This act clarifies that the University of Delaware, like other institutes of higher learning including Delaware State University and Delaware Technical and Community College, must comply with the terms of the Prevailing Wage Law for projects secured under the State Procurement Act. This Act ensures that laborers and trade unions working on public work projects at or for the University of Delaware enjoy the same protections of the Prevailing Wage Law as they would on any other project governed by the SPA. The bill is curtailed such that it will only apply to the Universitys designation as a state agency for the limited purpose of the application of the Prevailing Wage Law, and does not otherwise expand or limit the entitys duties and liabilities under any other governing statute.
