Contractors and subcontractors shall provide a monthly work hour utilization report (Input Form 29 or I-29 Form) for the company’s total workforce (private and public work hours) within the State of Ohio. The report includes work hours by trade, race, sex, and job classification and must be electronically filed by the tenth day of each month. The submittal of the I-29 Form begins with the month the state or state assisted contract was awarded and continues until the completion of the contract.
I-29 Form data is reviewed and analyzed to determine if the contractor or subcontractor experienced hiring opportunities to recruit and hire minorities and women while performing on the state or state assisted contract. The contractor or subcontractor may be required to detail its faith efforts to promote hiring opportunities among minorities and women if the contractor does not meet the work hour goals for minorities and women.
The Input Form 29 must be submitted by all contractors and subcontractors while performing on state and state assisted construction contracts, regardless of the contract amount or number of employees. Contractors are required to inform all subcontractors of the reporting requirement.
