On March 24, 2011, Senate Bill 78 was enacted creating a new Part 2.5 of the Public Contract Code (PCC) designated the California Judicial Branch Contract Law (JBCL). With certain exceptions, the JBCL requires that superior and appellate courts, the Judicial Council, the Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC), and the Habeas Corpus Resource Center comply with provisions of the PCC that are applicable to state agencies and departments related to the procurement of goods and services.
PCC 19206 of the JBCL requires the Judicial Council to adopt and publish a Judicial Branch Contracting Manual incorporating procurement and contracting policies and procedures that these judicial branch entities must follow. On August 26, 2011, the Judicial Council adopted the Judicial Branch Contracting Manual (Manual) to comply with PCC 19206. The effective date of this Manual is October 1, 2011.
