Disqualification means exclusion from bidding or otherwise participating in City construction contracts for a reasonable, specified period of time, commensurate with the seriousness of the offense or the failure or the inadequacy of performance, generally not to exceed three years. However, the City Engineer may exclude a contractor for an indefinite period for the doing of a wrongful or fraudulent act by the contractor resulting in another person being substantially injured, or for the conviction of a felony.
Suspension means a contractor has been disqualified from participation in City work for a temporary period by the City Engineer for any conduct which could result in a permanent disqualification. (Ord. No. G-2772, § 1)
