How To Find & Bid on Construction Jobs in California

The following free California construction bid opportunities resource has been put together by Surety First, Inc. to help contractors find and bid on construction projects in their local CA area/region. Our list provides bid opportunities available in all major California cities including San Francisco, San Diego, Los Angeles, and more. As a note, while many of the links below are managed by state agencies, these resources have not been individually vetted, nor are they endorsed by Surety First.

Construction bid opportunities are sorted by both region and city for faster viewing with general construction bid resources categorized at the bottom of this page.  The resources listed were selected to provide opportunities for contractors large and small.  Also, we are constantly updating this list so if you know of a helpful resource not listed, we’d love to hear about it.
