Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds are allocated to over a thousand local and state governments to assist in community development activities, such as affordable housing, anti-poverty programs, and infrastructure development. In 2015, Pacifica was selected by the City of Cudahy to provide Contract and Labor Compliance Services for the CDBG Lugo Park Restroom Rehabilitation and CDBG Lugo Park Soccer Field projects.
The Lugo Park Restroom Rehabilitation included a fresh graffiti resistant paint, roofing repairs, ADA upgrades, replacements of restroom facilities, and an upgrade of plumbing and electrical installations. Furthermore, the project reconfigured the existing restroom layout to provide direct access to the park and to better accommodate additional stalls and bathroom fixtures. The Lugo Park Soccer Field project consisted of the purchase and installation of approximately 87,000 square feet of FIFA Certified artificial grass.
Pacifica assisted the City of Cudahy in determining specific labor standards parameters applicable for the projects and helped package the RFP by providing applicable contract and labor compliance language and corresponding forms as it pertained to CDBG, Section 3, EEO, and labor compliance requirements. From bid award to project closeout, Pacifica monitored certified payroll records for prevailing wage compliance, conducted worker field interviews, and prepared discrepancy notifications to identify corrective actions, as well as executed reporting requirements.
