CASPER - The Wyoming Department of Workforce Services (DWS) will host a Preference Act Seminar in Casper on Wednesday, February 25.
WHAT: The Wyoming Preference Act aims to retain public monies in the state by giving a leg up to Wyoming contractors bidding on public works projects. The law also gives Wyoming residents preference over out-of-state workers seeking employment on public works projects. The seminar will not address bidding processes, but instead, will provide information and procedural steps regarding individual contractor responsibilities for employing Wyoming residents after contracts with Wyoming governmental entities have been awarded.
WHEN: 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
WHERE: Casper Workforce Center (851 Werner Court).
WHO: Open to the public. Attendance is recommended for county and local officials, business owners, hospital administrators and any contractor who is involved in, or intends to participate in public works projects in the State of Wyoming.
There is no cost to participate.
