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.
