Government contractors can always count on one thing from the federal government, and that is change. It can be tough for small businesses to keep tabs on changes and trends in federal procurement. Which events will pose a threat to small businesses and which ones will offer opportunities?
This course will highlight some recent changes and trends that small businesses may want to know. Some of these changes offer lucrative opportunities, such as the Air Force SBIR special topics, Other Transaction Agreements, and increases to procurement thresholds. Others may pose an impediment, such as increased emphasis on NIST-171 compliance, DCAA scrutiny on purchasing, and acquisition reform. Participants will receive high-level information about trends that will most likely impact their business with the federal government.
Target Audience: Novice and experienced small business contractors pursuing opportunities in the government marketplace.
