As Louis wrote, you can convert to TIF in GIMP (RGB only for the time
being), but I somehow doubt that it wouldn't work with JPEGs either. You
have to make sure that your output is "Printer" in PDF settings. Scribus
will then create a file with colours in CMYK colourspace.
As for the CMYK-values of the fill colour, the easiest way is to write
down the CMYK values from scribus and tell the printer what they are
(this colour is C= , M= , Y= , K= ). I always do that to make sure I get
what I want.

This is a strange thing that happens in many small shops. They try to
use QXP (Xtensions) for everything, including impositions and
separations. The result are problems that would not occur with Acrobat +
PitStop or other well suited programmes.
