2020 was a challenging year, and many expect those challenges to continue into 2021. Businesses must reevaluate outdated strategies and quickly adapt to the market. Even in trying economic times, the government continues to spend money, and with Biden’s American Jobs Plan, the current administration intends to invest $621 billion in transportation infrastructure over the next 10 years. Opportunities abound for those ready to take action.
If you are considering dipping a toe into the federal market – or if the government is already one of your clients – you should join us as we discuss the benefits of small business/large business partnering. We will also cover the overall impact of the Small Business Administration’s October 2020 Final Rule, which provides much needed clarity for government contractors (both large and small) on issues including:
• Multiple Award Contracts and Requirements for Certification and Recertification
• Affiliation Rules and Size Determinations
• Joint Venture Requirements
• SBA’s All Small Mentor-Protégé Program
Government contractors need to understand and process these changes to successfully win work – and keep winning in 2021 and beyond.
