requirements. DOE will ask each of these entities to report to DOE the 
information it is required to report to DOL on a semi-annual (every 6 
months) basis. DOE must ultimately report all this information in a 
report to DOL, including information on the number of Davis-Bacon Act 
compliance and enforcement investigations conducted and whether 
violations were found.
