Webinar Details

Subject: Federal Contracting

Prerequisites: None

Recommended Field of Study: Specialized Knowledge and Applications

Program Knowledge Level: Basic

Advanced Preparation: None

If you’re seeking or fulfilling a service contract for the federal government worth more than $2,500, violating the Service Contract Act (SCA) can have disastrous financial consequences. Not complying with wage or fringe benefit requirements can trigger severe reimbursement penalties and even years of debarment.

Alternatively, savvy contractors can use the SCA’s Price Adjustment Clause to make their contract more profitable – either by recovering cost increases brought on by SCA requirements, or giving their employees a raise at the government’s expense.

Now, this 2-webinar series allows you to do both—so your team can stay compliant and profitable.

Even if you’ve missed the first webinar, you can still purchase the series and watch the first webinar OnDemand -- All for a reduced price!
