The Davis–Bacon Act requires the payment of prevailing wage rates (which are determined by the U.S. Department of Labor) to all laborers and mechanics on Federal government and District of Columbia construction projects in excess of $2,000. This session will explore the applicability and most challenging tasks for federal grant recipients including Indian Tribes.
Attendees will gain a better understanding of the following:
- The regulations governing the specific HUD program to determine whether Davis-Bacon may or may not apply
- HUD’s program “triggers” based on project activity and type
- The essentials of proper staffing wage determinations, compliance, and reporting and recordkeeping requirements
- The potential budget impact of higher wages
