2015 Annual Prevailing Wage Survey

The Department is currently conducting its Annual Prevailing Wage Survey for state-funded construction projects. On January 7, 2015, the Department mailed out almost 2800 survey forms to contractors and various interested parties. The completed survey must be postmarked or returned no later than February 9, 2015 to the Department of Labor for the data to be used in the calculation of the Delaware Prevailing Wage Rates. On or before March 15, 2015, the Department shall publish its annual “Prevailing Wage Determination” which will be valid for a period of one year. For copies of survey forms for your use contact the Department at 302-451-3423. The Department is also offering and encouraging reporting the information electronically.
