This conflict gives rise to additional compliance challenges above and beyond the already complex obligations of SCA. This two-part article series, published in PSC’s Service Contractor Magazine, explores aspects of SCA compliance unique to this contracting environment, and provide tools and techniques for contractor risk mitigation.

Part 2: Post-award audits
Recognize key post-award compliance issues, including the management of multiple wage determinations, location based price variances at the task order level, and labor category compliance.
