SCA Wage Determinations Format

SCA Wage Determinations Format

  1. Under the SCA, wage determinations are developed and issued for covered service contracts in the United States, including the District of Columbia, and certain territories.
  2. Standard wage determinations> (sometimes referred to as "area-wide wage determinations"), have been issued since 1994 for specific locations. Each lists nearly 300 standard occupations defined in the SCA Directory of Occupations.
    1. The WHD updates these wage determinations as wage survey data become available for the many geographic localities that comprise the geographic scope of the SCA.
  3. "Non-standard" prevailing wage determinations are issued for specific contracts or types of contracts and may be based on different data sources that may be industry specific and/or often cover different geographic areas that may be either narrower or broader than the standard wage determinations.
  4. Section 4(c) Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) "Successorship" Wage Determinations reflect a predecessor contractor's CBA wage rates and fringe benefits and are issued only when certain criteria are met.
  5. Depending on the scope of work required by a specific contract, multiple wage determinations may need to be incorporated into a contract - e.g., a standard wage determination, non-standard and/or 4(c) wage determinations, determinations for multiple locations if the contract will be performed in multiple locations, and under certain circumstances (as discussed elsewhere in this resource book) a Davis-Bacon wage determination, as well.
