Certified Payroll is required for all work performed for BHA. Some contracts require that the certified payroll reports are submitted to BHA on a weekly basis, and others require that they are generated and kept by the Contractor. The requirement varies based on the funding of the work and is indicated in the contract document signed by BHA and the Contractor.
Contractors are required to retain and/or submit certified payroll to illustrate and document that they have complied with the prevailing wage requirements of the project. Certified payroll reports may be reviewed by BHA, HUD, or the Department of Labor & Industries at any time during the project or as part of the closeout. If it is determined through review of the reports that a mistake was made in the payment to an employee, BHA will work with the contractor to ensure that the mistake is corrected and the employee compensated appropriately.
