Existing law requires each state agency, on or before December 31 of each year, to make a review of all proprietary state lands, with specified exceptions, over which it has jurisdiction, to determine what, if any, land is in excess of its foreseeable needs and report thereon in writing to the Department of General Services. department.

If the onsite construction, alteration, and repair costs total $25,000,000 or more, the bill would require UC Davis to seek bids containing an enforceable commitment that all contractors and subcontractors performing work on the project will use a skilled and trained workforce to perform any rehabilitation, construction, or alterations work that falls within an apprenticeable occupation in the building and construction trades, as specified, unless the work is covered by a project labor agreement, as defined, that requires all contractors and subcontractors performing the work to use a skilled and trained workforce. housing, as described. The bill would require UC Davis to reimburse the department for all actual costs incurred as a result of the transfer, as described, and all actual costs related for early termination of specified contracts, as described.
This bill would also provide that if the Regents of the University of California have not begun a formal planning process within a year of the transfer or indicate that they will not use the parcel for its intended purposes, the parcel shall revert to the Department of General Services, department, and would then be reviewed to determine if the land is in excess.
