Prevailing Wage

The Illinois Prevailing Wage Act, 820 ILCS 130/1 et. seq., requires that prevailing wage be paid for certain public works projects. It also contains administrative and record keeping requirements that the Library and its contractors must follow. When prevailing wage is required on a project, a copy of all Certified Transcripts of Payroll must be submitted to the Library before an invoice will be paid.
