Benefit Administration Technology

State of the Art Benefit Administration Technology
The cornerstone of our service offerings is the CBIZ Complete Benefit Administration System, or CBAS. CBAS is a cloud-based technology platform which integrates the knowledge of benefit professionals, information systems specialists and Service Contract Act (SCA) and the Davis Bacon Act (DBA) experts. Developed first in 1998 to manage the complex benefit requirements of the JBOSC contract at Kennedy Space Center, CBAS was designed specifically for government contractors to administer all aspects of prevailing wage benefits - from enrollment and eligibility administration to premium administration and hourly fringe benefit compliance. CBAS is supported by an in-house team of full time software developers and is constantly being upgraded and enhanced to provide our government contracting clients with cutting edge technology and administrative services.
