Service Contract Act Training

Date: June 19-20, 2018
Location: NRECA Conference Center
4301 Wilson Blvd.
Arlington, Va. 22203

The Service Contract Act (SCA) and the regulations implementing SCA are some of the most challenging requirements for contractors and for contracting agencies involved in federal contracts for services. If you are competing for the award of a service contract, or performing a service contract and administering your responsibilities under SCA, this 2-day course is critical to understanding SCA and ensuring fair competition and full compliance throughout performance of the awarded contract.

PSC’s updated and enhanced “Service Contract Act Training” teaches the fundamental requirements of SCA as it affects preparation of proposals, wage determinations, classifications and conformances for missing classifications, staffing, pricing, out-year price adjustments, response to payroll audits and worker inquiries, administering SCA provisions as they apply to collective bargaining agreements, and numerous other issues on service contracting.

The course is designed to provide important information for all personnel in your company whose work may involve covered service workers. All of these persons must have relevant knowledge, work together, and communicate with each other in order to be successfully competitive, maintain compliance following award, and avoid unexpected payroll and benefit liabilities.

This course has been approved for 13 CLE or HRCI credits.
