On February 6, 2009, President Barack Obama signed Executive Order 13502, which asks federal authorities to consider using LTOs for federal construction projects that cost $25 million or more.  The purpose of this act was to repeal Bush`s executive orders in 13202 and 13208, over the previous eight years, which had banned mandatory PLAs for federal and federal projects.  The Obama Order states that federal authorities may require a PLA if such an agreement meets the federal government`s objectives in terms of profitability and efficiency. Under the terms of the contract, contractors cannot compete for contracts subject to PLA, but they must accept the different conditions contained in each ALP to win a federal contract and build a project.  A significant change from the 2001 order is that the Obama order, by removing bush sponsors from federal funds, such as public, local and private owners, allows for the use of public construction projects of all sizes. The order does not encourage or instruct federal aid recipients to use a government-mandated PLA.  Employment contracts must provide for the time of completion of a project. This usually means a specific date and even a date agreed by both parties before signing the contract. Sometimes employment contracts consist of more than one project and therefore have to consist of several specific deadlines for each contract. Studies have shown that LAA project owners and local communities have advantages and penalize entrepreneurs and non-independent workers in unions. A 2009 study by Fred B.
Kotler, J.D., associate director of Cornell University School of Industrial and Labor Relations, found that there was no evidence that PMAs discriminate pending employers and workers, limit the number of bidders and increase construction costs.  In a 2009 report by Dale Belman of Michigan State University; Matthew M. Bodah of the University of Rhode Island and Peter Philips of the University of Utah said that instead of increasing costs, the agreements would bring benefits to the community. According to your report, the cost of the project is directly related to the complexity of a project, not to the existence of an agreement. They found that AEPs are not suitable for all projects, but some projects are good candidates for their use, such as very complex construction projects.  Studies have also been conducted on how GPs can benefit local communities by hiring aboriginal people. In a paper that focused on whether the AEPs met local hiring targets for projects developed by the District Community College of Los Angeles (LACCD), the District of Los Angeles Unified (LAUSD) and the City of Los Angeles, the author found that the 30% local rent target set by the PLA has been met.  Opponents of PLA argue that agreements affect competition for project offers, which can lead to increased costs.  Opponents of the PLA, such as former CBA President Henry Kelly, argue that THE PLAs discourage non-unionized contractors from competing, or even preventing, construction projects, particularly federal ones.  The tendering statutes disincentive public sector EPS to discrimination against non-union and union contractors, since discrimination between bidders would generally constitute a violation of these statutes.   Non-union contractors have been awarded contracts for public sector projects. B, including the Boston Harbor project. In the U.S. Supreme Court`s decision on the use of a PLA for the Boston Harbor project, it was established that project owners have the right to choose a contractor willing to enter into a pre-lease agreement and that contractors have the choice of whether or not to enter into such an agreement.  However, in a subsequent case, the Supreme Court found the following restriction of the Boston Harbor holding company: “When we found that the public authority had acted as an operator, we noted that the impugned complaint was “specifically designed for a particular job
