Host: NCMA

The regulations implementing the Service Contract Labor Standards (formerly known as the “Service Contract Act”) are complex and often misunderstood—especially since the requirement guidelines are complicated and difficult to navigate. Potential penalties for violations are severe, including default termination and debarment. In addition, a contractor’s failure to correctly understand the statute when preparing bid pricing may result in a reduction to anticipated profits on the resulting government contract. This session will explore the most common mistakes that contractors and contracting officers make when implementing the statute and help participants develop strategies for success.

Key Takeaways:

  • Overview of the Service Contract Labor Standards statute,
  • The most common compliance risks associated with the statute,
  • How to assess changes in the contract that may affect compliance, and
  • Penalties for noncompliance.
