Presented by Matthew Schoonover of SCHOONOVER +MORIARTY LLC

It’s no secret that federal government contract awards are hard to earn. This is becoming truer and truer as Uncle Sam continues to consolidate awards.

In this age of consolidated contracts and increased competition, small business contractors must take every advantage to best position themselves for award. Thankfully, the Small Business Administration offers great tools to do so: through the SBA’s mentor/protégé program, and through joint ventures or teaming.

In this presentation, government contracts attorney Matthew Schoonover will discuss the importance of these contracting tools, and why they might make sense for your small business. Attendees will learn how to apply and tips for success.
