Orange Book

The purpose of the Orange Book is to fulfill the need for uniform rules governing public works construction performed in Churchill County, Carson City, the Cities of Reno and Sparks, the City of Yerington, and Washoe County. Uniform specifications help to eliminate conflicts and confusion, lower construction costs, and encourage more competitive bidding by private contractors. The Standard Specifications for Public Works Construction book was first published in 1978 and it has proven to be an invaluable document to its users.
