AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Contractors bidding on public sector jobs understand that in order to win bids they need to maximize efficiencies, reduce costs and maintain compliance. Fringe Benefit Group's prevailing wage benefit plan, The Contractors Plan, helps government contractors, like those working on Davis-Bacon Act and Service Contract Act jobs, stay compliant with government regulations and bid more competitively while providing quality benefits to their employees. Utilizing its 30 years of experience in this market, Fringe Benefit Group is highly skilled at understanding, recommending and implementing retirement and Affordable Care Act (ACA)-compliant health plan options for open shop government contractors.
