AGC Releases White Paper on Impacting Davis-Bacon Wage Determinations
AGC of America has released a white paper discussing the impact federal and nonfederal contractors, as well as other interested parties, can have on the accuracy of Davis-Bacon wage determinations. The white paper, titled "Impacting Davis-Bacon Wage Determinations: A Guide for Contributing to the Accuracy of Published Prevailing Wage Rates in Construction", is available for download on the AGC website.
AGC created the white paper due to an influx of questions from AGC chapters and members regarding Davis-Bacon wage determinations. Some of the questions, which are addressed in the white paper, include how DOL establishes Davis-Bacon wage and fringe benefit rates, how to make a difference in the outcome of Davis-Bacon wage surveys, and how to challenge a Davis-Bacon wage determination once it has been published.
The white paper includes a web link to AGC’s NEW Construction Contractors Guide to Completing a Davis-Bacon Wage Survey: Why You SHOULD Participate & How. This pamphlet explains the importance of contractor participation in Davis-Bacon wage survey process, whether or not the contractor performs work that is covered by the Davis-Bacon Act. It also explains how Davis-Bacon wage survey data are used and provides detailed instruction for completing the wage survey form.
