New Contractor Reporting Form for Off-Site Prefabricated Items

Contractors and subcontractors in Washington State who hire firms from outside the state to provide prefabricated, project-specific items for a public works project estimated to cost $1 million or more must begin reporting certain data about these contracts.

The Department of Labor and Industries has developed "EHB 2805 Addendum" to the Affidavit of Wages Paid form for fulfilling the reporting requirements.  Public works projects of the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) and local public works transportation projects are exempt from the reporting requirements.  Contractors and subcontractors who are found to have violated the reporting requirements more than once will be found not to be responsible bidders and may not be awarded public works projects.

For additional information about this new law, now codified in RCW 39.04.370, please click here to refer to my previous blog entries on the subject.
