BUSINESS CONSISTANCY ACROSS THE COUNTRY Continuing efforts to provide more consistency between the regions includes: Uniform contract templates issued for each construction delivery method National PM training implementation Construction Contracting Officers Council Construction Excellence Council
PRE-APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAMS Davis–Bacon does not currently address this labor category GSA supports the idea of creating a vehicle for the recruitment and use of the under-employed and entry level worker Currently, this would be a Department of Labor issue and could require legislative changes.
GSA/DOL MOU on Affirmative Action We will be updating the 2000 agreement GSA does not expect any major changes in the agreement GSA understands the concerns regarding “burdensome” reporting requirements GSA will work to keep reporting reasonable.
