Success Through a Compliant Winning Team (Part 3 of 3), Leveraging the Power of Mentor-Protégé Programs - Chew On This Web Seminar
11:00 am - 12:30 pm
So, you’ve decided to form a team or joint-venture to go after that Government set aside contract – but, are you fully aware of the rules and risks that apply to teaming arrangements? For small government contractors, teaming and joint venturing can be essential components of success. By teaming with other entities, small businesses can enhance their capabilities and offer more comprehensive solutions to the government. But teaming and joint venturing on government set-aside contracts is not without risk– there are many unique rules that must be followed, and many pitfalls for the unwary. In this series, government contracts attorney Steven Koprince explains– in plain English– the essential rules for joint venturing and teaming on federal set-aside contracts. In Part 3, Mr. Koprince discusses how to leverage the power of federal mentor-protégé programs (including the SBA’s “universal” mentor-protégé program) while staying on the right side of the law.
Once you’re registered, you’ll receive a confirmation email 24 hrs before the webinar with instructions on how to join the webinar. If you do not receive an email by February 21, please contact Suzanne Hartnett at suzanne.hartnett@networksnorthwest .org or call 231.929.5068.
