Public Works Contractor Registration Program
Senate Bill 854, signed into law June 20, 2014, became effective immediately. It established a new public works contractor registration program which will collect fees to fund compliance monitoring and enforcement, determine prevailing wage and public works coverage and hear enforcement appeals.
All contractors and subcontractors intending to bid or perform work on public works projects will be required to register for the program, and annually renew online. The cost to register for the program is $300 paid to the DIR and is non-refundable.
