Presented by Matthew Schoonover of SCHOONOVER +MORIARTY LLC

2020 saw a variety of struggles for small business government contractors. It also saw its fair share of changes, particularly in the rules and regulations that govern their work with Uncle Sam.

In this presentation, government contracts attorney Matthew Schoonover will discuss some of the most substantive changes to the rules and regulations that impact small business government contractors—including changes to the SBA’s mentor/protégé, joint venture, and 8(a) regulations; changes for size calculations; and upcoming changes to the service-disabled veteran-owned small business program. Matt will also discuss the impact of the National Defense Authorization Act and increasing cybersecurity requirements.  With this information, attendees will understand what rules have changed, and how those changes might impact their business going forward.
