In a December 4, 2009, Federal Register notice, the Department of Labor (DOL) notified the public that centralized processing of prevailing wage determinations (PWDs) for all permanent (PERM) and temporary (LCA) programs will begin as planned, on January 1, 2010. Beginning on January 1, 2010, all requests for PWDs must be filed with the National Prevailing Wage Center (NPWC), using the national Application for Prevailing Wage Determination, ETA Form 9141. As of that date, PWD requests should no longer be filed at local State Workforce Agencies (SWAs).
Note: Effective March 12, 2010, the 4-digit extension in the ZIP code used in the addresses in this notice was changed from 20005-3142 to 20005-3105.
