(a) When the nature of the work by departments, boards, commissions, or conservancies within the Resources Agency, in the opinion of the Department of General Services, is such that its services in connection therewith are not required, it may authorize the carrying out of the project directly by the department within the Resources Agency concerned therewith if the estimated cost does not exceed five hundred thousand dollars ($500,000). This limit shall be adjusted pursuant to subdivision (b) of Section 10105.
(b) If the estimated total cost of any construction project or work carried out under this section exceeds fifty thousand dollars ($50,000), the Department of Forestry and Fire Protection shall solicit bids in writing and shall award the work to the lowest responsible bidder or reject all bids. However, the Director of General Services may authorize the Department of Forestry and Fire Protection to carry out work in excess of fifty thousand dollars ($50,000) under this section by day labor if he or she deems that the award of a contract, the acceptance of bids, or the acceptance of further bids is not in the best interests of the state. However, in no event shall the amount of work performed by day labor under this section exceed the sum of one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000). This limit shall be adjusted pursuant to subdivision (b) of Section 10105.
