painting and decorating. Distinguishing DBA and SCA work under a Federal Contract Distinguishing DBA and SCA work under federal contracts is an important coverage concern. Federal contracting agencies are responsible to designate application of DBA and SCA requirements to different work under single contracts. The potential for cost adjustment changes occasioning increased agency costs and administrative inconvenience

for the agency and its contractor(s), may result from failure to apply the DBA and SCA labor standards appropriately.

a future construction project. SCA-covered if subsequent construction is not contemplated. AAM # 190 provides further discussion. DBA or SCA - Drilling Work

SCA-covered if the contract is for exploratory drilling: For a purpose other than construction; or To obtain data for use in engineering studies (29 C.F.R. 4.130(a)(16)). DBA-covered when drilling for holes: e.g. water wells, oil wells, or other improvements (29 C.F.R. 5.2(i)). AAM # 55 provides discussion with examples.
