Small business contracting plans are required for a majority of FAR-based contracts that exceed $700,000 ($1.5 million for construction) and are awarded to “other than small businesses.” This episode of PCI’s Subcontracting Summit will cover the legal requirements associated with the often misunderstood plans, a step-by-step overview of what a plan really is to include, and the goals and other types of requirements the Contracting Officer may include in an RFP. Our panel of experts will discuss strategies to consider before determining whether to use commercial or individual plans, and they will discuss obligations and penalties to consider if you do not meet your goals. The lively discussion will include real-life examples of the opportunities – and challenges – associated with this program unique to companies that do business with the Federal government.

The agenda for the training will include:

  • Contract requirements and a legal overview
  • Commercial vs. Individual Plans
  • Components of the Plan
  • Assessing your small business strategy and goals for subcontracting
  • Reporting and Risks
  • Challenges and Opportunities
  • Steps to Success

If you are perplexed by the twists and turns of subcontracting, the curve balls that prime contractors throw at you, and the challenges presented by your own subcontractors, we have just what you need! Join our instructors Cy Alba, Tim Sullivan, Bill Walter, as well as special guests, for PCI’s “Subcontracting Summit,” a series of nine 75-minute virtual webinars beginning in September.

You and your colleagues are invited to participate as our experienced faculty explains virtually every aspect of the subcontracting process over the nine-part series, using case studies based on actual events whenever possible. Whether you are a prime contractor preparing subcontracting plans or dealing with subcontracting plan audits, a subcontractor losing work share or not being paid, or trying to understand why certain terms show up in subcontracts and how the regulations relate to them, our instructors will provide you with real-life answers and guidance each month. Further, you will hear how each side views a particular subcontracting challenge and how smart contractors have resolved them. You’ll develop a better understanding of what the Federal government’s role in the process is, despite its attempts to stay out of it.

Our program will run every Wednesday from 2:00 p.m. Eastern to 3:15 Eastern beginning Wednesday, September 20, except for December.  Can you spare the time to participate in this exciting program?  Of course, you can!  In fact, you can’t afford to miss it!

  • Background
