Certified Payroll/Prevailing Wage Reports:
A Practical Guide to Compliance
Presented by:

When a contractor makes the move from residential/commercial construction projects to government-funded construction projects, which have certified payroll reporting requirements, it can be overwhelming for the contractor, its office staff, and the accounting professionals who support them. This often complex requirement can lead to major problems, including non-approval of payment requisitions, denial of payment for change orders and claims, and contract termination.

This fast-paced, 90-minute high-level overview focuses on Federal WH-347 reporting requirements, which then can be translated to state-specific prevailing wage mandates. Certified payroll expert Nancy Smyth will explain the important details you need to know to comply with certified payroll requirements on your government-funded construction project. Don’t get caught in a prevailing wage nightmare; learn the ins-and-outs of certified payroll requirements, and get your questions answered!
