- How To Interpret A GWD

Each wage determination begins with a cover sheet that defines its applicability by:

  1. The decision number.
  2. The number of the decision superseded, if applicable.
  3. State(s) covered.
  4. Type of construction (building, heavy, highway, and/or residential).
  5. County(ies), parishes, and/or city(ies) covered.
  6. Description of the construction to which the wage determination applies and/or construction excluded from its application.
  7. Record of modifications, including the initial publication date, modification numbers and dates.

The cover sheet is illustrated in the sample screen below.
