The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Nashville District is soliciting comments from the construction community about the potential use of a government-mandated project labor agreement (PLA) on a federal construction contract for rehabilitation and safety upgrades to Center Hill Dam in Lancaster, Tennessee.
The USACE has also issued a request for information (RFI) about this project independent of the PLA survey, which can be found here.
Please provide your responses to one or both RFI’s via e-mail to Heather Turner (email@example.com) no later than 8:00 AM Central Time (CST) on Thursday, November 14, 2013.
For more information or assistance responding to the PLA survey, contact TheTruthAboutPLAs.com here.
USACE and other federal agencies have issued more than 175 similar surveys requesting information about the potential use of PLAs on specific construction projects across the country as a result of regulations and federal agency policies stemming from President Obama’s pro-government-mandated PLA Executive Order 13502, which encourages federal agencies to mandate PLAs on a case-by-case basis for federal construction projects exceeding $25 million in total cost.
TheTruthAboutPLAs.com has taken the opportunity to respond to all PLA surveys as they are issued and encourages the merit shop contracting community to do the same. Responding with accurate and timely information is critical to creating more work for qualified merit shop contractors and their skilled employees.
