Coming Soon! Revised Davis-Bacon Wage Determinations for WAP
The Department of Labor (DOL) has revised the WAP Wage Determinations (WDs) for every state so that all areas are correct, and decisions made about appeals are included. This clean-up addresses several of the problems with the WDs issued in September. Most areas’ wages, however, remain unchanged. In addition to addressing appeals and fixing errors, the new WDs include instructions on how to address electricians and plumbers in the wage tables.
The new wage rates will be posted NEXT WEEK (Dec 21 or later) at the sites of both DOL and DOE. Review these revised WDs to prepare for any changes that impact your program, but do not make changes yet.
HOW THESE WILL BE IMPLEMENTED: Local Agencies are not allowed to use the modified WDs until the DOE Contracting Officer has amended your State’s grant to incorporate the modified WD and the State has subsequently amended its sub-awards to the local agencies. Until that time, the current WD rates must remain in effect.Roblox Hack Free RobuxRoblox Hack Free Robux
The DOE Contracting Officer (CO) will begin amending all 51 grantee awards to include the revised WDs the week of January 4, 2010. It is expected that the time necessary to flow-down these amendments to the local level of the Program will be approximately four weeks.
The DOE CO will establish an effective date in the future, probably no more than four weeks, for the amended grants; that is the date by which time all contracts and subcontracts must be amended to include the revised WDs to take effect. However, States that prefer to amend their contracts and subcontracts prior to the date established by the CO and begin implementation earlier may do so.
TRAINING WILL BE AVAILABLE SOON: DOE will host a web training in late January on all aspects of the WDs. The training will be posted on the WAP Recovery Act web page for those unable to attend the live session.
