Office of Acquisition and Logistics (OAL)


VA Labor Advisor

The Labor Advisor provides assistance to VA acquisition professionals and the Department of Labor (DOL) to help ensure that VA contracts fully comply with the laws and executive orders reflected in Part 22 of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR).  Assistance can include clause selection, wage determinations, equitable pricing adjustments, project labor agreements, and facilitating a response to Department of Labor inquiries.  Depending on the policy of the acquisition office to which assigned, contract specialists may contact the VA Labor Advisor directly, or may be asked to first contact a local subject matter expert.  Either way, the goal will always be to anticipate difficulties before they occur.  Dialogue is encouraged early in the acquisition lifecycle, upon the first indication that a question of contract interpretation has arisen, or when notified of a formal DOL investigation.
