The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) is soliciting comments from the construction industry on the potential use of a government-mandated project labor agreement (PLA) for a project at the New Mexico Cannon Air Force Base.

The project is within the Clovis Micropolitan Statistical Area, which contains Cannon Air Force Base, and will consist of constructing a two-story replacement medical and dental clinic, approximately 100,000 square-feet. 

Comments should be submitted to Kathleen Mayer, kathleen.mayer@usace.army.mil, by Friday, Feb. 22. For more information on the project, click here.

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.
