Why Contract Compliance: Many cities, counties, and other public agencies have adopted local hiring or first source hiring policies to leverage their public works and community development resources to increase employment opportunities for their residents. This assures that the projects reach a percentage goal requiring that a certain number of hours on the project are performed by local residents.
This is an attempt to assure that the local community benefits from development in their area and gains access to the opportunity provided by entry into the construction and other trades.
Assuring that the contractors and developers comply with this policy and letting the local community know of these opportunities is commonly referred to as “contract compliance”.
Through a series of strategic partnerships with the unions and local agencies and continued outreach to the contractors and the community, RPI has the ability to implement these programs to the benefit of the community, contractors and trade unions.
