MCAA has released the 2016-2017 edition of its Tool and Equipment Rental Guide. The guide puts the latest comprehensive cost recovery information for commonly used tools and equipment at your fingertips. The guide is free as a member benefit.
MCAA’s three-year effort to obtain a workable set of rules for the labor and employment legal compliance certifications of prime contractors and subcontractors on direct federal contracts/subcontracts of $500,000 or more were largely accepted in the final rules governing Executive Order 13673, Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces. The Administration released the final rules on August 24, 2016. The regulators accepted MCAA’s initial and consistently advocated position that the subcontractor’s legal compliance certification must be submitted and reviewed by the government agency (Department of Labor – DoL) rather than submitted to the prime contractor for its independent review prior to subcontract award.
MCAA hosted a new webinar on Tuesday, August 23 featuring Josh Bone, JB Knowledge’s lead researcher on the BIM to Field Software report. The MCAA webinar provides further detail of the 24 softwares that were evaluated in the third report from the Construction Technology Research Series.
