AGC Contacts Federal Agency Heads Regarding Movement of Recovery Funds
 

Last week, AGC CEO Steve Sandherr contacted 27 federal agency heads concerning the pace that Recovery Act dollars are flowing through the agencies and into contracts available for bid. With more than one million construction workers having lost their jobs over the past year, AGC expressed concerns that given the high unemployment rate that remains in the industry, it is ready to put the Recovery Act to work.  Read the letter here.

AGC made inquiries as to whether there are schedules for letting work that we can begin to publicize, whether there are impediments to getting the work on the street that we can work to eliminate, and whether there is any information that we can provide the industry so that contractors are ready to bid these important projects.

AGC greatly values its partnerships with the federal agencies and we look forward to continuing to be a resource as we work together to ensure the recovery of our economy. 

For more information, please contact Marco Giamberardino at (703) 837-5325 or giamberm@agc.org.
