2021 Regular Session
Subject:
State Government
Bill Summary

Senate Bill 19-196, enacted in 2019, requires that a state agency (agency) specify a general prevailing rate of wages and other payments provided to employees (prevailing rate) in certain contracts for public projects, and it applies to state solicitations issued for projects (solicitations) on or after July 1, 2021.

For solicitations issued on July 1, 2021, through December 31, 2021, only, the bill requires that the agency obtain the general prevailing rate directly from the United States department of labor. For solicitations issued on or after January 1, 2022, the agency must obtain the general prevailing rate from the director of the Colorado department of personnel and administration (department).

For solicitations issued on July 1, 2021, through December 31, 2021, only, the bill requires that the agency keep a schedule of the prevailing rate on file for the life of the project. Beginning on January 1, 2022, the director of the department is required to keep a schedule of the customary prevailing rate in his or her office.

The bill also permits the department to include only solicitations issued on or after January 1, 2022, rather than solicitations issued on or after July 1, 2021, in its annual reports detailing the amount of apprenticeship training contributions paid.
