Davis Bacon Statewide Residential Wage Survey Info

Federal Davis Bacon is requesting wage and project data submissions for any/all public and private work performed from Aug. 1, 2017 through July 31, 2018 on, or incidental to, residential projects (defined as) for the construction, alteration, or repair of single family houses or apartment buildings of no more than four (4) stories in height. This includes all incidental items such as site work, parking areas, utilities, streets and sidewalks.

Here’s the survey notice.

The results of this survey will be used for setting Indiana residential wage settings for the next 10 years, which means all HUD and other housing, apartment, dorm construction and incidental utilities.

Here’s the news release with details.

The Davis Bacon requested wage and project information can be submitted electronically or by mail.

Many Indiana contractors should have received this background letter from the Indiana Laborers.

The Laborers tell us that ABC of Indiana/Kentucky and other associations are attempting to get as much information submitted as possible, so they can get ABC wage rates set on qualifying projects.

Note: The Davis-Bacon and related Acts require the Secretary of Labor to determine the prevailing wage rates for corresponding classes of laborers and mechanics on projects in the area which are of a “character similar” to the proposed contract work to which the determination will be applied.
