Notice:

Application and enforcement of the regulations in the 2016 Public Works Minimum Wage Act Policy Manual will go into effect on January 1, 2019. These regulations revise certain worker classifications and alter reporting requirements. They will affect the issuance of wage rate decisions from January 1, 2019 onward, and audits conducted on projects with wage rate decisions issued January 1, 2019 onward. Wage rate decisions that are issued through December 31, 2018 will continue to utilize the 2018 rates in accordance with the regulations that were in effect in the prior version of the Public Works Minimum Wage Act Policy Manual (available below). Please note, any audits conducted on public works projects will always utilize the wage rate determinations, wage rates and regulations that were in effect during the period of the audit in question.

Public Works and Apprenticeship Application

The Public Works and Apprenticeship Application (PWAA) is the new online database exchange between the New Mexico Department Workforce Solutions and apprenticeship programs, contractors, and contracting agencies. The PWAA is an interactive tool providing many self-service activities including: registering apprentices; issuing apprentice certifications; entering wage decision requests; completing public works paperwork; making apprenticeship contributions; and contractor registration/renewals.

Contractors and contracting agencies will need to create an administrator account and then will be able to create various roles and accounts for any individuals who are authorized to conduct business on behalf of your company.

If you have questions about account creation, system features, or changes in processes, contractors and contracting agencies are encouraged to contact the New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions Public Works Office at (505) 841-4400 or via email at public.works@state.nm.us.
