    On June 20, 2014, Governor Jerry Brown signed into law SB 854, a budget trailer bill that made significant changes to the administration and enforcement of Prevailing Wage requirements by the Department of Industrial Relations (DIR). Among these changes was the creation of a new Public Works Contractor registration program to replace the Compliance Monitoring Unit (CMU) and Labor Compliance Program (LCP) requirememts for bond-funded and other public works projects.

    The registration program began on July 1, 2014. Contractors and subcontractors submitting bids are required to be registered by March 1, 2015 and meet the minimum requirements using the online application before bidding on public works contracts in California. Application and annual renewals are completed online with a non-refundable fee of $300. The requirement to use only registered contractors and subcontractors on public works projects applies to all projects awarded on or after April 1, 2015.
