ABC Florida First Coast Chapter was chartered in 1993 and consists of more than 140 member companies representing thousands of Northeast Florida construction industry professionals.
The Florida First Coast Chapter serves Contractors, Subcontractors, Suppliers, and Associates in Baker, Bradford, Clay, Columbia, Duval, Flagler, Hamilton, Nassau, Putnam, St. Johns and Union counties.
The US Department of Labor is conducting a Davis Bacon Prevailing Wage Rate survey in Florida. They are soliciting payroll information on all federal, state, local and privately funding building construction projects active at any time between April 1, 2013 and March 31, 2014. Information collected during the course of the survey will be used to determine the prevailing wage rates to be paid on federally funded and assisted construction projects in Florida in the future. If your company bids any public work you run the risk of being impacted by this wage rate given that many municipalities adopt the Davis Bacon Wage Rates as their living/prevailing wage.
This opportunity to impact the federal prevailing wage rate does not happen often. This is a real and rare opportunity to have a say in how our industry is impacted by the Feds. ABC is asking all
contract members to take the time to participate in this important survey process.
