The information being collected is
required by the Department of Labor (DOL) and the Federal
Acquisition Regulation (FAR) clause 52.222-8 Payrolls and Basic
Records which requires all contractors awarded construction
contracts in excess of $2,000 for work performed in the United
States to provide weekly payroll data to the appropriate
contracting officer. The Department of Labor (DOL) provided a
WH-347 form for contractors to use in their weekly payroll report.
The information being collected includes: 1. contractor and
subcontractor name, address and identifying number 2. the
contract/task order number 3. Project and Location 4. payroll
number 5. work week ending date 6. employee name 7. number of
withholding exemptions 8. work classifications 9. hours worked 10.
rate of pay (overtime and straight time) 11. gross amount earned
(overtime and straight time) 12. fringe benefits, and 13. Statement
of Compliance. GSA is proposing to deviate from the FAR clause to
require these construction contractors to use the GSA Electronic
Payroll Template and its portal to submit the required weekly
payroll data. GSA will not impose any additional record keeping
information for payrolls. All recordkeeping must be in compliance
with appropriate laws for record retention and inspection.
