Selecting The Proper Wage Determination(s)

The DBA requires the DOL to determine prevailing wage rates for inclusion in covered contracts based upon those paid to "corresponding classes of laborers and mechanics employed on projects of a character similar to the contract work in the civil subdivision of the State in which the work is to be performed, or in the District of Columbia if the work is to be performed there. . . ." (Emphasis added.)

A "wage determination" is the listing of wage rates and fringe benefit rates for each classification of laborers and mechanics which the WHD Administrator has determined to be prevailing in a given area (usually a county) for a particular type of construction.

Consider these three basic factors in selecting Davis-Bacon wage determinations:

  1. Location
  2. Type of Construction
  3. Current Wage Determination(s)
