Speaker:
Jeremey Nielsen - Director of Facilities, M&O

Submitting a Notice of Completion to the County Recorder Office is a requirement with all construction projects.

A Notice of Completion is then recorded with the County Recorder's Office for the purpose of giving public notice that the final payment will be made in 30 days. Public Contract Code Section 7107 says: Within 60 days after the date of completion of the work of improvement the retention withheld by the school district shall be released. Notice of completion for the following: Ward Field Grandstands. Contractor: GT Grandstands. Start Date: May 1, 2016. Completion Date: September 30, 2017. Original Contract Amount: $848,827. Final Contract Amount: $848,827. Retention Payment Due: $84,882.70 (provider chose 10% retention of the minimum 5% required).
