Can I get access to Davis Bacon Wage Determinations via the APIs at this site 'http://developer.dol.gov/wage-and-hour-division/wage-and-hour-publications-system'? I am looking for recent and historical Davis Bacon wage determinations for select counties and trades.

    department of labor directs all of their users here; the wiki tag reinforces it (and confuses others) while their developer page brings them here with practically no context whatsover.

    @Todd Read the above comment. You are on a different website now that has no relation with DOL. Can you edit your question so that is understandable to everyone here?

Department of Labor (DOL) points to WDOL (Wage Determinations OnLine) as the source of Davis-Bacon Determinations data.
How do I subscribe to General Wage Discriminations Issued Under the Davis-Bacon and Related Acts? says:

"...the Department of Labor adopted the Wage Determination On Line (WDOL) website at https://wdol.gov as the source for obtaining Davis-Bacon Act (DBA) general wage determinations."

Another pseudo quote from DOL states:

Bacon-Davis survey results for work done by DOL are published/can be found at wdol.gov

WDOL provides a single location for federal contracting officers to use in obtaining appropriate Service Contract Act (SCA) and Davis-Bacon Act (DBA) wage determinations (WDs) for each official contract action, and is available to the general public as well.


Guidance in selecting WDs from this website is provided in the wdol.gov User’s Guide (v6.0).
