Lead Instructor of Service Contract Labor Standards Training Course on February 1-2
The Service Contract Labor Standards (formerly the Service Contract Act) is one of the most challenging acts in federal contracting. With more than 20 years of experience, Barbara has seen many federal contractors fall victim to several common areas of concern.
On February 1-2, Barbara will once again serve as lead instructor for Centre’s Service Contract Labor Standards training course. The content will cover the award and administration of covered contracts and provide detailed information on how to identify and mitigate risk under the SCLS, apply wage and benefit rules, avoid violations, fulfill SCLS obligations, and understand special compliance issues from the Department of Labor.
This course is designed for Contract Managers and Administrators, Contracting Officers and Specialists, Program Managers, Human Resource Managers, Executives, and any personnel responsible for preparing proposals.
See the Centre Training Calendar for more details and registration information.
NCMA SubCon Training Workshop on March 31
Barbara will be a featured workshop leader on March 31 at 8:30am for NCMA’s new SubCon Training Workshops (SubCon) event.
SubCon is designed to provide targeted subcontracting training by industry and government practitioners. A series of workshops will provide interactive discussions around discussions around buying, compliance, post-award management, and leadership.
Her advanced-level workshop – Things I Have Learned as an Arbitrator on How Not to Draft Agreements – will draw on her experience as an expert witness in prime subcontractor disputes and as an arbitrator on the Complex Disputes Panel of the American Arbitration Association. She has seen dozens of cases of “it was clear to me when I drafted it, so why are we in litigation?” Learn from the mistakes of others and avoid common ambiguities in teaming agreements, subcontracts, and other legal documents. If you draft any type of agreement, this session is for you.
More than 200 industry procurement professionals and government program managers are expected at the SubCon event.
