Service Contract Act Training
Presented by the Professional Services Council

Presented by the Professional Services Council

Date: March 29 – 30, 2016

Location: NRECA Conference Center,
4301 Wilson Blvd.,
Arlington, VA 22203

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. This course is the nation's only SCA training conducted with the Department of Labor Wage and Hour Division, and is designed to help companies navigate the SCA from several different angles.

SCA sets minimum pay and benefit rates for many service occupations. Over the past six years, the Department of Labor has ramped up its SCA investigative activities and hired significant new investigative staff. Additionally, a series of Executive Orders (EOs) and changes to federal law (including the Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces Executive Order and the Affordable Care Act) are making it harder to understand how to comply with the SCA, and are increasing the risks for contractors that fall out of compliance.

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 two-day course, led by leading industry experts, 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
  • Fringe benefit calculations.

    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.

    This course has been approved for 12.5 CLE or HRCI credits!

    For every seven registrants from the same company, the eighth registrant is FREE

    Member Price: $945
    Non-Member Price: $1095

    ***No refunds 7 business days prior to training start date. Transfers to another individual or to a later session are permitted. Prices include breakfasts and lunches.
