USACE Issues PLA Survey for Project in Washington

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) has issued a survey requesting comments from the construction industry on the potential use of a project labor agreement (PLA) for the Design/Bid/Build construction of a 1,200-member Army Reserve Center at Fort Lewis, Wash. 

All ABC members and construction professionals are encouraged to respond to the request for information and tell USACE that government-mandated PLAs harm competition, increase costs, and impede the economy and efficiency of government contracting. 

Comments must be submitted to sarah.k.ignacio@usace.army.mil by 1 p.m. (EST) on Friday, Nov. 23. 

ABC National has taken the opportunity to respond to all PLA surveys as they are issued and encourages its members to do the same. For assistance with responding to the survey, contact ABC’s Director of Federal Procurement and Labor Affairs Ben Brubeck, brubeck@abc.org
