Mar 14, 2013

The Davis-Bacon Act requires that the locally prevailing wage rate be paid to various classes of laborers and mechanics working under federally financed or federally-assisted contracts for construction, alteration, and repair of public buildings or public works.

To find the predetermined wage rate for any U.S. county, go to Wage Determinations Online. This online database is hosted by the U.S. Dept. of Labor. The schedule for future wage determination surveys is also available on this site.

Guidelines for NECA contractors responding to a Davis-Bacon Wage Survey request from the U.S. Dept. of Labor are available.
