(a) Incentive Criteria. Contractors and Subcontractors may receive financial and non-financial incentives for exceeding the Local Hiring Requirements on a Covered Project. Project Work Hours credited under subsection 82.5(b) shall not be the basis for any financial or non-financial incentive payment or entitlement.
(b) Administration. Awarding Departments will work in consultation with OEWD to establish the operation and amounts of the incentives, if any.
(1) Any financial incentives provided on a Covered Project shall comply with applicable law and shall not exceed 1% of the estimated cost of the project. If financial incentives are made available for a Covered Project, Awarding Departments shall pay such incentives, if earned by a Contractor or Subcontractor, only after a Contractor or Subcontractor has completed work on the project and OEWD has approved the Contractor’s or Subcontractor’s request for incentive payment. Subcontractors requesting incentive payments shall submit requests to the Awarding Department and OEWD through the Prime Contractor, not directly to the Awarding Department or OEWD. Payment of Subcontractor incentives shall be paid to the Prime Contractor for the benefit of the appropriate Subcontractor(s). The Prime Contractor must pay Subcontractor(s) within 10 days of receipt of financial incentives from the City.
(2) OEWD shall, by regulation, develop non-financial incentives such as expedited permitting and reduced administrative burden.
