Join experienced federal contracting partner Maria Panichelli as she presents a three-part webinar series covering everything you need to know about Teaming, Joint Ventures, and the SBA’s Mentor Protégé Programs for the Washington State Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC).
There is no hotter topic in federal contracting than teaming, joint venturing, and mentor-protégé arrangements. However, the concepts and requirements relating to teams and joint ventures are often very misunderstood. In this beginners-level webinar, we will discuss the fundamental building blocks necessary to understanding the why and how of small business partnerships. We 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.
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, we will focus on the differences between teaming arrangements and joint ventures, and provide strategies for determining which type of partnership is right for you and your business.
Though teaming and joint venturing are a frequently discussed topic in the federal contracting circle, these concepts are often misunderstood. In this session, we will cover the right way to use teaming and joint ventures to your advantage. We will discuss how to form an eligible JV, the proper procedures for entering into an enforceable teaming agreement, important clauses you should include in these types of agreements, as well as common pitfalls you should avoid. We will consider the practical implications of negotiating terms of a teaming or JV agreement and will also discuss other partnering strategies, including mentor-protégé relationships.
