Program Description

When a service contract expires and a follow-on contract is awarded for the same service at the same location, the successor contractor or its subcontractors often hires the majority of the predecessor’s employees. On some occasions, however, a successor contractor or its subcontractors hires a new work force, thus displacing the predecessor’s employees.

In this seminar, attendees will learn about:

  • The basics of the Service Contract Act and tips and tricks for contracting professionals;
  • The background and impact of this regulation on:
    • The successor contractor
    • The incumbent contractor
    • Contract transitions
    • Competition strategies
  • The contract clause to be included in solicitations and contracts;
  • The exclusions to the policy; and
  • Who has the authority to exempt contracts.
