Disclaimer regarding the Davis Bacon Act in 2-230-60:
This section is currently under review by the Department of the Interior, Office of the Solicitor.
Please use the following text from the February 9, 2011 version of the Federal Assistance Manual for guidance on Davis Bacon
[Click on arrow to view text]:
    • 2-230-60 Do the Davis-Bacon Act and Contract Work Hours and Safety Standards Act
      apply to contracts supported with OSMRE funds?

      • A. SMCRA does not include a prevailing wage provision or require you to comply with the Davis-Bacon Act (40 USC 276a). Since there is no direct relationship between OSMRE and the contractor, we consider your contracts exempt from Davis-Bacon requirements. However, state law or administrative procedures, or other federal laws if you have other federal funds in your project, may require you to include a provision for compliance with the Davis-Bacon Act in your contracts.
      • B. The Davis-Bacon Act applies when OSMRE deals directly with a private contractor. We will include Davis-Bacon provisions when we award contracts directly for federal regulatory or reclamation programs.
      • C. SMCRA does not require you to comply with the Contract Work Hours and Safety Standards Act (40 USC 327-330). However, state law or administrative procedures may require you to include these provisions in your contracts.
