Note: Because government guidelines and requirements are constantly revised, Please check all references and numbers cited for any applicable revisions. 

Reminder: To all who are impacted by SCA (Service Contract Act). 

For those who don't know or may have forgot in the hectic pace of day to day pressures:  Please read your contract and SCA guidelines.  There are specific tasks you must follow and there are timelines and deadlines you may have to meet or it may cost you dearly

The U.S. Department of Labor has released its annual memorandum noting a rate increase for Service Contract Act (SCA) Health and Welfare Fringe Benefits. Effective June 27, 2023, the new rate is $4.98 per hour or $199.20 per week or $863.20 per month and is required in all government contract bids, or other service contracts awarded on or after June 27, 2023. For existing service contracts, the new rate will go into effect on the anniversary date following June 27, 2023.

SCA benefit change notices are not always sent directly to contractors or subcontractors, so we wanted to make sure members that may be affected were aware of this update/change.
