Construction Industry Coalition Advocates for Exempting Miller Act from Indexing

The Construction Industry Procurement Coalition (CIPC), which includes several of the largest trade associations in the construction industry, submitted a statement to the leadership of the House and Senate Armed Services Committees in support of exempting the Miller Act threshold from increasing as they advance this year’s National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). If the exemption is not adopted, the federal Miller Act threshold is expected to be increased in 2020 by $50,000 to $200,000. The letter emphasizes the important role the Miller Act provides by requiring protection for subcontractors and suppliers on larger federal projects. Many subcontractors and suppliers on federal construction projects are small contractors for whom not getting paid could be catastrophic.
