The Davis Bacon Act of 1931 requires the payment of local prevailing wages and fringe benefits to laborers and mechanics on federal-aid projects.
Certified Payrolls must be submitted weekly to NCDOT by contractors and subcontractors on all federal-aid projects.
Payroll statements are reviewed for completeness and certification. Work classifications, hourly rates, overtime hours and rates, authorized deductions, fringe benefits and net wages paid are reviewed.
NCDOT has the authority to withhold funds from the contractor, as may be deemed necessary to pay employees of the contractor.
