4. Please note the following important pricing information.
  • Labor: All prices for labor categories subject to prevailing wage are structured in a “PW +%” structure. This is defined as “prevailing wage plus percentage markup.” For jobs covered by prevailing wage, vendors offer pricing expressed as a markup over prevailing wage. L&I updates the prevailing-wage tables on Aug. 1 and Feb. 1, making the base automatically adjustable as PW rates rise. All prevailing wage labor categories are for journey-level workers.
  • Parts and Materials: Parts and Materials are priced in a cost + % markup structure. Vendors need to structure their quotes and invoices in this way to verify contract pricing. Contractors must share suppliers' invoices upon request by Purchasers. Percentage markup includes shipping, configuration, kitting, processing, warehousing, and other costs of acquisition or delivery of the parts, supplies, and materials.
  • Travel: Mileage for each region (in company vehicles or employee-owned vehicles) is factored into the labor pricing for each labor category.
  • Other Charges: Costs of permits and performance bonds, as the purchaser may require, will appear on quotes or invoices at cost with no markup. Equipment rented for a specific advertised job must appear on a quote for the purchaser as a separate line item at cost.Owned equipment and tools that are used on an IT Cabling- Outside Work project can be billed at a rate that does NOT exceed the most recent FEMA Schedule of Equipment Rates (2019 Schedule at time of posting). This is intended for equipment used in Outside Work (trenchers, asphalt paver, concrete mixer, etc.) Standard equipment and tools used for IT Cabling projects (inside and outside work) are NOT allowed as separate line items.
