Thank you for your interest in working with MBUSD on this important project.



Thank you to all the firms that responded to the District's request for proposals to provide auditing services. Upon completion of the evaluation process the District selected Moss, Levy & Hartzheim.  The Manhattan Beach Board of Trustees approved this selection at the March 1, 2017 public meeting.  For a full list of responders and additional information please click here. 
The District is prequalifying prime contractors and first tier electrical, mechanical, and plumbing subcontractors to perform work on District projects.  
As a condition of being awarded a contract, prospective developers and MEP subcontractors must complete a prequalification questionnaire and provide financial information to the District (the Prequalification Package).  Prequalification Packages are accepted on a rolling basis.
Once the prequalification process is complete, the District will notify developers and MEP subcontractors whether they meet the prequalification requirements.  Prequalification will be valid for one calendar year following the date of initial prequalification.  Developers and MEP subcontractors who are prequalified must update prequalification forms as their status or information changes.
The District will only enter into lease-leaseback agreements with Developers who have been prequalified by the District, and a developer/prime contractor may not use an MEP subcontractor that has not been prequalified by the District.
Developers and MEP subcontractors who wish to qualify must submit complete Prequalification Packages in a sealed envelope to:
Manhattan Beach Unified School District
