SBA Set-Aside Contracts: Guidance for Federal Contractors
Interplay Between Entity Size Standards, Affiliations, and Bid Protests in the Procurement Process
A live 90-minute CLE webinar with interactive Q&A
This CLE webinar will provide critical insights for government contractors and their counsel on qualifying and competing for set-aside contracts with the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). Our expert panel will discuss entity size requirements and affiliations and how each factor into the qualification for and potential protest of set-aside procurements.
- SBA set-asides
- SBC qualifications
- Size standards
- Annual revenue: 13 C.F.R. 121.104
- Number of employees: 13 C.F.R. 121.106
- The protest process
The panel will review these and other critical issues:
- What steps can federal contractors take to preserve the advantages of an SBC qualification when pursuing set-aside awards?
- What impact do guidelines like the “ostensible subcontractor rule” and “newly organized concern rule” have on affiliation determinations?
- How can SBCs best navigate the requirements of 13 C.F.R 121.104 and 13 C.F.R. 121.106 when complying with procurement-specific size standards?
