USACE Issues PLA Survey for Kentucky Project

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) is requesting comments from the construction industry on the potential use of a government-mandated project labor agreement (PLA) for a large-scale school construction project in Fort Knox, Ky. 

The project will consist of constructing a new elementary school which would consolidate two old elementary schools. Comments must be submitted to Emily Jenkins at Emily.H.Jenkins@usace.army.mil by 1:00 PM (ET) on Feb. 11.

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.
