This website provides a single location for federal contracting officers to use in obtaining appropriate Service Contract Act (SCA) and Davis-Bacon Act (DBA) wage determinations (WDs) for each official contract action. The website is available to the general public as well. Guidance in selecting WDs from this website is provided in the WDOL.gov User’s Guide.
Alternatively, the WDOL.gov Program also provides contracting officers direct access to the Department of Labor’s (DOL’s) “e98” website to submit a request for SCA WDs for use on official contract actions. In some instances, the WDOL.gov Program will not contain the appropriate SCA WD, and contracting officers will be directed to use DOL’s e98 website in order to obtain the required SCA WD. DOL will provide the contracting officer with an SCA WD through the e98 system.
Questions pertaining to the application of contract labor standards or the selection of appropriate WDs for specific contract actions should be referred to the contracting officer or to the designated agency labor advisors. Questions pertaining to this website may be referred to the WDOL.gov Webmaster.
The WDOL.gov Program and the User’s Guide does not relieve the contracting officer or other program user of the requirement to carefully review the contract or solicitation, federal acquisition regulations, and/or DOL regulations related to these actions.
Where the contracting officer selects a SCA or DBA WD using the WDOL.gov Program and DOL later determines, whether before or after contract award, that the appropriate SCA or DBA WD was not incorporated in a covered contract, the contracting officer, within 30 days of notification by DOL, shall include in the contract the applicable WD issued by DOL.
