APWA Accreditation

The Alameda County Public Works Agency has successfully been re-accredited by the American Public Works Association (APWA).

The APWA Accreditation program recognizes public works agencies that go beyond the requirements of the management practices established nationally in the public works industry. During the re-accreditation process, the Public Works Agency was found to be in full compliance in all categories reviewed. Two of the Public Works Agency's programs, Rate Setting and Equipment Specifications, and Bid Review, were recognized for exceptional model practices that should be adopted by other public works agencies.

When the Public Works Agency was originally accredited in 2012, it was only the 8th agency in California to receive the Accreditation award, and the 79th in the nation. Maintaining the accreditation status requires an organization to be reevaluated and granted re-accreditation every four years.
