Title: Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR); FAR Case 2022-003, Use of Project Labor Agreement for Federal Construction Projects 

This rule will require the use of project labor agreements for large-scale construction projects with a total estimated value of $35 million or more.

This rule is being issued in accordance with the Executive Order 14063 titled "Use of Project Labor Agreements for Federal Construction Projects” issued February 4, 2022. DoD, GSA, and NASA received public comments in response to the proposed rule published in August of 2022, which are being considered in the development of the final rule.
