PSC’s program is the only SCA training conducted in partnership with the U.S. Department of Labor, Wage & Hour Division.
This course has been approved for 12.5 CLE, HRCI, or CPE credits!

Why You Should Attend the Professional Services Council SCA Training The Service Contract Act is one of the most technically challenging aspects of competing for the award of, and successfully administering a federal service contract. SCA sets minimum pay and benefit rates for many service occupations.

The SCA affects many different decisions made by many different people in a company. Everyone, from executive leadership to proposal writers, to accountants, project managers, and human resource specialists, needs to be conversant with the requirements of the act. This course will give your staff the knowledge to be SCA-savvy in opportunity identification, capture strategy, bid/no-bid decisions, contract pricing, contract price adjustments, wage determinations, and fringe benefit calculations.

This training conference is also your chance to spend time with the regulators who oversee your company's SCA-covered activities, and to interact with seasoned industry experts in SCA administration. You will leave with a thorough knowledge of regulations, a deep understanding of how the regulations are enforced, and the ability to implement industry “best practices” in your company's compliance activities. In addition, you will be provided up-to-date information on the most critical issues relating to the SCA.

Attendees will be provided a very complete training manual that includes copies of the presentations and contact information for presenters and other relevant agency personnel. PSC will also facilitate the ability of course attendees to contact all of the presenters, post-conference, for follow-up questions and comments.

Hopecam 15th Annual 5K—Sunday, May 3, 2015
Benefitting Children with Cancer

Date: Sunday, May 3, 2015
Time: 8:15 AM
Location: 1890 Preston White Drive,
Reston, VA

NVTC “Most Innovative Use of Technology Finalist” Hopecam is holding its 15th Annual 5k on Sunday, May 3 to raise funds to help children with cancer.

15,780 children will be diagnosed with cancer this year. Nearly every one of these children will be isolated from their friends and unable to attend school as a result of their treatment. Today, thanks to technology, this isolation can be overcome by giving the child a tablet computer and persuading schools to establish a connection with the hospitalized and homebound child. Hopecam is the only charity in the United States providing these services. It's no wonder that in 2014, Hopecam was asked to help six times the number of children as the year before. 2015 will be no different and Hopecam is well on its way to helping 700 children, if not more, before year's end.

It costs about $1,000 to connect each child. About 12 percent of the children live in homes unable to afford Internet, which Hopecam provides at a cost of $500 per year. 70 percent of the children attend schools eligible for Title 1 (low income) financing.

The Hopecam 5K Run/Walk is a USATF certified race — fast and flat for those wanting to set a personal best record. This is also the perfect race for families featuring an easy course for runners and walkers of all ages and fitness levels. For the first time this year, there will be corporate team competition with awards for fastest team and team that raises the most money. E-mail info@hopecam.org for information.
