Developers, general contractors and subcontractors working in the District of Columbia should exercise caution before entering into certain construction-related service delivery agreements.

TSG has partnered with DC`s Employment Services Department to create a unique opportunity to help businesses meet their first-source obligations. More than 85% of TSG workers are DC residents, all registered on DOES. By entering into a first source agreement with TSG and IS, your company can account for each of our DC resident workers on your first source report. Using Tsg for your use of work solution is a low risk for you (employees are on our payroll and insurance) and at the same time the best and most reliable way to fulfill your first source obligation. Strict notification requirements have been imposed to monitor recipients` efforts to comply with the first modified source law. From the beginning of a project or contract to the completion of construction and the issuance of a certificate of occupancy, recipients must submit monthly compliance reports to IS.
These include information on the number of employees recruited to work on a project, the number of jobs created, the number of employees transferred by other positions, the number of jobs listed with IS, the direct and indirect costs of project or contract work, the number of district residents hired for the reference period, and the social security number, the name of the position, the date of recruitment and the source of recommendation for all new recruitments.
