PCHA’s Purchasing and Contracts Department Receives Best Practices Award from the Florida Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials

The Pinellas County Housing Authority’s Purchasing and Contracts Department received a Best Practices Award from the Florida Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials for contractor education and outreach.

Competition in purchasing is good for business. When firms compete with each other, businesses, including housing authorities, get the best possible prices, quantity and quality of goods and services. In its efforts to increase the number of vendors and contractors responding to agency-wide procurements, PCHA’s Purchasing and Contracts Department implemented a workshop series to help contractors and vendors understand the bidding process and required forms, and to clear misconceptions.

The workshop series is entitled “How to do Business with PCHA”. “Contractors in attendance are also encouraged to attend a second workshop series covering Davis-Bacon Requirements to learn more information relating to the Davis-Bacon Wage Act and contract documentation requirements at PCHA” said Rhonda Allen, Director of Purchasing and Contracts.

The Educational Contractor Workshops help to bridge the gap between HUD/Housing Authority requirements, and contractor understanding and application of the requirements. “The workshops are both well-presented and well-received” said Debra Johnson, Executive Director. As a result of these workshops, competition continues to increase as new vendors are added to PCHA’s Master Vendor List, and fewer errors are noted in contractor submissions. Congratulations to PCHA’s entire Procurement and Contracting team!

PCHA’s next “How to do Business with PCHA” workshop for contractors is scheduled for September 19th from 3 PM to 5 PM. All vendors and contractors are encouraged to attend. To RSVP please email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Pinellas County Housing Authority to Hold Davis-Bacon Compliance Workshop for Contractors

The Pinellas County Housing Authority will hold a workshop for contractors on Thursday, August 15, 2013 regarding contractor compliance with the Davis-Bacon wage law. The workshop will begin at 3:00 pm at PCHA’s Central Office which is located at 11479 Ulmerton Road, Largo, FL 33778 and will cover the basic elements of Davis-Bacon wage requirements and enforcement.

Workshop participants will learn:

  • The basic requirements of the Davis-Bacon law
  • How to complete certified payrolls
  • How to ensure that your workers are classified properly and avoid costly mistakes
  • Requirements of the employee interview process 

 

The Davis-Bacon Act, as amended, requires that each contract over $2,000 to which the United States is a party for the construction, alteration, or repair of public buildings or public works shall contain a clause setting forth the minimum wages to be paid to various classes of laborers and mechanics employed under the contract. Under the provisions of the Act, contractors or their subcontractors are to pay workers employed directly upon the site of the work no less than the locally prevailing wages and fringe benefits paid on projects of a similar character. The Davis-Bacon Act directs the Secretary of Labor to determine such local prevailing wage rates.

 

There is no cost for the workshop and all contractors are encouraged to attend.
