Changes to ALL Compensation for Government Contractors
As part of the 2013 Bipartisan Budget Act, Congress reduced the contractor and subcontractor compensation cap from $952,308 to $487,000, a 49 percent reduction. The cap will be adjusted annually to reflect the change in the Employment Cost Index for all workers as calculated by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. As always, contractors can pay whatever amounts they deem appropriate, but the government will only reimburse (at the most) to the cap. Previously, Congress, in the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act, applied the ceiling on reimbursable pay to all Department of Defense (“DoD”), Coast Guard, and National Aeronautics and Space.
