Small business contracting: A year in review

This week on Off the Shelf, David Black, partner at Holland & Knight, Ken Dodds, vice president and GovCon Industry Expert at Live Oak Bank, and Jon William, partner at PilieroMazza, provide an update on key small business policy, regulatory, and legal trends shaping the federal market.

Topics include the impact and federal response to the Ultima decision, the GAO-Court of Federal Claims bid protest split on the evaluation of mentor-protégé past performance, SBA changes to the non-manufacturer rule, FAR proposed rules on size/status recertification on multiple award contracts and the DoD and SBA guidance on joint venture facility security clearances.

The discussion also focuses on cybersecurity and what small business should focus on for compliance success, and provides insights and analysis that will assist small businesses in better understanding the rules of the road to success in the federal market.
