In late 2019, the SBA issued a final rule, making several changes to the HUBZone program. In this course, government contract attorneys, Steven Koprince and Shane McCall of Koprince Law, discuss these changes as well as SBA’s related guidance and provide an overview of the HUBZone program’s requirements, including:

  • Ownership, control, and other HUBZone eligibility criteria.
  • Benefits: HUBZone set-asides, sole-source contracts, and price preference.
  • The principal office rule and why it may not be your headquarters. 
  • The 35% employee rule and the “attempt to maintain” standard. 
  • Who qualifies as an employee and what happens if they move. 
  • The clear line of fracture standard.
  • Annual certification.
  • Program examinations.
  • Maintaining compliance in a changing landscape.

If you’re a HUBZone concern trying to navigate these uncharted waters or have thought about obtaining HUBZone certification in the future, this course is for you.

    I have been trying to go through the steps of getting HUB Zone certified and this was a thorough explanation about the program and its requirements. Also given were some personal experiences with the program, which were helpful. I had no problem logging in or seeing and hearing the entire presentation. I also appreciated the notes that were available.
