MARCH 8—The Government Printing Office has made its wage determination documents available on the Web.

Users going to the GPO Access site, at, can view full-text versions of information of wage determinations required under the Davis-Bacon Act, which sets requirements on the minimum wages paid to laborers working under federal construction contracts of $2,000 or more.

GPO and the Labor Department's Wage and Hour Division teamed up on the effort to take the wage determination database online. It went live last week, and will be updated weekly, GPO officials said.

Users can search the database by state, type of construction, date or wage determination number. Each state section includes a table of wage determinations by county. Text documents are produced in Hypertext Markup Language.
