Accounting for SCA Contracts

This event qualifies for 1.0 CPEs

Service Contract Act (SCA) contracts introduce a new layer of complexity and reporting to government contracts. Contractors must consider adjustments to the indirect rate structure such as a separate fringe pool or onsite and offsite overhead pools. Wage determinations instruct contractors on the minimum wages and fringe benefits required including the option for wages in lieu of benefits - a cash payment that is often miscalculated and posted to the incorrect GL account. We'll show you the mechanics of a different indirect rate structure as well as the proper treatment of wages in lieu - two items that will affect your pricing, profitability, and competitiveness. All attendees will receive our free advanced indirect rate template.


Learning Objectives

  • Identify key SCA contract accounting requirements.
  • Explain the creation of different or additional indirect rate pools.
  • Describe the proper treatment of wages in lieu and its impact on indirect rates.
