Every year, the Federal Government allocates approximately 23% of all contracting dollars -- roughly $100 Billion -- to be spent on contracts or subcontracts involving “small” businesses. Much of that money is set aside for contracts with companies that qualify as “small” businesses under Small Business Administration (SBA) regulations, while an additional significant portion of that money is also expended for small businesses as subcontractors to large businesses. Since some small business set-asides are awarded as sole source contracts, while other set-asides trigger less competition because large businesses are excluded, qualifying as a “small” business can be a very attractive proposition. But that is a two-edged sword because the pool of money set aside for small businesses can be a lure to people or companies that do not qualify or a temptation to small businesses to try to win contracts that they cannot perform without being overly reliant on large business teammates. The purpose of this virtual class series, which is presented by a very experienced trio of prominent instructors and some special guests, is to present in a clear and (hopefully) entertaining way how the SBA’s web of complex rules works, what new rules have emerged in recent months in response to changes directed by Congress, and what court and administrative decisions have impacted the rules.
All sessions will take place Tuesdays, 11:00 am – 12:30 pm (ET).
