The application of the Davis-Bacon and Related Acts to federal and federally assisted construction projects leaves many contractors uncertain about the requirements of federal prevailing wage laws and the consequences of non-compliance. Failure to comply puts covered contractors at risk of catastrophic consequences, from high-dollar penalties to debarment from future federal work.

Session 1 (beginner), on December 11th, is perfect if you are a new staff person responsible for federal contract compliance or you've been in your role for a while and need a refresher course. This presentation will provide an introduction to DBRA coverage and how to read and interpret a wage determination. The training will also cover DBRA compliance principles, Wage Hour’s investigative techniques, and the administrative process for concluding an investigation, including withholding contract funds and debarment.

Session 2 (advanced), on December 13th, will perform a deeper dive into the intricacies and unique challenges of the laws.
