Federal Project Readvertised Without Project Labor Agreement (PLA) Requirement

The U.S. Department of Labor has readvertised for bids on a $20-$50 million Job Corps Center in New Hamphire without a requirement that the successful contractor sign a Project Labor Agreement (PLA).  

Previous protests stalled project:  The project was originally bid in 2009 with a PLA requirement.  When a protest was filed the solicitation was cancelled.  The project was again advertised in 2011 with the PLA requirement.  In June 2012, after another protest was filed,the second solicitation was cancelled.
