There is no hotter topic in federal government contracting than teaming and joint venturing. Whether you are a small business looking to expand your capabilities or a large business looking for access to set-aside contracts, teaming and joint venturing can greatly expand your federal contracting opportunities. While most contractors know the terms, many do not fully understand the requirements of enforceable agreements. When done incorrectly, teaming and joint venturing can have serious consequences.
During this webinar, experienced government contracting attorney Maria Panichelli explained how contractors can use teaming, joint venturing and the mentor protégé program to their advantage. Attendees learned proper procedures for entering into an enforceable teaming agreement and the essential clauses to include in these types of agreements, as well as common pitfalls to avoid. Attendees also learned how to form an eligible small business JVs, and how to navigate the SBA mentor-protégé programs. The practical implications of negotiating terms of a teaming or JV agreement from both the prime and subcontractor perspectives were discussed.
