 7        Sec. 7. The finding  of  the  public  body  awarding  the
 8    contract  or  authorizing the work or the Department of Labor
 9    ascertaining and declaring the  general  prevailing  rate  of
10    hourly  wages shall be final for all purposes of the contract
11    for public work then being considered, unless reviewed  under
12    the  provisions  of  this  Act. Nothing in this Act, however,
