Webinar Details

Subject: Federal Contracting

Prerequisites: None

Duration: 90 minutes

Location: Your office or conference room, per telephone connection

Course Description:

Teaming arrangements, subcontracting and joint venture opportunities can turbo charge your growth and profitability in the federal marketplace. But if you don’t recognize red flags, they also can expose you to devastating criminal and monetary penalties.

For example, a common mistake can expose subcontractors to charges of violating the Truth in Negotiations Act. Even without officially being a subcontractor, affiliating with another company could disqualify you as a small business. Plus, poorly written subcontracting and mentor-protégé agreements can also turn growth potential into potential liability.

Here’s how to recognize red-flag dangers so you can reap the rewards of teaming arrangements without so many risks.

In this 90-minute webinar, contracting expert Jeffrey Weinstein shows you how to take red-flag risks out of teaming and subcontracting opportunities. You’ll learn how to avoid those “affiliation problems” that can ruin small business status and why the kitchen-sink approach is the wrong way to go in deciding which FAR clauses to include in a subcontract.

Strategies for more growth with less risk. You’ll discover today’s best practices for taking advantage of chances to grow plus the best strategies for avoiding mistakes that can put you in violation of requirements—and on the line for major penalties. It’s real-world guidance that you apply to your own teaming opportunities now and down the road. In addition, you’ll have the chance to ask your own questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.

Reserve your space now to enjoy more teaming rewards with fewer risks, including how to:

  • Understand the differences between teaming arrangements and joint ventures
  • Steer clear of affiliation problems that qualify you as an “ostensible” subcontractor—and disqualify you as a small business

  • Navigate the advantages and disadvantages of a mentor-protégé arrangement
  • Avoid common—but costly—problems in subcontracting
  • Troubleshoot teaming and joint-venture opportunities

Remember, teaming up doesn’t have to mean risking your status or facing huge fines, penalties and even criminal charges. Take this opportunity to learn where the red flags are and how to avoid them so you can reap the rewards.
