APTAC invited to provide input on regulatory barriers
APTAC Staff article
The U.S. Senate Armed Services Committee is seeking input from PTACs and their clients on a number of issues relating to DoD small business contracting. In an effort to compile first-hand reports from small business currently engaged in – or pursuing – DoD contracting, APTAC has created a brief survey and is inviting small businesses to respond.
Some specific questions relate to the Service Contract Act (which requires requires contractors and subcontractors performing services on prime contracts in excess of $2,500 to pay service employees in various classes no less than the wage rates and fringe benefits found prevailing in the locality, or the rates contained in a predecessor contractor’s collective bargaining agreement) and high tech firms, but more general information about challenges – and particularly regulatory challenges – is being sought as well.
The deadline for submitting comments is close of business on Monday, March 21, 2016.
