Teaming Considerations to Win Large Contracts and Subcontracts

August 23, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

It’s no secret that federal government contract awards are hard to earn. This is becoming truer and truer as Uncle Sam continues to consolidate awards.

In this age of consolidated contracts and increased competition, small business contractors must take every advantage to best position themselves for awards. Thankfully, the Small Business Administration offers great tools to do so: its mentor/protégé program and through small business joint ventures or teaming.

In this presentation, government contracts attorney Matthew Schoonover will discuss the importance of these contracting tools, and why they might make sense for your small business. Armed with his experience assisting small businesses set up compliant mentor/protégé agreements, joint ventures, and subcontracting relationships, Matthew will share key considerations for each program, as well as considerations to keep in mind as your business navigates these relationships. Attendees will learn the benefits of participating and tips for success.
