The people I've met through AGC have helped me both personally and professionally. Every contractor needs those resources and those relationships. If you want to be successful, well then, you need AGC.
On December 9, 2010, AGC completed its two-day webinar on the Davis-Bacon and Related Acts: The Ins and Outs of Federal Prevailing Wage Law. With nearly 300 registered participants, the series helped many current and future federal construction contractors by providing information necessary to understand the specific requirements of the Davis-Bacon and Related Acts in a contractor-friendly manner.
The two-day event was moderated by Ezequiel Arvizu, corporate compliance and diversity representative for AGC member company Sundt Construction, Inc. Both days covered compliance principles for contractors presented by attorney Deborah Wilder, author of AGC’s new Davis-Bacon Compliance Manual – Third Edition and president of Contractor Compliance and Monitoring, Inc., along with Timothy Helm, DOL’s government contracts branch chief in the office of enforcement for the Wage & Hour Division. The webinar concluded by detailing reporting requirements, including the submission of certified payroll records and subcontractor reporting, as well as enforcement initiatives and investigative procedures, including practical tips for contractors during an investigation.
The webinar was pre-approved to offer three general recertification credits by the HR Certification Institute (HRCI), the internationally recognized leader in human resource certification.
