The Construction Industry Force Account Council (CIFAC) is a non-profit coalition of concerned construction industry associations, contractors and labor unions that works to ensure State and local governments’ compliance with the Public Contract Code (PCC).
Our Regional Compliance Managers use their expertise to make sure that State and local governments comply with the PCC to promote job opportunities, fair bidding and transparency.
Our team consists of dedicated professionals, passionate about the industry and fighting for an equal playing field for all. We are both confident and excited about the job opportunities we are able to increase by holding public agencies accountable to state bidding and contracting laws. Through continuous hard work and dedication, our successes benefit the industry with uniform projects, transparency of government and increased job opportunities. We are proud of what we have been able to accomplish and continue to fight for the public works industry in an objective manner.
As the Executive Director, I would like to thank you for taking the time to visit our website.
