Teaming Arrangements, Joint Ventures, and Mentor-Protégé Relationships:

Are you a small business looking to expand your capabilities? A large business looking for access to set-aside contracts? In either case, teaming, joint venturing or forming a mentor-protégé relationship can greatly expand your Federal contracting opportunities. When done incorrectly, however, these types of agreements can have disastrous consequences for both large and small businesses. In this session, we will cover the right way to use teaming and joint ventures to your advantage.

Protests and Size/Eligibility Investigations

Sign up for this webinar and learn how to use debriefings and protests as an affirmative tool to get the contract you deserve. We will explain the differences between the various types of protests (Bid Protests, Size Protests, and Status Protests) and Size/Eligibility Investigations and walk you through the who, what, when, where, why & how of filing a protest. We will also touch upon the other side of protests, teaching you how to defend against, or even avoid, protests filed by competitors.
