The Wyoming Department of Workforce Services newest opportunity, the “Wyoming Resident Contractor Certification” program, provides qualified local contractors with the opportunity to receive a 5% bidding preference over non-resident contractors on many public works projects in the state of Wyoming.
The new feature is a certification mark that will feature each contractor’s certification number as assigned by DWS. Contractors can use the mark on construction site signage, the literature they produce, their websites, or in other ways as they see fit to display that they are proud Wyoming contractors.
Certified Wyoming resident contractors have to meet several requirements in order to qualify to receive the certification, including being in good standing with Wyoming Workers’ Compensation and Unemployment Insurance. There are currently around 1,200 certified resident contractors.
