If you want to learn some of the best-kept secrets of successful small businesses dominating in the federal marketplace, then this course is for you. Learning how to leverage teaming and joint ventures to gain a competitive advantage will enable you to successfully pursue, win, and perform some of the largest government contracts available to small businesses.

This course includes a step-by-step process that will teach you:

  • how to conduct market research to gain critical opportunity intel long in advance of solicitations published to the general public;
  • how to identify, court, and secure ideal teaming partners, and
  • how to engage the support needed to finalize your teaming and joint venture agreements.

This course is suited for both new and seasoned contractors who are interested in pursuing larger federal contracts. If you’ve been passing on opportunities due to lack of experience and past performance, geographic performance restrictions, bonding limitations, and other factors, then this course is for you. 

You will learn that with the right teaming partners, you can eliminate most of the barriers limiting you and open new doors that may otherwise take years to open.

Target Audience: Anyone who wants to learn how teaming and joint ventures work in the federal marketplace; current contractors looking to gain a competitive edge and pursue larger opportunities.

    Carroll Bernard presented an informative tutorial of what “Teaming” looks like at the federal level. The Teaming information that was given to small businesses making efforts to work directly with the government was of great value. Mr. Bernard gave a clear explanation of what the evolution of Teaming looks like and how it is possible with long term planning and factual market research. I am grateful for this webinar and look forward to building onto this knowledge.

    Finally! As a company just entering the federal contracting space, so much of the information I had gathered from other sources seemed disjointed or even contradictory. Carroll Bernard very clearly connected some of the dots, while also offering sage advice on potential pitfalls. Highly recommend.
