GSA National has expanded its original and highly successful one-day course, “SCA – A Practitioner’s Guide.” In addition to the basic application of and compliance with SCA, our new program will discuss more complex issues such as employee classifications, collective bargaining agreements under SCA Section 4(c), and contract price adjustments resulting from SCA impact on fixed-price contracts at options or anniversaries.

We have also added a separate course that covers the Davis Bacon and Related Acts (DBRA), including the application of the law, compliance issues, and reporting requirements. Both courses include information on other statutes and regulations related to federal contracting such as the Fair Labor Standards Act, Federal Acquisition Regulation on contract labor requirements, National Labor Relations Act, and other pertinent requirements.
