Give Me 5:  Follow the Money!

 

By:Ann Sullivan, WIPP Chief Advocate

 

NEW DATE:  Thursday, March 30, 2017*4:00 eastern / 3:00 central / 1:00 pacific

 

Understanding your customer and how to do business with them is a key element to success. Unlike commercial work, federal government contracting information is public knowledge and is accessible to everyone – but you have to know where to look. • How much of your product/service does the government consume? • Who in the government buys what you sell? • How and when do they buy it? This webinar provides you with very specific information on how to find the information you need to build a government strategy including a concise checklist for success.

In today’s competitive market, protests are an inevitable feature of most procurements. Accordingly, understanding the complex web of regulations and requirements relating to asserting and defending protests is critical to becoming a successful government contractor.  In this webinar we will walk you through the who, what, when, where, why and how of filing a bid protest.  You will learn how to use debriefings and protests as an affirmative tool to get the contracts you want, as well as strategies for maximizing your chances for a positive outcome.  We will also cover how to defend against bid protests brought by their competitors.

Give Me 5: Size and Status Protests, and Size/Eligibility Investigations

 

By:  Maria Panichelli, Partner, Cohen Seglias

 

Wednesday, July 12, 2017  *  2:00 eastern / 1:00 central / 11:00 pacific

 

Many small business set-aside procurements ultimately end up involving not only bid protests, but size or status protests.  If not properly dealt with, these protests have disastrous consequences: they can result in a contractor’s loss of the contract, as well as its eligibility to compete for other set aside contracts.  In this webinar, we will cover the differences between types of protests, common pitfalls (including affiliation, conditional ownership and conditional control) that can form the basis of a protest, and how to protect yourself and defend against these protests.   Agency-initiated size/status investigations will also be discussed.

By:  Maria Panichelli, Partner, Cohen Seglias

  

Wednesday, October 18, 2017  *  2:00 eastern / 1:00 central / 11:00 pacific

 

There is no hotter topic in federal contracting than teaming and joint venturing.  While many contractors know the terms, not as many fully understand the requirements necessary to draft enforceable agreements.  In this session, we will cover the right way to use teaming and joint ventures to your advantage. We will discuss how to form an eligible JV, the proper procedures for entering into an enforceable teaming agreement, important clauses you should include in these types of agreements, as well as common pitfalls you should avoid. We will consider the practical implications of negotiating terms of a teaming or JV agreement from the both the prime and subcontractor perspectives. We will also discuss other partnering strategies, including mentor-protégé relationships. Recent developments in this area of law will also be covered.
