  • Procurement contracts for construction covered by the Davis-Bacon Act (DBA);
  • Service contracts covered by the Service Contract Act (SCA);
  • Concessions contracts, including any concessions contract excluded from the SCA by DOL regulations; and
  • Contracts in connection with federal property or lands and related to offering services for federal employees, their dependents, or the general public.
