DAVIS-BACON WAGE MODIFICATION

The United States Department of Labor (USDOL) issued a modification to the statewide (except Scott County) wage rate on December 15, 2017.    It implements the wages submitted to USDOL in January of 2017.  This modification was issued as IA 170001 12/15/2017 IA1.  The new specification number is IA17-1.0.

This new wage rate will be incorporated in the January 17, 2018 letting by addenda. Changes to pilot car and flagger rates resulting from the new wage rate will also be incorporated by addenda.

Because of the volume of addenda required it will take some time to issue all necessary addenda.  Please be reminded that contract documents are not changed, and this new wage rate not a contract requirement, until an addendum is issued for an individual proposal.


E-MAILING OF THE ELIGIBLE BIDDERS LIST HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED
Beginning with the October 17, 2017 Letting the Eligible Bidders List will no longer be distributed via e-mail.  Eligible bidder lists are available at no cost on this website. This information is found at both the letting and proposal levels in the "Also Available" box on the right side of the screen.  The Eligible Bidders List will be available after 1:00 p.m. the day before the letting. After opening the list, you may export a csv or tab file using the links located at the upper right of the list.

ALL QUESTIONS SUBMITTED THROUGH BIDX Q&A
If a prospective bidder, for a proposal for which the Department is accepting bids, is in doubt as to the true meaning of any part of the contract documents, the bidder may submit to the Contracts Engineer a request for additional information, explanations, or interpretations. The request shall be submitted to the Q&A forum at the letting website used by the Department. Questions should be submitted as early as possible so answers can be researched and posted. Questions submitted within two business days of the letting will likely not be answered. Interpretations may be in the form of an addendum to the contract documents. The Contracting Authority will not be responsible for any information, explanation, or interpretation from any other source.
