For federal contractors, 2019 has been a year of major changes, and 2020 promises many more to come. In this presentation, government contracts expert Steven Koprince covers some of the most important legal developments of 2019, including:
- Overhaul of the SBA small business size standards under the Small Business Runway Extension Act, and further inflationary size standard adjustments
- SBA’s proposal of a long-awaited formal woman-owned small business certification requirement
- Proposed changes to the 8(a) Program’s eligibility criteria, which would make more companies eligible for this powerful certification
- SBA decisions providing important compliance guidance for SDVOSBs and VOSBs
- The blue-ribbon Section 809 Panel’s recommendation to eliminate DoD small business set-asides
- And much more
The presentation ends with a look into the crystal ball at changes on the horizon next year – starting with the long-awaited FAR update on the limitations on subcontracting and the elimination of WOSB self-certification.
Target Audience: Novice and experienced small business contractors pursuing opportunities in the government marketplace
