The Department of Labor recommended that a subcontractor on six Navy contracts be placed on the ineligible bidders list for violations of the Davis-Bacon Act because it found that: (1) the subcontractor paid employees less than the applicable prevailing wage rates; (2) the subcontractor kept inaccurate and incomplete payroll records; and (3) there were no matters which militated against debarment. GAO found that the subcontractor disregarded its obligations to its employees and committed other substantial violations. Accordingly, GAO ordered that: (1) the subcontractor and its officers be included on the list of ineligible bidders; and (2) the funds on deposit with GAO be disbursed to the uncompensated employee.
