Is there a reason why this pilot program for IPpc90 references social equity within the operations and maintenance staff and not social equity within the project team?
Our project appears to comply with Option 1.
As a Washington state project with state funding, the contractor is required to hire at the state prevailing wage for all contracts. The state prevailing wage is higher than the prevailing wages determined by the Federal Davis-Bacon Act. As interpreted, this means that our project is likely to meet the 60% or more of the construction value requirement for option 1.
Additionally, all sub-contractors hired also have qualifying apprenticeship programs.
It appears that we are likely to maintain option 1 criteria.
Are there other states, or projects who have been able to document this credit due to state funding that prioritizes prevailing wage, and apprenticeships?
