Important Notice to Architects/Engineers (A/Es):

 
UPDATE: The 2017-2019 Wisconsin State Budget (2017 Wisconsin Act 59) repealed Wisconsin’s prevailing wage laws. Effective September 23, 2017, state prevailing wage requirements on state building projects no longer apply. These changes take effect for projects advertised for bid after September 23, 2017. This change does not affect the Federal Davis Bacon Act requirements.

The 2015-17 Wisconsin State Budget (2015 Wisconsin Act 55) modified Wisconsin's prevailing wage laws. Effective January 1, 2017, the administration of state prevailing wage on state building projects will transition from the Department of Workforce Development (DWD) to the Department of Administration/ Division of Facilities Development (DOA/DFD). Prevailing hours of labor will be determined by Wis. Stats. 16.856(1)(e) and prevailing wage rates will be as determined by the U.S. Department of Labor 40 U.S.C. 3142 for publication in the applicable project bidding documents.




Doing Business with the State


A/E Consultant Selection



Important Notice: The 2013-15 Wisconsin State Budget (2013 Wisconsin Act 20) significantly altered the bidding and contracting processes for state construction projects. In summary, it created a mandatory pre-bid contractor certification program for projects over $50,000 and required that all projects over $185,000 are let through single prime bidding and contracting. Under the new single prime bidding and contracting process, the State will enter into a single contract with the General Prime Contractor (GPC) and the GPC will enter into subcontracts with the successful Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, and Fire Protection (MEP) bidders identified by DFD.

These changes in the law will impact A/Es working on DFD projects.  Please access the A/E News & Updates page for more information.
