Loudoun GovCon: SCA - Balancing Compliance with Business Results

Register Here

The Service Contract Act (SCA) creates a contract environment with high risk of liability from audits combined with low margins. SCA contracts are considered to be one of the fastest growing contract types. We will cover how to ensure compliance with all applicable laws, discuss impact on benefits/PTO, increase margins and decrease risk on these contracts.

We will cover four main situations:

  1. Do you have an SCA contract and not know it – how to back track
  2. Starting a new SCA contract
  3. Planning for the re-compete
  4. How to convert from cash in lieu of benefits to tax exempt benefits
