In reply to Solicitation Number N6247315R1609, comments are due no later than 2:00 p.m. (PDT) on 12 January 2015. Please address your response to NAVFAC Southwest, Coastal IPT, Attn: Matt Koontz, 2730 McKean St, Bldg 291, Naval Base San Diego, CA 92136 or email your response to email@example.com.
For more information or assistance responding to the PLA survey, contact us here.
NAVFAC and other federal agencies have issued more than 245 similar project labor agreement 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.
ABC 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 and effective at creating more work for qualified merit shop contractors and their skilled employees.
