How do you establish the basis for the 10% goal for contracts? Is it based on the total value of the construction contract or is it based on the value of the covered contracts for building trades work, such as carpentry, masonry, plumbing, electrical, and demolition?

The regulations at 24 CFR 135.30(c)(1) establish a goal that at least 10% of the dollar amount of Section 3 covered contracts for building trades work be awarded to Section 3 businesses. The Section 3 requirements would apply to aggregate amount of all projects involving housing construction, rehabilitation, or other public construction. Therefore the numerical goal would be 10% of the total dollar amount of all covered contracts.
