In partnership with the Virginia Procurement
Technical Assistance Program
The SBA’s affiliation rules are a key component of eligibility for all of the federal procurement programs for small businesses. Indeed, whether two firms are affiliated can make the difference between winning or losing a protest and a valuable set-aside contract award. Therefore, large and small businesses that participate on set-aside contracts need to understand how affiliation arises and how it can be avoided. This session will give an extensive overview of the SBA’s affiliation rules, discuss exclusions from affiliation, and provide common pitfalls and tips to avoid affiliation.
Training Topics: Government Contracting, Intermediate Level, Introductory Level, Legal Issues, Risk Management, Selling to Government, Set Aside Certifications and Designations, Subcontracting
