SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On September 16, 2015, the Department 
published a notice to announce the applicable minimum wage rate to be 
paid to workers performing work on or in connection with Federal 
contracts covered by Executive Order 13658, beginning January 1, 2016. 
See 80 FR 55646. This Notice of Correction publishes appendices omitted 
in the prior publication. As indicated in the notice published 
September 16, 2015, Appendix A to the notice provides a comprehensive 
chart of the Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical 
Workers (CPI-W) (United States city average, all items, not seasonally 
adjusted) data published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) that 
the Department utilized to calculate the new Executive Order minimum 
wage rate based on the methodology explained therein. Appendix B to the 
notice sets forth an updated version of the Executive Order 13658 
poster that the Department published with its Final Rule implementing 
the Executive Order, reflecting the updated wage rates that will be in 
effect beginning January 1, 2016. See 79 FR 60732-33. Pursuant to 29 
CFR 10.29, contractors are required to notify all workers performing on 
or in connection with a covered contract of the applicable minimum wage 
rate under the Executive Order. Contractors with employees covered by 
the Fair Labor Standards Act who are performing on or in connection 
with a covered contract may satisfy the notice requirement by 
displaying the poster set forth in Appendix B in a prominent or 
accessible place at the worksite.

    Dated: September 21, 2015.

Wage and Hour Administrator.
