Responses to NAVFAC Project Labor Agreement Survey for Hawaii Marine Corps Base Due March 7

From The Truth About PLAs, February 25, 2014

The U.S. Navy’s Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Pacific Acquisition Department is requesting comments from the construction community addressing a potential government-mandated project labor agreement (PLA) on a federal contract to build an aircraft hangar, parking apron and additional infrastructure at the Marine Corps Base in Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii.

Responses must be submitted via email to Norine E. Horikawa at norine.horikawa@navy.mil no later than 10:00 a.m. (HST) on Friday, March 7, 2014.

For more information or assistance responding to the PLA survey, contact TheTruthAboutPLAs.com here.

TheTruthAboutPLAs.com encourages the merit shop contracting community to respond to this PLA survey. Tell NAVFAC that government-mandated PLAs reduce competition, increase costs, and impede the economy and efficiency of government contracting.

NAVFAC and other federal agencies have issued more than 200 similar surveys requesting information about the potential use of PLAs on specific construction projects across the country as a result of regulations and federal agency policies stemming from President Obama’s pro-government-mandated PLA Executive Order 13502, which encourages federal agencies to mandate PLAs on a case-by-case basis for federal construction projects exceeding $25 million in total cost.

TheTruthAboutPLAs.com has taken the opportunity to respond to all PLA surveys as they are issued and encourages the merit shop contracting community to do the same. Responding with accurate and timely information is critical and effective at creating more work for qualified merit shop contractors and their skilled employees.
