The Contractor shall post a copy of the DIR’s determination of the prevailing rate of per diem wages at each job site.  This Project is subject to compliance monitoring and enforcement by the DIR.

This project is partially funded by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA). Therefore, the successful Bidder shall comply with the reporting requirements mandated by FTA.  Said general prevailing rate of per diem wages and classification, if applicable, to said contract and work was adopted by the City Council of the City of Norwalk and is on file in the office of the City Clerk.  Attention is directed to the provisions in Section 1777.5 (Chapter 1411, Statutes of 1968) and 1777.6 of the Labor Code concerning the employment of apprentices by the contractor or any sub-contractor under him.  The Contractor will be required to submit weekly payrolls to the City of Norwalk to verify the above requirements.  No payments shall be made until the above requirements are met.  In performance of the terms of this Contract, the Contractor shall not engage in nor permit such sub-contractors as he may employ from engaging in discrimination in employment of persons because of the race, color, national origin or ancestry, or religion of such person.  Violation of this provision may result in the imposition of penalties referred to in Labor Code Section 1735.
