The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Los Angeles District is soliciting comments from the federal construction community about the potential requirement of a project labor agreement (PLA) on federal Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contracts to complete asphalt and concrete pavement repairs and new improvements at militarily installations at Edwards Air Force Base in Kern County, California, and other unspecified projects within the South Pacific Division (California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah and New Mexico).

For more information or assistance responding to the PLA survey, contact TheTruthAboutPLAs.com here.
USACE and other federal agencies have issued more than 200 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.
