Our Lawyers Know the Rules for State Projects
If you are the prime contractor, a subcontractor or a supplier for a state-funded project, you need to know your rights and your obligations under the law. Similar to the federal Miller Act, the state of Michigan has a Little Miller Act that requires performance bonds and payment bonds for most public projects.
- If you are pursuing a contract for road construction, highway construction, bridge construction, university construction, schools, courthouses, or construction for any state-funded project, make sure you understand all the requirements of a state construction contract.
- On certain state-funded projects, contractors are required to pay laborers the prevailing wage. Our construction attorneys advise clients regarding those and other mandated obligations.
