Project Management & Compliance Monitoring

Project / Compliance Monitoring

As a general contractor of major apartment and municipality buildings in California we initially attended PWCA’s prevailing wage seminar in Livermore, California. Following that training, I was convinced that PWCA was the company we needed to monitor our subcontractors so as to keep them all in DIR compliance. It has been a year now since this engagement began. Thus far, our experience with PWCA’s Compliance Department and its Legal Department has been timely, instructive, and most professional. With over 42 subcontractors on one project we have leaned heavily on PWCA to assist with monitoring and correcting subcontractors who run afoul of certified payroll compliance procedures. I would therefore recommend PWCA for your project monitoring and management needs.

This is exactly what I wanted to have happen!  I am very happy that all of the forms have now been filled out fully and correctly!  They look amazing and very complete and just what I was hoping to find when opening the file.  . . .  Thank you very much for taking care of all of this for me . . .

We offer three types of project monitoring

and management services:

Project Monitoring:

The function of PWCA’s monitoring unit is to ensure that our clients’ subcontractors are performing work in the execution of their contracts, on projects for which the contractors are to comply with the DIR’s prevailing wage requirements found in the Division 2, Part 7, Chapter 1 of the Labor Code.

PWCA provides compliance monitoring for awarding bodies, public works contractors, or any other entity that is subject to the California prevailing wage laws.

Project Management

Project management is distinctly different than project monitoring. At PWCA, we offer two types of project management services.

1. Al la carte project management services: With this service, the general contractor or the subcontractor on a prevailing wage project can pick and choose distinct areas of the prevailing wage requirements and assign them to PWCA’s compliance unit for weekly compliance reporting. For example, a contractor may choose PWCA to complete the weekly A-1-131 payroll records and upload the weekly eCPR payroll records to the DIR and nothing else.

2. Turn-Key project management services: The PWCA compliance unit is assigned the entire compliance tasks as required by Labor Code Section 1720. Turn-Key project management also involves PWCA’s involvement for the entire term of the project’s contract.
