BOISE, ID – The United States Department of Labor is conducting a survey of businesses in the building and heavy construction industries in Idaho to assist its Wage and Hour Division in establishing prevailing wage rates required by the Davis-Bacon and Related Acts.
Currently, the division collects data electronically and via data collection forms (WD-10s) and will continue collecting data until October 22, 2021. To be considered, all data must be postmarked or completed online by Oct. 22, 2021.
The survey covers all active building and heavy construction projects in all of Idaho’s metropolitan counties between July 1, 2019 and December 31, 2020.
The division has updated the survey’s timeframe since its initial announcement.
The DBRA directs the department to establish prevailing wage rates that are commensurate with the actual wages and fringe benefits paid to construction workers in the county in which the work is performed.
The more contractors and interested parties participate, the more precise the department can be in establishing prevailing wages and developing comprehensive wage determinations.
As a result of accurate wages and complete determinations, contractors are less likely to request additional classifications.
If you wish to participate in the survey or have any questions about the process or forms, please contact Sylvia Lee at (415) 241-3540 or Rose Huynh at (415) 241-3539 directly at the US Department Of Labor.
