10.5 Equal Opportunity and Labor Standards

Labor standards and equal employment opportunity requirements for federally assisted construction must be specified in the information provided to potential bidders/offerors on contracts for construction services under NIH construction and modernization grants and major A&R projects and must be included in the resulting contract documents (see 45 CFR 75, Appendix II to Part 75-Contract Provisions for Non-Federal Entity Contracts Under Federal Awards). NIH construction and modernization grants and major A&R projects (and contracts under them) are not subject to the requirements of the Davis-Bacon Act, unless the authorizing statute for the program/award specifically requires compliance.
