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.
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.
