CIFAC Network Nabs Non-Compliant Sacramento County
Sacramento County Department of Transportation is the first County to receive a “strike” under the new requirements for counties to declare and limit their self-performed roadwork that began in January 2013. A formal letter from the California Uniform Construction Cost Accounting Commission was issued to the County on November 13, 2013.
If an agency receives three strikes, they lose the ability to do increased work with their forces.
