The Indiana, Illinois, Iowa Foundation for Fair Contracting (III FFC) is a nonprofit construction industry foundation, established to increase market share for responsible contractors, work opportunities for skilled workers, and value for taxpayers by executing a comprehensive program of procurement oversite, jobsite monitoring, market analysis, legal advocacy, and public policy education. The III FFC is guided by a board comprised of both labor and management trustees.
As soon as public projects are advertised for bid, we have staff perform procurement monitoring.
We analyze the public construction market in Indiana, Illinois, and Iowa to promote criteria and policies that result in high road contracting.
Trained Construction Analysts investigate public construction projects to determine whether violations ranging from misclassification of workers to wage violations are occurring. We monitor projects to ensure compliance with federal, state, and local laws.
We draft legislation and amendments that promote bidding opportunities for responsible contractors.
We provide education to government officials to help them understand the value of "high-road" construction laws, ordinances, and policies.
