Exhibit A
Addendum No. 2017-1
SERVICE CONTRACT ACT OF 1965, AS AMENDED
(a) Defini�ions. 'Act,' as used in this clause, means the Service Contract Act of 1965, as
amended (41 U.S.C. 351, et seq.)
'Contractor,' as used in this clause or in any subcontract, shall be de�mied to refer to the
subcontractor, except in the term 'Government Prime Contractor.'
'Service employee,' as used in this clause, means any person engaged in the performance
of this contract other than any person employed in a bona fide executive, administrative,
or professional capacity, as these terms are defined in Part 541 of Title 29, Code of
Federal Regulations, as revised. It includes all such persons regardless of any contractual
relationship that may be alleged to exist between a Contractor or subcontractor and such
persons�
(b) Applicability. This contract is subject to the following provisions and to all other
. applicable provisions of the Act and regulations of the. Secretary of Labor (29 CPR Part
4). This clau·se does not apply to contracts or subcontracts administratively exempted by
the Secretary of Labor or exempted by 41 U.S.C. 356, as interpreted in Subpart C of 29
CFRPart 4;
(c) Compensation. (1) Each service employee employed in the performance of this
contract by the. Contractor or any subcontractor shall be paid not less than the minimum
monetary wages and shall be furnished fringe benefits in accordance with the wages and
fringe benefits determined by the Secretary of Labor, or authorized representative, as
·specified in any wage determination attached to this contract.
(2)(i) If a wage determination is attached to _this contract, the Contractor shall classify any
class of service employee which is not listed therein and which is to be ·employed under
the contract (i.e., the work to be performed is not performed by any classification listed in
the wage determination) so as to provide a reasonable relationship (i.e., appropriate level
of skill comparison) between such unlisted classifications and the classifications listed in
the wage determination. Such conformed class of employees shall be paid the monetary
wages and furnished the fringe benefits as are determined pursuant to the procedures in
this paragraph (c).
(ii) This conforming procedure shall be initiated by · the Contractor prior to the
perfonnance of contract work by the unlisted class of employee. The Contractor shall
submit Standard Form (SF) 1444, Request for Authorization of Additional Classification
and Rate, to the Contracting Officer no later than 30 days after the unlisted class of
employee performs any contract work. The Contracting Officer shall review the proposed
classification and rate and promptly submit the completed SF 1444 (which must include
information regarding the agreement or disagreement of the employees' authorized
representatives or the employees themselves together with the agency recommendation),
5

and all pertinent information to the Wage and Hour Division, Employment Standards
Administration, U.S. Depaitment of Labor. The Wage and Hour Division will approve,
modify, or disapprove the action or render a final determination in the event of
disagreement within 30 days of receipt or will notify the Contracting Office within 30
days of receipt that additional time is necessary.
(iii) The final determi_nation of the conformance action by the Wage and Hour Division
shall be transmitted to· the Contracting Officer who shall promptly notify the Contractor
of the action taken. Each affected employee shall be furnished by the Contractor with a
written copy of such determination or it shall be posted- as a part of the · wage
·
·
determination.
(iv)(A) The process of establishing wage and fringe benefit rates that bear a reasonable
relationship to those listed in a wage determination cannot be reduced to any single
formula. The approach used may vary from wage determination to wage determination
depending on the circumstances. Standard wage and salary administration practices which
rank various job classifications by pay grade pursuant to point schemes or other job
factors may, for example, be relied upon. Guidance may also be obtained from the way
different jobs are rated under Federal pay systems (Federal Wage Board Pay System and
the General Schedule) or from other wage determinations issued in the same locality.
Basic to the establishment of any conformable wage rate(s) is the concept that a pay
relationship should be maintained between job classifications based oli the skill required
and the duties perf01med.
(B) In the case of a contract modification, an exercise of an option, or extension of an
existing contract, or in any other case where a Contractor succeeds a contract under which
the classification in question was previously conformed pursuant to paragraph (c) of this
clause, a new conformed wage rate and fringe benefits may be assigned to the conformed
classification by indexing (i.e., adjusting) the previous conformed rate and fringe benefits
by an amount equal to the average (mean) percentage increase ( or decrease, where
appropriate) between the wages and fringe benefits specified for all clas�ifications to be
. used on the contract which are listed in the current wage dete1mination, and those
specified · for the corresponding classifications in the previously applicable wage
determination. Where conforming actions are accomplished in accordance with this
paragraph prior to the performance of contract work by the unlisted class of employees,
the Contractor shall advise the Contracting Officer of the action taken but the other
procedures in subdivision (c)(2)(ii) of this clause need not be followed.
(C) No employee engaged in performing work on this contract shall in any event be paid
less than the currently applicable minimum wage specified under section 6(a)(l) of the
Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938, as amended.
(v) The wage rate and fringe benefits finally determined under this subparagraph (c)(2) of
this clause shall be paid to all employees performing in the classification from the first
day on which contract work is performed by them in the classification. Failure to pay the
unlisted employees the compensation agreed upon by the interested pmties and/or finally
determined by the Wage and Hour Division retroactive to the date such class of
employees commenced contract work shall be a violation of the Act and this contract.
(vi) Upon discovery of failure to comply with subparagraph (c)(2) of this clause, the
Wage and Hour Division shall make a final determination of conformed classification,
wage rate, and/or fringe benefits which shall be retroactive to the date such class or
6

classes of employees commenced contract work.
(3) Adjustment of Compensation. If the term of this contract is more than 1 year, the
minimum monetary wages and fringe benefits required to be paid or furnished thereunder
to service employees under _this contract shall be subject to adjustment after l year and
not less often than once every 2-years, under wage determination issued by the Wage and
Hour Division.
(d) Obligation to Furnish Fringe Benefits. The Contractor or subcontractor may discharge
the obligation to furnish fringe benefits specified in the attachment or determined under
subparagraph {c)(2) of this clause by furnishing equivalent combinations of bona fide
:fringe.benefits, or by making equivalent or differential cash payments, only in accordance
with Subpart D of 29 CER Part 4.
(e) Minimum Wage. In the absence of a minimum wage attachment for this contract,
neither the Contractor nor any subcontraGtor under this contract shall pay any person
performing work under this contract (regardless of whether the person is a service
employee)_ less than the minimum wage specified by section 6(a)(l) of the Fair Labor
Standards Act of 1938. Nothing in this clause shall relieve the Contractor or any
subcontractor of any other obligation under law or contract for payment of a higher wage
to any employee.
(f) Successor Contracts. If this contract succeeds a contract subject to the Act under
which substantially the same services were furnished in the same locality and service
employees were paid wages and fringe benefits provided for in a collective bargaining
agreement, in the absence of the minimum wage attachment for this contract setting forth
such collectively bargained wage rates and fringe benefits, neither the Contractor nor any
subcontractor under this contract shall pay any service employee performing any of tl�e
contract work (regardless of whether or not such employee was employed under the
predecessor contract), less than the wages and fringe benefits provided for in such
collective bargaining agreement, to which such employee would have been entitled if
employed under the predecessor contract, including accrued wages and fringe benefits
and any prospective increases in wages· and :fringe benefits provided for under such
agreement. No Contractor or subcontractor under this contract may be relieved of the
foregoing obligation unless the limitations of 29 CFR 4.lb(b} apply or unless the
Secretary of Labor or the Secretary's authorized representative finds, after a hearing as
provided in 29 CFR 4.10 that the wages and/or fringe benefits provided for in such
agreement are substantially at variance with those which prevail for services of a
character similar in the locality, or determines, as provided in 29 CFR 4.11, that the
collective bargaining agreement applicable to service employees employed under the
predecessor contract was ncit entered into as a result_ of arm's length negotiations. Where it
is found in accordance with the review procedures provided in 29 CFR 4.10 and/or 4.11
and Parts 6 and 8 that some or all of the wages and/or fringe benefits contained in a
predecessor Contractor's collective bargaining agreement are substantially at variance
with those which prevail for services of a character similar in the locality, and/or that the
collective bargaining agreement applicable to service employees employeµ. under the
predecessor contract was not entered into as a result of arm's length negotiations, the
Depa1tment will issue a new or revised wage determination setting forth the applicable
wage rates and fringe benefits: Such determinations shall be made pmi of the contract or
subcontract, in accordance with the decision of the Administrator, the Administrative

Programmers who are compensated at a i-ate not less than $27.63 (or on a salary or fee basis at a rate
not less than $455 per week) an hour would likely qualify as exempt computer professionals, (29 C.F.R.
541.400) wage rates may not be listed on this wage determination for all occupations within those job
families. In addition, because this wage determination may not list a wage rate for some or all
occupations within those job families if the survey data indicates that the prevailing wage rate for the
occupation equals or exceeds $27.63 per hour conformances may be necessary for certain nonexempt
employees. For example, if an individual employee is nonexempt but nevertheless performs duties
within the scope of one of the Computer Systems Analyst or Computer Programmer occupations for
which this wage determination does not specify an SCA wage rate, then the wage rate for that employee
must be conformed in accordance with the conformance procedures described in the conformance note
included on this wage determination.
Additionally, because job titles vary widely and change quickly in the computer industry, job titles are
not determinative of the application of the computer professional exemption. Therefore, �he
exell)ption applies only to computer employees who s·atisfy the compensation requirements and whose
primary duty consists of:
(1) The application of systems an_alysis techniques and procedures, including consulting with users, to
determine hardware, software or system functional specifications;
(2) The de?ign, development, documentation, analysis, creation, testing or modification of computer
systems or programs, including prototypes, based on and related to user or_system design specifications;
{3) The design, document_ation, testing, creation or modification of computer programs related to
machine operating systems; or
(4) A combination of the aforementioned duties, the performance of which requires the same level of
skills (29 C.F.R. 541.400).
2) AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLERS AND WEATHER OBSERVERS - NIGHT PAY &SUNDAY PAY: If you work at
night as part of a regular tour of duty, you will earn a night differential.and receive an additional 10% of
basic pay for any hours worked between 6pm and 6am. If you are a full-time employed (40 hours a
week) and Sunday is part of your regularly scheduled workweek, you are paid at your rate of basic pay
plus a Sunday premium of 25% of your basic rate for each hour of Sunday work which is not overtime
{i.e., occasional work on Sunday outside the normal tour of duty is considered overtime work).

HAZARDOUS PAY DIFFERENTIAL: An 8 percent differential is applicable to employees employed in a
position that represents a high degree of hazard when working with or in close proximity to ordinance,
explosives, and.incendiary materials. This includes work such as screening, blending, dying, mixing, and
pressing of sensitive ordnance, explosives, and pyrotechnic compositions such as lead azide, black
powder and photoflash p_owder. All dry-house activities involving propellants or explosives.
Demilitarization, modification, renovation, demolition, and maintenance.operations on sensitive
ordnance, explosives and incendiary materials. All operations involving regrading and cleaning of
artillery ranges.
A 4 percent differential is applicable to employees employed in a position that represents a low degree
of hazard when working with, or in close proximity to ordnance, (or employees possibly adjacent to)
explosives and incendiary materials which involves potential injury such as laceration of hands, face, or
arms of the employee engaged_ in the operation, irritation of the skin, minor burns and the like; minimal
damage to immediate or adjacent work area or equipment being used; All operations involving,
unloading, storage, and hauling of ordnance, explosive, and incendiary ordnance material other than
small arms ammunition. These differentials are only applicableto work that has been specifically
designated by the agency for ordnance, explosives, and incendiary material differential pay.
** UNIFORM ALLOWANCE**
If employees are requir_ed to wear uniforms in the performance of this contract (either by the terms of
the Government contract, by the employer, by the state or local law, etc.), the cost of furnishing such
uniforms and maintaining (by laundering or dry cleaning) such uniforms is an expense that may not be
borne by an employee where such cost reduces the hourly rate below that required by the wage
determination. The Department of Labor will accept payment in accordance with the following
standards as compliance:
The contractor or subcontractor is required to furnish all employees with an adequate number of
uniforms without cost or to reimburse employees for the actu_al cost of t_he uniforms. In addition, where
uniform cleaning and maintenance is made the responsibility of the employee, all contractors and
subcontractors subject to this wage determination shall (in the absence of a bona fide collective
bargaining agreement providing for a different amount, or the furnishing of contrary affirmative· proof
as to the actual cost), reimburse all employees for such cleaning and maintenance at a rate of $3.35 per
week (or $.67 cents per day). However, in those instances where the uniforms furnished are made of·
"wash and wear" materials, may be routinely washed and dried with other personal garments, and do
not require any special treatment such as dry cleaning, daily washing, or commercial laundering in order
to meet the cleanliness or appearance standards set by the terms of the Government contract, by the
contractor, by law, or by the nature of the work, there is no requirement that employees be reimbursed
for uniform maintenance costs.
The duties of employees under job titles listed are those described in the "Service Contract Act Directory
of Occupations", Fifth Edition, April 2006, unless otherwise indicated. Copies of the Directory are
available on the Internet. A links to the Directory may be found on the WHD home page at
http:ljwww.dol.gov/esa/whd/ or through the Wage Determinations On-Line (WDOL) Web site at

REQUEST FOR AUTHORIZATION OF ADDITIONAL CLASSIFICATION AND WAGE RATE {Standard Form
1444 (SF 1444)}
Conformance Process:
The contracting officer shall require that any class of service employee which is not listed herein and
which is to be employed under the contract (i.e., the work to be performed is not performed by any
classification listed in the wage determination), be classified by the contractor so as to provide a
reasonable relationship (i.€!., appropriate level of skill comparison) between such unlisted classifications
and the classifications listed in the wage determination; Such conformed classes of employees shall be
paid the monetary wages and fur11ished the fringe benefits as are determined. Such conforming process
shall be initiated .by the contractor prior to the performance of contract work by such unlisted class(es)
of employees. The conformed classification, wage rate, and/or fringe benefits shall be retroactive to the
commencement date of the contract. {See Section 4.6 (C)(vi)} When multiple wage determinations are
included in a contract� a separate SF 1444 should be prepared for each wage determination to which a
class(es) is to be conformed.
The process for preparing a conformance request is as follows:

j

1) When preparing the bid, the contractor identifies the need for a conformed occupation(s) and
. computes a proposed rate(s}.
2} After contract award, the contractor prepares a written report listing in order proposed classification
title(s), a Federal grade equivalency (FGE) for each proposed classification(s), job description(s), and
rationale for proposed wage rate(s), including information regarding the agreement or disagreement of
the authorized representative of the employees involved, or where there is no authorized
representative, the l;!mployees themselves. This report should be submitted to the contracting officer
no later than 30 days after such unlisted class(es} of employees performs any contract work.
3) The contracting officer reviews the proposed action and promptly submits a report of the action,
together with the agency's recommendations and pertinent information including the position of the
· contractor and the employees, to the Wage and Hour Division, Employment Standards Administration,
U.S. Department of Labor, for review. (See section 4.6(b)(2} of Regulations 29 CFR Part 4).
4} Within 30 days of receipt, the Wage and Hour Division approves, modifies, or disapproves the action
via transmittal to the agency contracting officer, or notifies the contracting officer that additional time
will be required to process the request.
5} The contracting officer transmits the Wage and Hour decision to the contractor.
6) The contractor informs the affected employees.
Information required by the Regulations must be submitted on SF 1444 or bond paper.

When preparing a conformance request, the "Service Contract Act Directory of Occupations" (the
Directory) should be used to compare job definitions to insure that duties requested are not performed
by a classification already listed in the Wage determination. Remember, it is not the job title, but the
required tasks that determine whether a class is included in an established.wage determination.
Conformances may not be used to artificially split, combine, or subdivide classifications listed in the_
wage determination.

HOLIDAYS: A minimum of ten paid holidays per year: New Year's Day, Martin Luther
King Jr.·• s Birthda·y,· Washington's Birthday, Memorial Day, Independence Day,
Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veterans' Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day. (A
contractor may substitute for �ny of the named holidays another day off wi.th pay in
accordance with a plan communicated to the employees involved.) (See 29 CFR 4.174)
THE OCCUPATIONS WHICH HAVE NUMBERED FOOTNOTES IN PARENTHESES RECEIVE THE FOLLOWING:
1) COMPUTER EMPLOYEES: Under the SCA at section B(b), this wage determination does
not apply to any employee who individually qualifies as a bona fide executive,
administrative, or professional employee as defined in 29 C.F.R. Part 541. Because
most Computer System Analysts and Computer Programmers who are compensated at a rate
not less than $27.63 (or on a salary or fee basis at_a 'rate not less than $455 per
week) an hour would likely qualify as exempt computer professionals, (29 C.F.R. 541.
400) wage. rates may not be listed on this wage determination for all .occupations
within those job families. In addition, because this wage determination may not
list a wage rate for some or all occupations within those job families if the survey
data indicates that the prevailing wage rate for the occupation equals or exceeds
$27.63 per hour conformances may be necessary for certain nonexempt employees. For
example, if an individual employee is.nonexempt but neyertheless performs duties ·
within the scope of one of the Computer Systems Analyst or Computer Programmer
occupations for which this wage determination· does not specify an SCA wage rate,
then the wage rate for that employee-must be conformed in accordance with the
conformance procedures described in the conformance note included on this wage
determination.
Additionally, because job titles vary widely and change quickly in the computer
industry, job titles are not determinative of the application of the computer
professional exemption. Therefore, the exemption applies only to computer employees
who satisfy the compensation requirements and whose primary duty c,:msists of:
(1) The application of systems analysis techniques and procedures, including
consulting with users, to detennine hardware, software or system functional
specifications;
(2} The design, development, documentation, analysis, creation, testing or
modification of computer systems or programs, including protot'ypes, based on and
related to user or system design specificati9ns;
(3) The design, documentation, testing, creation. or modification of. compute·r
programs related to machine operating systems; or·
(4) A combination of the aforementioned duties, the performance of which
requires the same level of skills. (29 C.F:R. 541.400).
2) AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLERS AND WEATHER OBSERVERS - NIGHT PAY & SUNDAY PAY: If you
_work at night as part of a regular tour of duty, you will earn a night differential
and receive an additional 10% of basic pay for any hours worked between.6pm and 6am.
If you are a full-time employed (40 hours a week) and Sunday is part of your
regularly scheduled workweek, you are paid at your rate of basic pay plus a Sunday
premium of 25% of your basic rate for. each hour of Sunday work which is not overtime
(i.e. occasional work on Sunday outside the normal tour of duty is considered
overtime work).

**

HAZARDOUS PAY DIFFERENTIAL **

An 8 percent differential is applicable to employees employed in a position that
represents a high degree of hazard when working with or in close proximity to
ordnance, explosives, and incendiary materials. This includes work such as
screening, blending, dying, mixing, and pressing of.sensitive ordnance, explosives,
and pyrotechnic compositions such as lead azide, black powder and photoflash powder.
All dry-house activities involving propellants or explosives. Demilitarization,
modification, renovation, demolition, and maintenance operations on sensitive
ordnance, explosives and incendiary materials. All operations involving re-grading

9/27/2016

Page 9of10
and cleaning of artillery ranges,
A 4 percent differential is applicable to �mployees employed.in a position that
represents a· low degree of hazard when working with, or in close proximity to
ordnance, (or employees possibly adjacent to) explosives and incendiary materials
which involves potential injury such as laceration of hands, face, or arms of the
employee engaged in the operation, irritation of the skin, minor burns and the like;
minimal damage to immediate or adjacent work area or equipment being used. All
operations involving,. unloading, storage, and hauling of ordnance, explosive, and
incendiary ordnance material other than small arms ammunition. These differentials
are only applicable to work that has been specifically designated by the agency f�r
ordnance, explosives, and incendiary material differential pay.
** UNIFORM ALLOWANCE **·
If employees are required to wear uniforms in the performance of this contract
(either by the terms of the Government contract, by the employer, by the state or
local law, etc.), the cost of furnishing such uniforms and maintaining (by
laundering or dry cleaning) such uniforms is an expense that may not be borne by an
employee where such cost reduces the hourly rate below that required by the wage
determination. The Department of Labor wili accept payment in accordance with the
following standards as compliance:
The contractor or subcontractor is required to furnish all employees with an
adequate number of uniforms without cost or to reimburse employees for the actual
cost of the uniforms. In addition,- where un�form cleaning and maintenance is made
the responsibility of the employee,· all contractors and subcontractors subject to
this wage determination shall (in the absence of a bona fide collective bargaining
agreement providing for a different amount, or the furnishing of contrary
affirmative proof a� to the actual cos.t); reimburse all employees for such cleaning
and maintenance at a rate of $3.35 per week (or $.67 cents per day).· However, in
those instances where the uniforms furnished are made· of "wash and wear"
materials, may be routinely washed and dried with other personal garments, and do
not require any special treatment such as dry cleaning, daily washing, or commercial
laundering in order to meet the cleanliness or appearance standards set by-the terms
of the Government contract, by the contractor, by law, .or by the nature of the work,
there is no requirement that employees be reimbursed for uniform maintenance costs.
** SERVICE CONTRACT ACT DIRECTORY OF OCCUPATIONS **
The duties of employees under job titles listed are those described in the
"Service Contract Act 'Directory of Occupations'i, Fifth Edition (Revision 1),
dated September 2015, unless otherwise indicated.
**-REQUEST FOR AUTHORIZATION OF ADDITIONAL CLASSIFICATION AND WAGE RATE, Standard
Form 1444 (SF-1444) **
Conformance Process:
The contracting officer shall require that any class of service employee which is
not listed herein and which is to be employed under the contract (i.e., the work to
be·performed i's not performed by any classification listed in the wage
determination), be classified by the contractor so as to provide a reasonable
relationship (i.e., appropriate level of skill comparison) between such unlisted
classifications and the classifications listed in the wage determination (See 29 CFR
4.6(b)(2) (i)). Such conforming procedures shall be initiated by the contractor
prior to the performance of contract work by such unlisted class(es) of employees
(See 29 CFR 4.6(b) (2) (ii)). The Wage and Hour Division shall make a final
determination of conformed classification, wage rate, and/or fringe benefits which
shall be paid to all employees performing in the classification from the first day
of work on which contract work is performed by them in the classification. Failure
to pay such unlisted employees the compensation agreed upon by the interested
parties and/or fully determined by the Wage and Hour Division retroactive to the

9/27/2016

Page 10 of 10
date such class of employees commenced contrac.t work shall be a violation of the Act
and this contract. (See 29 CFR 4. 6(b)(2) (v)) . When multiple wage determinations are
included in a contract, · a separate SF-1444 should be prepared for each wage
determination to which a class(es) is to be conformed.
The process for preparing a conformance request is as follows:
1) When preparing the bid, the contractor identifies the need for a conformed
occupation(s) and computes a proposed rate(s) .
. 2) After contract award, the contractor prepares a written report listing in order
the proposed classification title(s), a Federal grade equivalency (FGE) for each
proposed classification(s), job description(s), and rationale for proposed wage
rate(s), including information regarding the agreement or disagreement of the
authorized representative of the employees involved, or where there is no authorized
representative, the employees themselves·. This report should be submitted to the
contracting officer no later than 30 days after such unlisted class(es) of employees
performs any contract work.
3) The contracting officer reviews the proposed action and promptly submits a report
of the action, together with the agency's recommendations and pertinent
information i_ncluding the position of the contractor and the employees, to the U.S.
Department of Labor, Wage and Hour Division, for review (See 29 CFR 4.G(b)(2)(ii)).
4) Within 30 days of receipt, the Wage· and Hour Division approves, modifies, or
disapproves the action via transmittal to the agency contracting officer, or
notifies the contracting officer that additional time will be required to process
the request.
5) The contracting officer transmits the Wage and Hour Division's decision to the
contractor.
6) Each affected employee shall be furnished by the contractor with a written copy
of such determination or it shall be posted as a part of the wage determination (See
29 CFR 4 . 6 (b)(2) (iii)).
Information required by the Regulations must be submitted on SF-1444 or bond paper.
Wheri preparing a conformance request, ·the "Service Contract Act Directory of
Occupations" should be used to compare job definitions to ensure that duties
requested are not performed by a classification already listed in the wage
determination. Remember, it is not the job title, but t�e required tasks that
determine whether a class is included in. an established wage determination.
Conformances may not be used to artificially split, combine, or subdivide
classifications listed in the wage determination (See 29 CFR 4.152(c)(1)).
