SUPPLEMENTAL GUIDE FOR FEDERAL CONTRACTORS

6.1 SUBCONTRACTORS

The E-Verify federal contractor rule requires certain federal prime contractors to require their subcontractors to use E-Verify when:

  1. The prime contract includes the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) E-Verify clause;
  2. The subcontract is for commercial or noncommercial services or construction;
  3. The subcontract has a value of more than $3,500; and
  4. The subcontract includes work performed in the United States

Subcontractors who do not provide any services and only provide supplies under their subcontract are not subject to the E-Verify federal contractor rule.
