Prevailing Rate of Wage

As per RCW 39.12.015, 39.12.020 and WAC 296-127-011 and as was distributed to all state and local agencies, other interested parties, and posted on the internet on August 2, 2004, the industrial statistician has determined the statewide prevailing rates of wage. These prevailing rates of wage are effective for public works projects bid on or after September 1, 2004.

Every contractor and subcontractor on every public works project must file a statement of intent to pay prevailing wages and an affidavit of wages paid. Both forms must be filed on every project. The filing of the affidavit of wages paid does not set aside the requirement to also file the statement of intent to pay prevailing wages. The department may fine contractors $500 for failure to file these forms.
