GovBizConnect presents Partners Ed DeLisle and Maria Panichelli in a 3-part educational webinar series "Teaming for Today" for government contractors.

Part I: Thursday, December 14, 2017 1:00pm-2:30pm

Back to Basics - Understanding the Lingo, Eligibility Issues, and Affiliation Concerns associated with Teaming and Joint Ventures
As many government contractors know, teaming, joint venturing, and mentor-protégé arrangements are hot topics. However, while these concepts are frequently discussed, they are just as frequently misunderstood. This is because contractors are often unaware of the basic legal building blocks on which these types of relationships are built and the situations for which they are intended.

In this beginners-level webinar, Ed and Maria will discuss the fundamental building blocks necessary to understanding the “why” and “how” of small business partnerships. They will explain what set aside contracts are, how to determine if you are eligible for the federal government’s small business programs, and common pitfalls that can prevent your eligibility for set-aside contracts and adversely impact your teaming/JV opportunities.

Part II: Wednesday, January 17, 2018 1:00pm-2:30pm

What’s Your Type? How to know whether Teaming, JVs, or a Mentor Protégé Relationship is Right for YOU
There are a number of different ways to form small business partnerships. Many contractors confuse teaming, joint venturing, and the formation of mentor protégé relationships. However, these types of partnerships have some major differences and raise different types of compliance concerns. In this webinar, experienced Federal government contracting attorneys Maria Panichelli and Ed DeLisle will focus on the differences between teaming arrangements and joint ventures, and provide strategies on determining which type of partnership is right for you and your business.

Part III: Wednesday, February 14, 2018 1:00pm-2:30pm
