The Monthly Employment Utilization Report (MEUR), submitted by contractors, summarizes the number of hours worked onsite for a Public Works or other development contract. The report includes: construction trade, class, hours for women and people of color, and total hours for all employees. These reports are to be filled out monthly for the length of the project, and are used to track if the contractor is meeting the workforce goals for the project.


  • Boxes 1 through 3 are general information related to the specific contract being reported on. Box 1 is the same for each project, so the field is not editable.
  • Reporting Period (#2) should be the start and end date of the month being reported on.
  • Box 3 is the name and address of the company. The prime contractor and each subcontractor will fill out their own individual reports. Worksite Address/Location refers to the specific project site, and City Contract # is the code given by the City of Madison for each project.
  • To fill out the table, you will need to report the number of hours worked and total employees onsite by construction trade.
  • Box 4 relates to the construction trade. Only trades worked on the job site should be reflected.
  • For 6a to 6f, you will fill in, by classification, the total hours onsite for men and women, then enter hours for racial/ethnic men and women onsite.
  • Boxes 7 and 8 will auto calculate once all the hours are entered.
  • Box 9 should be used to report on the total number of males and females worked onsite during the reporting period. This should not be the total number of employees in the company, just those who worked on the project.
  • Box 10 is to be used to report all racial/ethnic employees worked onsite during the reporting period. Again, this should not be the total number of employees in the company, just those who worked on the project.
  • For example, if you have 5 employees who worked for a total of 100 hours on a project with 2 white female employees and one black male, you would enter the total number of hours worked for the three males and the two females in column 6a. Then, you would enter the hours worked by the black male employee in column 6b. In moving to column 9, you would enter “3” for male employees, and “2” for female employees. In box 10, you would enter “1” for minority male employees and “0” for minority female employees.
  • Box 11 is used only if the project requires Section 3 hires.
  • #12 is where the individual signs to certify the information included is correct. The next few boxes should be filled in with their contact information.

After the report is signed, it should be sent to the prime contractor, and the prime contractor should email them to the Department of Civil Rights at
