Crowell & Moring is offering a two-part webinar series for government contractors on past and anticipated developments in procurement statues and regulations concerning small businesses.  

The federal procurement system provides benefits for small and disadvantaged businesses, such as the ability to compete for set-aside procurements, receive sole-source awards, and access assistance through such programs as the 8(a) Business Development Program or the Small Business Administration’s (SBA) Mentor-Protégé Program.  The statutes and complex rules and regulations governing this system have recently undergone many important changes—as Crowell has previously addressed in blog posts covering SBA’s rulemaking on the consolidation of its mentor-protégé programs and the SBA Rule implementing a one-year extension for 8(a) BD status—with more changes anticipated this year as required by the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021.  

Crowell is offering two webinars for different target audiences in which we will discuss the same recent and coming changes—but one will be crafted for small businesses and one for other-than-small contractors. 

The first webinar is for any small businesses contracting at the federal level. Crowell will discuss the recent changes to the SBA’s mentor-protégé program, the 8(a) program, the HUBZone program, the 2020 rollout of the SBA’s WOSB certification program, and the NDAA-required rollout of an SBA SDVOSB certification program. We will also cover changes related to when size and status recertifications are required of small businesses, among other topics. We will also discuss compliance risks faced by small businesses, including the False Claims Act and other enforcement tools.
