3. Types of professional skills necessary for compliance with the rules:
Currently, a public works project which costs more than $30,000 (for a single-trade project) or $150,000 (for a multi-trade project) must obtain a prevailing wage rate determination from DWD and pay wages at those rates. This rule raises the limits to $32,000 and $160,000 to reflect the increase in construction costs since April of 1996. Under this rule, a local government with a public works project that costs more than $30,000 but less than $32,000 (for a single trade project) or more than $150,000 but less than $160,000 (for multi-trade project) will now not be covered by the prevailing wage requirement and will therefore probably experience lower wage costs on the project than it would have.
