WHAT DOES NAFC DO?
Network and Clearinghouse
NAFC provides a national network and clearinghouse for those committed to maintaining a fair and level playing field in public contracting. NAFC also helps to establish fair contracting organizations around the nation.
Conferences and Seminars
NAFC’s annual National Conference and regional conferences bring together all those who are committed to fairness in public contracting. These meetings enable advocates of fair contracting in the public works market to network with one another, and to develop new strategies. NAFC also sponsors legal seminars to assist attorneys committed to fair public contracting.
NAFC supports all laws that level the playing field in public construction and is the national voice to educate the public in the importance of fair contracting to workers, contractors and taxpayers.
Enforcement and Compliance
NAFC’s affiliates work with responsible contractors, unions, and public officials to ensure that all bidders on public works projects follow all the rules, all the time.
A Need for Fair Laws
Construction is constantly changing, and the laws regulating public contracting need to stay current to protect the public. NAFC supports prevailing wage laws, responsible bidder requirements, worker misclassification reform and other measures that level the playing field for all contractors.
A Need for Enforcement
Laws are meaningless without enforcement. Public officials responsible for enforcing existing prevailing wage, labor, safety, and other laws cannot be everywhere all the time. NAFC affiliates monitor public jobs, and work with enforcement agencies to ensure compliance with all laws.
A Need for Cooperation
When labor unions, responsible contractors, and public agencies work on their own, fair contracting enforcement can fall through the cracks, and cheaters can win. NAFC works to improve cooperation between labor, management, and government agencies so that everyone can work together to ensure fairness in the public construction market.
