The word "subtreasuries" in the 6th complete paragraph on p. 614

of section 1 of the Act of July 1, 1898 (ch. 546, 30 Stat. 614), is

omitted because section 1 (words in par. under heading "Independent

Treasury") of the Act of May 29, 1914 (ch. 214, 41 Stat. 654)

discontinued subtreasuries. The word "post-offices" in section 1 is

omitted because section 1 of Executive Order No. 6166 (eff. June

10, 1933) transferred administration of post office buildings to

the Post Office Department. The words "courthouses, customhouses,

"Federal Works Administrator" because of sections 301 and 303,

respectively, of Reorganization Plan No. I of 1939 (eff. July 1,

known as the "Prohibition of Cigarette Sales to Minors in Federal

Buildings and Lands Act", required the Administrator of General

Services and the head of each Federal agency to promulgate

regulations, to be reported to Congress, prohibiting the sale of

tobacco products in vending machines or distribution of free

samples of tobacco products located in or around any Federal

building under the jurisdiction of the Administrator or agency

head, and provided that the appropriate congressional committees

would promulgate regulations prohibiting tobacco sales in vending

Commitment Made. - When the Government has taken or may take title

to real property during a condemnation proceeding and in advance of

final judgment in the proceeding and has become irrevocably

committed to pay the amount ultimately to be awarded as

compensation, and the Attorney General believes that title to the

property has been vested in the Government or that all persons

having an interest in the property have been made parties to the

proceeding and will be bound by the final judgment, the Government

may expend amounts appropriated for that purpose to demolish

existing structures on the property and to erect public buildings

or public works on the property.

Sec. 3131. Bonds of contractors of public buildings or works

-STATUTE-

(a) Definition. - In this subchapter, the term "contractor" means

a person awarded a contract described in subsection (b).

(b) Type of Bonds Required. - Before any contract of more than

$100,000 is awarded for the construction, alteration, or repair of

any public building or public work of the Federal Government, a

person must furnish to the Government the following bonds, which

become binding when the contract is awarded:

(1) Performance bond. - A performance bond with a surety

satisfactory to the officer awarding the contract, and in an

amount the officer considers adequate, for the protection of the

Government.

(2) Payment bond. - A payment bond with a surety satisfactory

to the officer for the protection of all persons supplying labor

and material in carrying out the work provided for in the

contract for the use of each person. The amount of the payment

bond shall equal the total amount payable by the terms of the

contract unless the officer awarding the contract determines, in

a writing supported by specific findings, that a payment bond in

that amount is impractical, in which case the contracting officer

shall set the amount of the payment bond. The amount of the

payment bond shall not be less than the amount of the performance

bond.

(c) Coverage for Taxes in Performance Bond. -

(1) In general. - Every performance bond required under this

section specifically shall provide coverage for taxes the

Government imposes which are collected, deducted, or withheld

from wages the contractor pays in carrying out the contract with

respect to which the bond is furnished.

(2) Notice. - The Government shall give the surety on the bond

written notice, with respect to any unpaid taxes attributable to

any period, within 90 days after the date when the contractor

files a return for the period, except that notice must be given

no later than 180 days from the date when a return for the period

was required to be filed under the Internal Revenue Code of 1986

(26 U.S.C. 1 et seq.).

(3) Civil action. - The Government may not bring a civil action

on the bond for the taxes -

(A) unless notice is given as provided in this subsection;

and

(B) more than one year after the day on which notice is

given.

(d) Waiver of Bonds for Contracts Performed in Foreign Countries.

- A contracting officer may waive the requirement of a performance

bond and payment bond for work under a contract that is to be

performed in a foreign country if the officer finds that it is

impracticable for the contractor to furnish the bonds.

(e) Authority to Require Additional Bonds. - This section does

not limit the authority of a contracting officer to require a

performance bond or other security in addition to those, or in

cases other than the cases, specified in subsection (b).

Sec. 3142. Rate of wages for laborers and mechanics

-STATUTE-

(a) Application. - The advertised specifications for every

contract in excess of $2,000, to which the Federal Government or

the District of Columbia is a party, for construction, alteration,

or repair, including painting and decorating, of public buildings

and public works of the Government or the District of Columbia that

are located in a State or the District of Columbia and which

requires or involves the employment of mechanics or laborers shall

contain a provision stating the minimum wages to be paid various

classes of laborers and mechanics.

(b) Based on Prevailing Wage. - The minimum wages shall be based

on the wages the Secretary of Labor determines to be prevailing for

the corresponding classes of laborers and mechanics employed on

projects of a character similar to the contract work in the civil

subdivision of the State in which the work is to be performed, or

in the District of Columbia if the work is to be performed there.

(c) Stipulations Required in Contract. - Every contract based

upon the specifications referred to in subsection (a) must contain

stipulations that -

(1) the contractor or subcontractor shall pay all mechanics and

laborers employed directly on the site of the work,

unconditionally and at least once a week, and without subsequent

deduction or rebate on any account, the full amounts accrued at

time of payment, computed at wage rates not less than those

stated in the advertised specifications, regardless of any

contractual relationship which may be alleged to exist between

the contractor or subcontractor and the laborers and mechanics;

(2) the contractor will post the scale of wages to be paid in a

prominent and easily accessible place at the site of the work;

and

(3) there may be withheld from the contractor so much of

accrued payments as the contracting officer considers necessary

to pay to laborers and mechanics employed by the contractor or

any subcontractor on the work the difference between the rates of

wages required by the contract to be paid laborers and mechanics

on the work and the rates of wages received by the laborers and

mechanics and not refunded to the contractor or subcontractors or

their agents.

(d) Discharge of Obligation. - The obligation of a contractor or

subcontractor to make payment in accordance with the prevailing

wage determinations of the Secretary of Labor, under this

subchapter and other laws incorporating this subchapter by

reference, may be discharged by making payments in cash, by making

contributions described in section 3141(2)(B)(i) of this title, by

assuming an enforceable commitment to bear the costs of a plan or

program referred to in section 3141(2)(B)(ii) of this title, or by

any combination of payment, contribution, and assumption, where the

aggregate of the payments, contributions, and costs is not less

than the basic hourly rate of pay plus the amount referred to in

section 3141(2)(B).

(e) Overtime Pay. - In determining the overtime pay to which a

laborer or mechanic is entitled under any federal law, the regular

or basic hourly rate of pay (or other alternative rate on which

premium rate of overtime compensation is computed) of the laborer

or mechanic is deemed to be the rate computed under section

3141(2)(A) of this title, except that where the amount of payments,

contributions, or costs incurred with respect to the laborer or

mechanic exceeds the applicable prevailing wage, the regular or

basic hourly rate of pay (or other alternative rate) is the amount

of payments, contributions, or costs actually incurred with respect

to the laborer or mechanic minus the greater of the amount of

contributions or costs of the types described in section 3141(2)(B)

of this title actually incurred with respect to the laborer or

mechanic or the amount determined under section 3141(2)(B) but not

actually paid.

Sec. 3162. Waiver for individuals who perform volunteer services

-STATUTE-

(a) Criteria for Receiving Waiver. - The requirement that certain

laborers and mechanics be paid in accordance with the wage-setting

provisions of subchapter IV of this chapter as set forth in the

Indian Self-Determination and Education Assistance Act (25 U.S.C.

450 et seq.), the Indian Health Care Improvement Act (25 U.S.C.

1601 et seq.), and the Housing and Community Development Act of

1974 (42 U.S.C. 5301 et seq.) does not apply to an individual -

(1) who volunteers to perform a service directly to a state or

local government, a public agency, or a public or private

nonprofit recipient of federal assistance -

(A) for civic, charitable, or humanitarian reasons;

(B) only for the personal purpose or pleasure of the

individual;

(C) without promise, expectation, or receipt of compensation

for services rendered, except as provided in subsection (b);

and

(D) freely and without pressure or coercion, direct or

implied, from any employer;

(2) whose contribution of service is not for the direct or

indirect benefit of any contractor otherwise performing or

seeking to perform work on the same project for which the

individual is volunteering;

(3) who is not employed by and does not provide services to a

contractor or subcontractor at any time on the federally assisted

or insured project for which the individual is volunteering; and

(4) who otherwise is not employed by the same public agency or

recipient of federal assistance to perform the same type of

services as those for which the individual proposes to volunteer.

(b) Payments. -

(1) In accordance with regulations. - Volunteers described in

subsection (a) who are performing services directly to a state or

local government or public agency may receive payments of

expenses, reasonable benefits, or a nominal fee only in

accordance with regulations the Secretary of Labor prescribes.

Volunteers who are performing services directly to a public or

private nonprofit entity may not receive those payments.

(2) Criteria and content of regulations. - In prescribing the

regulations, the Secretary shall consider criteria such as the

total amount of payments made (relating to expenses, benefits, or

fees) in the context of the economic realities. The regulations

shall include provisions that provide that -

(A) a payment for an expense may be received by a volunteer

for items such as uniform allowances, protective gear and

clothing, reimbursement for approximate out-of-pocket expenses,

or the cost or expense of meals and transportation;

(B) a reasonable benefit may include the inclusion of a

volunteer in a group insurance plan (such as a liability,

health, life, disability, or worker's compensation plan) or

pension plan, or the awarding of a length of service award; and

(C) a nominal fee may not be used as a substitute for

compensation and may not be connected to productivity.

(3) Nominal fee. - The Secretary shall decide what constitutes

a nominal fee for purposes of paragraph (2)(C). The decision

shall be based on the context of the economic realities of the

situation involved.

(c) Economic Reality. - In determining whether an expense,

benefit, or fee described in subsection (b) may be paid to

volunteers in the context of the economic realities of the

particular situation, the Secretary may not permit any expense,

benefit, or fee that has the effect of undermining labor standards

by creating downward pressure on prevailing wages in the local

construction industry.
