RSI Submits Comments to USDOT Regarding Local Hiring

Earlier this year, the USDOT issued this release regarding allowing for local hiring preferences in competitive contracting: http://content.govdelivery.com/accounts/USDOT/bulletins/f52882. As summarized in the Federal Register: “The USDOT proposes to amend its regulations in 2 CFR Part 1201 implementing the Government-wide Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards to permit recipients and subrecipients to impose geographic-based hiring preferences whenever not otherwise prohibited by Federal statute.” RSI opposes this proposed rule, and has submitted comments to the USDOT.
