Prevailing Wage Class

In December 2020, the Massachusetts Certified Public Purchasing Official (MCPPO) program, together with the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office, taught a one-day interactive class, entitled Prevailing Wisdom – Confronting Potential Pitfalls and Applying Solutions on Prevailing Wage/Public Construction Projects, to over 120 students.

The class focused on the basics of prevailing wage law, public construction bid laws and the Massachusetts False Claims Act. Students learned how these laws apply to public procurement and related construction services, such as maintenance, alterations and repairs to buildings. Students also reviewed exercises highlighting potential problems that commonly arise in public construction projects, drawn from real investigations and complaints. Given the popularity of this class, we are offering it again on June 8, 2021, and you can register now. We hope to see you in class!
