DOL Launches New Website for Wage Determinations

June 19, 2019

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) recently announce that after June 14, 2019, www.WDOL.gov will be transitioning to https://beta.SAM.gov, which will become the new website for wage determination data.

Features of the new beta.SAM.gov website include:

  • Search-based structure: Users may search for a variety of information including specific Davis-Bacon Act and McNamara-O’Hara Service Contract Act wage determinations. 
  • Learning Center with tutorial videos, tools, and other information to familiarize users with the new site.
    • Ability to filter and search for content in the Learning Center. Users will find links to Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) and Code of Federal Regulations citations for specific subjects via a Cross Index page for Contract Labor Standards.
    • The site features more FAR Supplements and other acquisition regulations than WDOL.gov.
    • A Transition Quick Start Guide will be available soon.
  • Create an account: By creating a beta.SAM.gov account, users may access certain features of the system only available to account holders. For example, users will have the option to:
    • Save previous searches.
    • Start or modify a Collective Bargaining Agreement.
    • “Follow” specific wage determinations and receive email alerts when changes or modifications are published.
      • Users will determine what to follow and the frequency of email alerts. 
  • Timeline and history of changes to wage determinations.

Employers can find compliance assistance resources from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division at www.dol.gov/WHD/foremployers.htm. Additional compliance assistance resources and answers to common questions regarding federal labor laws can be found at www.Employer.gov.
