Many small business contractors achieve competitive advantages by certifying as 8(a)’s, veteran owned or minority owned to achieve mandated set-asides by the Federal government. If done right, these set-asides can yield substantial earnings to contract recipients. However, small business contractors must comply with a number of regulations governing their classifications and set-asides. Our small business contracting webinars are aimed helping small, budget-conscious contractors learn what they need to know to manage their set-asides and upcoming changes to procurement regulations by giving you access to top industry experts at a fraction of the cost of a one-on-one consultation.

This 90-minute webinar will discuss recent regulatory developments under the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act (“NDAA”), an anticipated SBA final rule regarding small business subcontracting plans, and a recent proposed rule related to small business status and size protest and appeals procedures. The webinar will cover recent expansion of the SBA’s 8(a) mentor-protégé program to all small businesses, including a conformance process for non-DoD agency-level mentor-protégé programs. It will also address key developments related to calculation of the limitations on subcontracting. Sources of increased penalties, reporting mechanisms, and government oversight will also be discussed. The webinar will also explore some proposed changes to the FAR provisions on size and status protest and appeal procedures and changes to the nonmanufacturer rule in order to mirror previous regulatory changes.
