Do I need to set Common Construction Wages for a project that receives federal funding?

Unless expressly written in an agreement with the United States Department of Labor, projects using federal funding are not subject to Common Construction Wage.  The federal “Davis-Bacon” scale may take precedence.  Per IC 5-16-7-1, wages cannot be enforced by the Indiana Department of Labor on these projects.  Please consult your counsel.
