    Service Contract Act Training

    Date: February 28 – March 1, 2018
    Time: 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
    Location: NRECA Conference Center
    4301 Wilson Blvd
    Arlington, Va. 22203

    This course has been approved for 13 CLE or HRCI credits

    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 two-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 “2018 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.

    Course highlights:

  • Instructors include experts with long careers in the service contracting industry, in Dept. of Labor enforcement programs, as procurement agency advisors on contract labor issues, and legal experts specializing in SCA and related labor issues.
  • Attendees participate in interactive exercises, worksheets, and question/answer sessions.
  • The presentation will include one-hour panel discussions. Typically, PSC invites representatives from the Dept. of Labor’s national office to discuss their procedures in administering and enforcing SCA (preparation of wage determinations, processing conformances, enforcement statistics, and any questions the attendees offer). PSC also invites procurement agency labor advisors from the Dept. of Defense, NASA, and other civilian agencies to discuss the agencies’ administration of labor standards on their contracts, including the processing of solicitation and options/extensions where decisions are necessary under SCA and related requirements.
