ARRA and Davis-Bacon

Since 1931, Congress has extended the Davis-Bacon prevailing wage requirements to some 60 “Related Acts” which provide federal assistance for construction through loans, grants, loan guarantees and insurance. These Related Acts include by reference the requirements for payment of the prevailing wages in accordance with the Davis-Bacon Act. Examples of Related Acts include ARRA and the Head Start Act because both of these acts include the Davis-Bacon Act requirements by reference.

Because ARRA is a Related Act, then any contractors and subcontractors performing on any ARRA funded or assisted contracts in excess of $2,000 for the construction, alteration, or repair (including painting and decorating) of public buildings or public works must pay their laborers and mechanics not less than the prevailing wage rates and fringe benefits. Covered contractors and subcontractors are also required to pay employees weekly and to submit weekly certified payroll records to the federal contracting agency.
