    In preparing to negotiate the restart claim amount, should a new current davis bacon wage rate be incorporated, or would the original davis bacon wage rates still apply, since the rates are generally effective for the life of the contract.


    Answer

    I would continue to use the same rates, unless the contractor objects. If it does, I would listen to the reasons provided for the objection, including who is responsible for the 6 month delay. If the Government was responsible, I would consider updating the rates.
