Prevailing and Living Wages
Under the State Labor Law, prevailing wage requirements apply to public work projects and building services. Projects for construction, reconstruction or maintenance on behalf of a public entity are generally public work. Building services are defined as work associated with care and upkeep of an existing building (e.g., cleaners, gardeners and security guards) executed under a contract with a public entity, and which exceeds $1,500. City law establishes living wage requirements for certain types of contracts for building services, day care, Head Start, home care, food services, temporary workers and services to persons with cerebral palsy. All bidders on work subject to prevailing or living wages must pay applicable wage rates to be responsive.
Project Labor Agreements
In 2009, the City and the Building and Construction Trades Council signed Project Labor Agreements (PLAs) that cover specified new construction and the rehabilitation, renovation and repair of City-owned structures. All bidders on work subject to a PLA must agree to the PLA as part of a responsive bid. Subcontractors to be used by prime contractors on a City contract must also agree to the terms of the PLA to be approved.
Public Access Center
The Mayor's Office of Contract Services operates a Public Access Center that provides access to the VENDEX system, which contains extensive information about City contracts and contractors.
