agency may, if appropriate, require that every contractor and 
subcontractor engaged in construction on the project agree, for that 
project, to negotiate or become a party to a project labor agreement 
with one or more labor organizations if the agency decides that the use 
of project labor agreements will--
    (1) Advance the Federal Government's interest in achieving economy 
and efficiency in Federal procurement, producing labor-management 
stability, and ensuring compliance with laws and regulations governing 
safety and health, equal employment opportunity, labor and employment 
standards, and other matters; and,
    (2) Be consistent with law.
