Q1) What is the Prime Contractor's work percent requirements?
A1) Section 5-1.13, “Subcontracting,” of the Standard Specifications, requires that the prime contractor perform at least 30 percent of work using the contractor’s own organization unless a different percentage is specified in the special provisions. This requirement does not apply if the work is for a building-construction, non-federal-aid contract.
