On August 25, the federal government added more mines to the minefield that is the federal construction marketplace. On that day, the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Council and U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) released a final rule and guidance, respectively, to implement the “Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces” Executive Order 13673, called the Blacklisting Executive Order (EO). Under the rule and guidance, both prime and subcontractors must report violations of 14 federal labor laws before contract award and again every six months after contract award, on federal contracts exceeding $500,000, among other things. Portions of this new rule take effect as soon as October 25, 2016.
