APC has received notice of the final draft of the Force Account specification re-write. The draft has been sent to FHWA for approval – possibly for use in projects let as soon as August of this year. PennDOT intends to implement these changes in several parts – the changes specific to the Force Account Automation will be implemented last. APC will be discussing implementation concerns – e.g., WC insurance submissions mid-policy etc. 

Please use the links below to review the draft language. Contact Bob Latham at rlatham@paconstructors.org with any additional implementation concerns that you feel need to be addressed/resolved.

In addition, APC will soon host a webinar for APC members to summarize/highlight the changes in the attached draft re-write. This will be presented so that contractors can be ready for a possible August implementation.
