Although many contractors have not been affected by the Order because their workforces were earning above the required minimum rates, contractors should annually evaluate whether the increases affect their workforce, including anyone that may not directly work on a contract but does work incidental to a contract. Unlike some prevailing wage rules, the Contracting Officer does not need to take any affirmative action to apply the new rates. If the appropriate provisions are in the government contract, the contractor must comply with any future increase. If your workforce is affected by the increase, you may be eligible for a price adjustment.
