During the Summer of 2016, the SBA made a number of changes to rules concerning how joint ventures can be awarded small business contracts, including set-asides for 8(a) Participants, HUBZone Small Businesses, WOSB's, SDVOSB's and small businesses. A related development at that time was the SBA's unveiling of its "All Small" Mentor-Protege Program. The most significant impact of these changes is the expansion of opportunities for businesses to compete for and perform under set-asides that they otherwise would not be eligible for. On March 10, 2017 at 12:30 pm (EST), Mark Amadeo and Jennifer Schaus, Principal & Founder of Jennifer Schaus & Associates will discuss the rule changes, the unique opportunities now available to companies that align in joint ventures, and marketing tips for joint ventures looking for their next government contract.
