ODOT Contracts covered by the Oregon Standard Specifications for Construction are subject to prevailing wage requirements, see Contract subsection 00170.65.
THE CONTRACTOR IS RESPONSIBLE TO DETERMINE WAGE RATES AND TO BE IN COMPLIANCE. NOTHING ON THIS WEBSITE SUPERSEDES THE CONTRACT OR THE PREVAILING WAGES POSTED BY BOLI OR USDOL.
ODOT attempts to keep this web page current by:
- Checking the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries (BOLI) website for updates. The BOLI prevailing wage rates have generally been updated quarterly by BOLI.
- Checking the U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL) wage determinations website for Davis-Bacon Act updates. The USDOL prevailing wage rate updates have been updated as frequently as weekly by USDOL.
- Posting a link to the Davis-Bacon Act and BOLI wage rates (Davis-Bacon/BOLI combined Prevailing Wage Rates - below) that appear to apply to the bid opening date in question at the time of the posting. Prevailing wage rates for projects with both Davis-Bacon Act and BOLI are generally the rates in effect at the time of the bid opening.
- Posting a link to the BOLI wage rates (Oregon BOLI Prevailing Wage Rates - below) that appear to apply to the bid opening date in question at the time of the posting. Prevailing wage rates for projects with BOLI only are generally the rates in effect at the time of advertisement.
ODOT posts a project bid reference document that contains a Preliminary Prevailing Wage Rate (PWR) table, and if necessary, may later post revised PWR tables. Following the bid opening, a bid day version of the PWR table will be provided to the Agency Project Manager for ODOT’s use in validating the minimum wage rates submitted by the Contractor. ODOT cannot post bid reference documents within 48 hours prior to the bid opening and cannot post bid reference documents after the bid opening.
These prevailing wage rates are subject to change and often change weekly and quarterly on the first day of the quarter, or as they are otherwise updated by BOLI or USDOL. Bidders are responsible to monitor the BOLI website, the USDOL website, and this webpage for modifications and amendments up until the bid opening.
