The latest coronavirus relief bill extends Section 3610 authority to the end of the fiscal year. The Senate voted 93-6 to approve the amendment, which allows the government to pay contractors who can’t safely access their workplaces.

  • David Berteau, President and CEO of the Professional Services Council, explained that Section 3610 makes it possible to keep key contractors on the payroll when they cannot access the facility or have to work remotely.
  • Berteau said he would like to see Section 3610 authority made permanently available across the federal government so it would not have to keep being reextended.
  • Program offices have the ability to decide which costs to cover, which Berteau said has worked well, and he said Section 3610 does not need additional funding.
