The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Wilmington District is soliciting comments from the construction community about the potential use of a government-mandated project labor agreement (PLA) on federal Multiple Award Task Order Contracts (MATOC) to build unspecified projects in North Carolina and Virginia.
Both states recently enacted legislation restricting the use of government-mandated PLAs on state and state assisted projects.

Please provide survey responses via e-mail to Ms. Danielle Dinger (Danielle.firstname.lastname@example.org) by COB on Tuesday, December 17, 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.
