New Federal Contracting Laws & Crucial Small Business Administration (SBA) Program Updates

Federal government laws are constantly changing. Compliance with these new laws is crucial to maintain your small business certifications, your status as a responsible contractor and to successfully complete projects and receive positive Contractor Performance Assessment Report (CPAR) ratings.

In this webinar, you’ll learn about new SBA program updates that can benefit small businesses, new laws and regulations as well as recent size and bid protest decisions that can help you from lessons learned from other contractors. We’ll also cover:

  • Legal requirements and potential risks to understand and address before teaming, joint venture or Mentor Protégé agreement is prepared.
  • Impact of COVID-19 on federal contractors and recent developments in reimbursement for PPE employee gear, force majeure and delay damages relief, Stop Work Order and other Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) clauses that can provide contractors with relief.
  • Practical tips to minimize contract disputes and help avoid termination, suspension or debarment.
