The Davis-Bacon Initiative (DBI21) was launched in the Spring of 2021 to engage in a comprehensive review of the Davis-Bacon program administered by the US Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division (WHD). By engaging with stakeholders and evaluating the WHD’s Davis-Bacon administrative policies, processes and practices, DBI21 is focused on fostering innovation and efficiency, while remaining transparent and accountable to workers and employers in the construction industry. DBI21 is developing a streamlined and user-focused approach that allows WHD to modernize its Davis-Bacon program to ensure that it provides the necessary worker protections to meet the demands of large infrastructure investments as well as reflect the needs of the modern construction industry.
