Public Works Website Services

The California Department of Industrial Relations (DIR) Public Works team is preparing for the release of its modernized Public Works website services this summer.

This initiative is a major step forward in integrating our services into a comprehensive, user-friendly platform that will replace the following systems/website services:

  • Project Registration (PWC-100)
  • Public Works Contractor Registration (PWCR)
  • Certified Payroll Reporting (eCPR)

Updates to prevailing wage determination search are scheduled for later in the year.

Key Impacts

The new platform will significantly enhance the functionality and user experience for both contractors and awarding bodies:

Awarding Bodies will benefit from:

  • A simplified registration process for public works projects.
  • The ability to update existing registered projects.
  • A centralized dashboard to view all their public works projects.
  • Invite their entire team to join their awarding body account.

Contractors will be able to:

  • Add subcontractors to their public works projects.
  • View all their public works projects in a centralized dashboard.
  • Submit and edit eCPRs directly from their project dashboard.
  • Save employees and duplicate previous eCPR submissions to minimize redundant data entry.
  • Submit a single eCPR record for multiple weeks of non-performance.
  • Invite their entire team to join their contractor account.

Key Changes

This summer, the new platform will go-live with the legacy platforms (PWC-100, PWCR, eCPR) retiring.

Awarding body users will need to:

  1. Create a new user account (logins from the current applications will not work).
  2. Find their awarding body via a search.
  3. Request to link their user account with their awarding body.
  4. Approve requests from contractors to be added to projects for eCPR submissions.

Contractor users will need to:

  1. Create a new user account (logins from the current applications will not work).
  2. Create a new account for their contractor, inputting their PWCR number to ensure their registration status is maintained.
  3. Request to join projects to submit eCPRs (if not already added by awarding body).
  4. Prime contractors can also request to add subcontractors to projects.
