    On a service contract, are Davis Bacon Act Wage rates to be updated just as the SCA wage rates are, when an option year/period is exercised??


    Answer

    According to Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 22.404-6(d)(2) If the contracting officer receives an effective modified wage determination either before or after execution of the contract modification to exercise the option,
    contracting officer must modify the contract to incorporate the modified wage determination, and any changed wage rates, effective as of the date that the option to extend was effective. 

    I recommend you review this with your
    policy and legal office.
