CCMI Celebrates Our 20th Anniversary in Business

Contractor Compliance and Monitoring, Inc. (CCMI) was founded in November 2002 as the result of the California legislature passing legislation that pushed labor compliance enforcement down to local school district which received a certain type of bond funding. The following February, we wrote our first Labor Compliance program and started work on multiple projects for the Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District. In December of 2022 we just finished another project for that District, as Jan Shipley, construction supervisor retired. This is just one example of the great relationships we have built over the years. And, CCMI has its first employee, Jessica Finau, still with us, as well as many employees with 10+ and 15+ years as part of the CCMI team. Some of those employees include Katherine Martins, Yvonne Nickles, Heather Faulkner, Steve Noguera and Sandra Ruiz. Let’s just say we are pretty proud of our team.

FROM THE INBOX....You asked, we answered!
QUESTION: I am confused over Maryland’s threshold for Prevailing Wage Requirements. It seems like some places have it at $250,000 and in others it is a higher threshold. What am I missing?

In 2021, the Maryland Legislature lowered the prevailing wage threshold to $250,000 on projects where the State funding is 50% or more of the project (previously the threshold was $500,000). Counties where local funding is 50% of more of the project can set their own prevailing wage threshold. In the past, some counties have chosen not to apply prevailing wages, other set the threshold at $500,000. Currently Montgomery County lowered the threshold for county projects to $250,000. Baltimore County has a threshold of $300,00. Counties are free to set their own threshold for locally funded projects.

And just to complicate things, any federal money for construction triggers federal Davis Bacon requirements with just $2,000.
