SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    Section 2834(a) of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) 
for Fiscal Year 2010 (Pub. L. 111-84, enacted October 28, 2009) amended 
Section 2824(c) of the Military Construction Authorization Act (Pub. L. 
110-417, Division B) by adding a new subsection (6). This provision 
prohibits contractors engaged in construction projects related to the 
realignment of U.S. military forces from Okinawa to Guam from hiring 
non-U.S. workers unless the Governor of Guam (Governor), in 
consultation with the U.S. Secretary of Labor (Secretary), certifies 
that (1) there is an insufficient number of U.S. workers that are able, 
willing, and qualified to perform the work; and (2) that the employment 
of non-U.S. workers will not have an adverse effect on either the wages 
or the working conditions of U.S. construction workers in Guam.
    In order to allow the Governor to make this certification, the NDAA 
requires contractors to recruit workers in the United States, including 
in Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, American Samoa, the U.S. Virgin 
Islands, and Puerto Rico, according to the terms of recruitment 
standards developed and approved by the Secretary. The recruitment 
standards have been reproduced in full below.
    Although the Department has developed the recruitment standards, it 
has assigned oversight of the contractor recruitment standards and the 
NDAA-required consultation with the Governor to the Guam Department of 
Labor (GDOL) through a Memorandum of Understanding between the U.S. 
Department of Labor and GDOL, effective November 22, 2011.

I. Guam Military Base Realignment Contractors Recruitment Standards

    Guam military base realignment contractors must take the following 
actions to recruit U.S. workers.
    1. At least 60 days before the start date of workers under a base 
realignment contract, contractors must:
    (a) Submit a job posting with GDOL at http://dol.guam.gov/index.php?option=com_jobline&Itemid=0&task=add, or by submitting a

provision and cost of the board, lodging, or other facilities, 
including fringe benefits or assistance to be provided.
    3. During the 28-day recruitment period, which begins on the 
earliest date of posting, contractors must interview all qualified and 
available Guam and U.S. construction workers who have applied for the 
employment opportunity.
    4. After the close of the recruitment period, and no later than 30 
days before the start date of workers under a contract, the contractor 
must provide a report including the following information via email to 
GDOL at ndaa.recruitment@dol.guam.gov documenting its efforts to 
recruit U.S. workers from the United States and all U.S. territories:
    (a) A description of all the recruitment approaches used to recruit 
realignment workers. The description must include identification of the 
Internet job banks where the postings occurred, the occupation or

employment, the date of each posting, and the job order or requisition 
number. If newspaper advertisements were used, the description must

and experience against the terms listed in the original job posting.

II. USDOL Recruitment Support Activities

    Separate from the contractor recruitment standards, ETA will 
facilitate a nationwide outreach and recruitment effort to maximize 
hiring of U.S. construction workers, including outreach to its 
workforce investment system. ETA will do the following:
     Develop and issue a Training and Employment Notice (TEN), 
and hold an Internet-based training session (``Webinar'') to inform 
contractors, state workforce agencies, state and local workforce 
investment boards, and One-Stop Career Centers of the anticipated 
construction employment opportunities on Guam and how these 
opportunities will be posted [interested individuals can automatically 
receive notice of the TEN by going to http://wdr.doleta.gov/directives 
and clicking on the last bullet, stating ``To be added to the ETA 
Advisory electronic distribution list--click here,'' and interested 
individuals can automatically receive notice of the Webinar by 
registering for ETA's Workforce3One by going to https://www.workforce3one.org/register.aspx, then going to the fourth category 
(Newsletters and Updates) and checking the box for ``Webinars/Live 
Events,'' and should also check both boxes under ``Reemployment Works'' 
in the preceding category (labeled ``Join Communities'')];
     Develop telephone scripts for a Toll-Free Help Line 
directing job seekers to the GDOL job bank;
     Ensure that Departmental offices--including the Office of 
Unemployment Insurance, the Office of Apprenticeship, the Office of Job 
Corps, the Veterans' Employment and Training Service, and the
