Take the Survey: ABC Extends Deadline for Survey on President Biden’s PLA Mandate Policy to Sept. 23

by | Sep 14, 2022 | ABC | 0 comments

ABC has extended the deadline of an important survey of contractor members that seeks to gauge their opinions and experiences with government-mandated project labor agreements. The deadline has been extended due to the need for as many members as possible to respond to the survey. This feedback will be critical to providing effective, informed comments opposing the Biden administration’s harmful proposed rule that requires PLAs on all federal contracts of $35 million or more.

The Federal Acquisition Regulations Council’s proposed rule aligns with President Biden’s Executive Order 14063. Comments on the proposed rule must be received by Oct. 18.

ABC distributed the survey on Sept. 7. Please email Michael Altman at altman@abc.org to receive the survey link or if you have any questions. The survey will close at 5 p.m. ET on Sept. 23.
