When contractors, subcontractors, sub-subs/etc., suppliers, etc., perform work on projects that involve federal funding, they're required to submit in-depth payroll information following Davis-Bacon and the USDOL Wage & Hour Division specific reporting requirements.
The WH-347 Payroll Report form and the WH-348 Statement of Compliance forms are designed for collecting and reporting that information.
The WH-347 and WH-348 forms are also used by many states for state-certified payroll.
Notice: Effective October 23, 2023
New and Clarified Recordkeeping and Reporting Requirements From The USDOL Wage & Hour Division (aka Department)
New Recordkeeping Requirements
The Department is adding two new recordkeeping requirements for contractors
to the collection under 1235–0008 (telephone # and email address; social security number and mailing address were already required). However, like the social security # and mailing address, they don’t want this information added to the “certified payrolls” submission (such as the WH–347 instrument); rather, this information must be maintained in-house and then provided to DOL and other agencies on request.
Clarification of Rules for Employees with Multiple Classifications
The Department is clarifying reporting requirements
that have to do with employees who work under more than one classification on a project.
Contractors and subcontractors are required to include on their certified payroll submissions (and keep records of) hours worked by an employee broken down by each separate classification of work performed by that employee. If the employee works under two or more classifications on a project, there must be a separate entry for each classification that shows the hours worked and monies earned under each classification.
If a contractor or subcontractor fails to report the breakdown accurately and/or maintain such records of actual daily and weekly hours worked and the correct classifications for those hours worked, then it must pay workers the rates of the classification of work performed with the highest prevailing wage and fringe benefits due.

Submission of federal certified payroll:
While completion of Form WH-347 is optional, it is mandatory for covered contractors and subcontractors performing work on Federally financed or assisted construction contracts to respond to the information collection contained in 29 C.F.R. §§ 3.3, 5.5(a). The Copeland Act (40 U.S.C. § 3145) requires contractors and subcontractors performing work on Federally financed or assisted construction contracts to "furnish weekly a statement with respect to the wages paid each employee during the preceding week." U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) Regulations at 29 C.F.R. § 5.5(a)(3)(ii) require contractors to submit weekly a copy of all payrolls to the Federal agency contracting for or financing the construction project, accompanied by a signed "Statement of Compliance" indicating that the payrolls are correct and complete and that each laborer or mechanic has been paid not less than the proper Davis-Bacon prevailing wage rate for the work performed. DOL and federal contracting agencies receiving this information review the information to determine that employees have received legally required wages and fringe benefits.
Please note that there is a simple PDF form available through the federal government website that you can download and use for free. The USDOL estimates it’ll take you 55 minutes to fill out their version but in our experience, it can easily take double or triple that time, and even more if you have a large field crew. This workbook will save you so much time over that simple PDF document.
- Federal certified payroll must be submitted weekly -
Please note that this is a weekly version. The USDOL Wage & Hour Division has stated that because federal certified payroll MUST be paid no less than once per week, and MUST be reported weekly per Davis-Bacon, a biweekly version is not valid and must not be used.
Do not submit your federal payroll on a biweekly form.
