The Davis–Bacon Act of 1931 is a United States federal law that establishes the requirement for paying the local prevailing wages on public works projects for laborers and mechanics. It applies to "contractors and subcontractors performing on federally funded or assisted contracts in excess of $2,000 for the construction, alteration, or repair (including painting and decorating) of public buildings or public works".
The act is named after its sponsors, James J. Davis, a Senator from Pennsylvania and a former Secretary of Labor under three presidents, and Representative Robert L. Bacon of Long Island, New York. The Davis–Bacon act was passed by Congress and signed into law by President Herbert Hoover on March 3, 1931.
As of 2016, the act increases the cost of federal construction projects by an average of $1.4 billion per year.
We are certified SCCS with King County in Seattle for our Native American Heritage.
Our mission to support Alaskan Native tribes and other Native American tribes. Here's the list of some of the Project’s we bid on and the Tribe's we have proposed to work with and the types of work we are trying to do for the tribes.
The Akira-OCMI Team understands the special aspects of working on unique - and, often times, remote - project sites, as well as at Tribal locations throughout the Western United States. Specifically regarding the Umatilla Indian Reservation, located approximately 33 miles, or 50 minutes from Walla Walla, WA.
For the purpose of this project, we will use a bottom up approach to estimate cost for all work packages. A bottom up approach uses a detailed work breakdown structure and provides the most reliable and accurate result. Although a bottom up approach is more time-consuming and costlier, it is beneficial for tracking project spending at the most granular level.
