Peter Ford and Meghan Leemon with PilieroMazza will discuss the importance of having a well-shaped bidding strategy that includes joint venturing and participating in SBA’s All Small Mentor-Protégé Program.
Topics covered include:
- SBA’s rules for joint ventures;
- the advantages/disadvantages of joint venturing in the federal arena;
- the eligibility requirements for the All Small Mentor-Protégé Program;
- and the benefits the program has to offer.
In addition, the session will touch on looming changes to the joint venture rules and the All Small Mentor-Protégé Program, such as consolidating the 8(a) Mentor-Protégé Program with the All Small Mentor-Protégé Program, eliminating SBA approval of 8(a) joint ventures for competitive contracts, and relaxing the requirement that a protégé can have only two mentors in its lifetime.
