The appeals panel will consider all

    evidence, information and arguments submitted by the Contractor relevant to the

    Districts determination, the Districts response to such evidence, information and

    arguments, and any other information the Director deems relevant.

    Within five (5) business days following the hearing, the District Superintendent or their

    designee, will provide a written decision whether the Contractor is qualified or not

    qualified. The written decision is the final determination of the issue, and the Contractor

    shall have no further administrative appeals.

    The procedure and time limits set forth above are mandatory and the Contractors sole

    and exclusive remedy in the event of protest. Failure to comply with these procedures

    shall constitute a waiver of any right to further pursue the protest, including filing a

    Government Code claim or legal proceedings. Unless a contractor files a timely appeal,

    the contractor waives any and all rights to challenge the qualification decision of the

    District, whether by administrative process, judicial process or any other legal process or

    proceeding. The District reserves the right to resolve appeals before or after bid opening

    or award of any contract. The date for submission and opening of bids for a specific

    project and any subsequent contract award will not be delayed or postponed to allow for

    completion of an appeal process.

    completed prequalification questionnaire and supporting documents, including financial

    statements, to the District. Omission of requested information, falsification of

    information, or failing to use the forms provided by the District may result in a finding of

    not prequalified. Any mechanical, electrical or plumbing subcontractors required for

    any Project must be prequalified pursuant to these prequalification forms and

    requirements, and all prime contractors must use prequalified mechanical, electrical and

    plumbing subcontractors. If a listed mechanical, electrical and plumbing subcontractor in
