The benefits of large and small businesses collaboration are especially noticeable in today’s federal market. While the Government wants to encourage small business growth and development, it at the same time, wants the highest qualified companies to perform its contracts. Increasingly, the Government is looking to non-price factors to award its contracts to the company providing the “best value” to the Government. It used to be the case that under sealed bidding, the lowest-priced proposal won the job. Increasingly, Government solicitations are looking to a company’s experience, personnel qualifications, and technical expertise as the most important considerations in making award determinations.
Large and small business partnership provides large businesses access to a greater number of contracts that will be set aside for small businesses, meanwhile providing small businesses with the capabilities necessary to compete and win these contracts.
This one-hour seminar provides a primer on forming compliant teaming, joint venture and mentor-protégé relationships to pursue opportunities with the federal government.
