Prevailing Wage Rate Schedules
Construction Contractors - Advisory
In accordance with the Funds contract documents and New York State Law, contractors and subcontractors are responsible for paying the prevailing wage rates as issued by the Department of Labors Bureau of Public Works annually.
Effective 07/01/2001, the State University Construction Fund will no longer issue Updated Prevailing Wage Rate Schedules directly to its contractors for "active" construction projects. The New York State Department of Labor now provides the updates on their Internet website.
The website is http://www.labor.state.ny.us/business_ny/employer_responsibilities/prevwage/3webwagetypestatus.htm, or call the Department of Labor at (518)457-5589. If you require additional information, call the SUCF construction coordinator assigned to your project.
Design Consultants - Advisory
Design consultants preparing bid documents for SUCF projects must use the New York State Department of Labors "Request for Wage and Supplement Information (PW-39)" form available at http://www.labor.state.ny.us/business_ny/employer_responsibilities/prevwage/3webwagetypestatus.htm in order to request a Prevailing Rate Case number and rates customized to their project. If you require additional information, call the SUCF design coordinator assigned to your project.
