Three Examples Of The WDOL “Selecting SCA WDs” Process

Examples of the WDOL “SELECTING SCA WDs” Process to Select and Obtain SCA Wage Determinations

  1. Following are examples that show the sequences of questions and answers that enable the wage determination selection system to provide users with appropriate SCA wage determinations. The sequences are shown in these examples as they appear in the WDOL system for obtaining SCA wage determinations. Related "Wage Determination Sample Materials" are provided later in the "SCA Wage Determinations" chapter of this resource book.
    1. The first example shows a common sequence of "YES" and "NO" responses that take the WDOL user to a standard SCA wage determination.
    2. The second shows a sequence of "YES" and "NO" responses involved in obtaining a non-standard wage determination.
    3. The third shows the sequence for a "4(c)" wage determination.
  2. Following these examples is a copy of the blank e98 request form.

    NOTE: Wage Determination No. 2005-2521, Revision No. 4, dated September 26, 2007, was generated by WDOL in response to the answers, shown above. In response to the question "Were these services previously performed under an SCA wage determination that ends in an even number?" the user answered "NO." Therefore, the WDOL wage determination selection system provided an even numbered standard wage determination for the State/County identified by the user. As discussed previously, that wage determination has a "fixed cost" per employee H&W fringe benefit requirement.

    If the user had instead answered the same question "YES" the WDOL wage determination selection process would have provided, instead, Wage Determination NO. 2005-2522, Revision No. 5, dated September 26, 2007. The classifications and wage requirements listed are identical. The difference is that Wage Determination NO. 2005-2522, issued on the same date for the same State/County has an "average cost" H&W fringe benefit requirement, for which the method of achieving compliance may be very different, as explained elsewhere in this chapter and in the chapter of this resource book entitled "SCA Compliance Principles."

    This illustrates the importance of users responding carefully to the questions in the WDOL decision tree for obtaining SCA wage determinations for use in SCA contracts.

    The screen that would have led to the even-numbered wage determination - Wage Determination No 2005-2522, Revision 5, also dated September 26, 2007, for the same area was:
