DAVIS-BACON WAGE MODIFICATION - 2

A typographical error has been discovered in the wage rate spec IA18-29.0 mentioned below. The base rate for Laborers, Group C in Zones 1, 2, & 3 was mistakenly listed as $17.62 per hour.  It should be $17.65 per hour.

This will be corrected by addenda with a new specification IA18-29.0a.  Note the lowercase "a" appended to the specification number to distinguish this new document. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Because of the number of addenda required it will take some time to issue all of them.  Please be reminded that contract documents are not changed, and this new wage rate not a contract requirement, until an addendum is issued for any proposal.

DAVIS-BACON WAGE MODIFICATION

The United States Department of Labor (USDOL) issued a modification to the statewide (except Scott County) wage rate on May 11, 2018.    It implements the wages submitted to USDOL in April of 2018.  This modification was issued as IA IA180029 05/11/2018 IA29.  The new specification number is IA18-29.0.

This new wage rate will be incorporated in the June 19, 2018 letting by addenda. Changes to pilot car and flagger rates resulting from the new wage rate will also be incorporated by addenda.

Because of the number of addenda required it will take some time to issue all of them.  Please be reminded that contract documents are not changed, and this new wage rate not a contract requirement, until an addendum is issued for any proposal.

The USDOL expects to issue another modification to this wage rate on June 1, 2018.  This is intended only to clarify that Scott County is excluded from this specific rate document.  This modification is expected tobe implemented in the July 17, 2018 letting as Specification IA18-29.1.  Addenda are not expected to be necessary for this modification.
