This publication contains materials developed primarily for use in prevailing wage training seminars. The contents are designed to enhance the knowledge of procurement personnel and others whose responsibilities include work with the Service Contract Act and the Davis-Bacon and related Acts. Study of this volume should facilitate dissemination of information to those who are interested in the administration and enforcement of these laws. This publication is intended to provide practical guidance to procurement personnel and the general public rather than definitive legal advice.
