It is the policy of Pierce County Library System to use a competitive selection process of vendors to perform public works related projects.
When undertaking public works projects as defined in RCW 39.04.010, the Pierce County Library System will use a competitive process to solicit and evaluate proposals based on relevant factors established by the Library System, including, but not limited to, cost, but may use a bid process (lowest responsible bidder) if it is in the best interest of the Library System. Where the application of competitive procedures would lead to undesirable, uneconomical or impractical results, the District may also use alternative procurement methods for public works projects, such as use of design-build or general contractor/construction manager procedures, sole source or turnkey acquisition, or other alternative procurement methods permitted under State law.
In the alternative, the Library System may undertake public works projects using a limited public works process or a small works roster process, in each case, subject to the same procedures and cost limits as are established in RCW 39.04.155.
The Library System will comply with all applicable legal requirements regarding the payment of prevailing wages on its public works projects.
Revised Code of Washington, sections 39.04.010 and 39.04.155.
