Prevailing Wage Survey 2023



As a contractor in the State of Wyoming, you receive a yearly Prevailing Wage Survey. The survey was available online for the first time last year. Continuing with the efforts to streamline the survey process, the survey is available this year on this site. COMPLETING THE PREVAILING WAGE SURVEY IS A REQUIREMENT TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR STATE BID-PREFERENCE LAWS. There are two versions of the survey: building construction & heavy/highway. Both survey versions require employment information for construction in Wyoming over the September 2022 - August 2023 reporting period. The survey is available in both an Excel and PDF format.

  • Download the appropriate Excel version above, fill it out, and email it to cbea@uwyo.edu


  • Download appropriate the PDF version above, print it out, write your answers, and either scan and email it to cbea@uwyo.edu or mail it to:

Which survey do I need to take?

BUILDING CONSTRUCTION if your firm's work involves non-residential building, erection, renovation and/or associated construction activities. Such work includes private and public projects in the State of Wyoming during the specified period.

HEAVY/HIGHWAY if your firm's work involves civil constructions and includes: road, dam, canal and bridge construction, other heavy earth-moving projects, and energy sector projects such as pipelines in the State of Wyoming during the specified period.

Firms that have done both types of construction work should fill out the survey for the type of work they did most often from Sept 2022 - Aug 2023 (1 total). 

Contractors who manage multiple construction entities that worked in Wyoming should complete a survey for each separate firm. Firms that operate under several names only need to complete one survey and list all the names they operate as in STEP 1 of the survey.

We sincerely thank you in advance for your cooperation. If you have question or concerns, please email cbea@uwyo.edu or call (307) 766-4115
