Jeremy Scholtes and Christopher Denny, lawyers in the firm’s Government Contracts practice group, are presenting a workshop presentation at the 16th Annual Small Business Procurement Conference sponsored by Strengthening the Mid-Atlantic Region for Tomorrow (SMART) Organization. The 2-day event offers valuable insights from procurement experts in government, business, and academia that will benefit large contractors, small businesses, minority- and women-owned concerns, and businesses run by service-disabled veterans.
Federal government contracting presents pitfalls and complexities for small businesses, starting from the decision to go after a target-procurement through to close-out of the project. Even deciding whether to pursue a set-aside contract as a prime contractor, or to act as a subcontractor for a large business prime, involves commercial and compliance considerations that require specialized knowledge. In this session we will discuss teaming agreements (including a discussion of SBA mentor-protégé agreements), subcontracts, and what a small business can do in the event of issues arising during the procurement and performance phases of the work. The session will be split into pre-award and post-award considerations.
