Runtime: 1 hour and 32 minutes

Small businesses receive billions of dollars in federal, state, and local contracts every year. Accessing these funds, however, requires companies, and their counsel, to navigate nuanced rules on how to determine which companies are small, who qualifies for various socio-economic categories, and how these firms can work with larger entities.
The expansion of SBA’s mentor-prot?g? program to include all small businesses has only increased the small business share of the market and the complexities related to regulating it. At the same time, while small business award dollars are increasing, there is a consolidation in the number of small business entities receiving awards.
Topics will include:
- Emerging small business issues and opportunities
- Constitutional challenges to preference programs
- Subcontracting, partnering, and joint ventures
- The role of small business credits in award decisions
- State/local-, minority-, and women-owned business enterprises
