Washington, DC (PRWEB) July 06, 2012

This webinar is a must for SDVOSB’s, Women Owned Small Businesses, 8(a)’s, HUBZONE and minority owned small business contractors, their executives, legal counsel, contract administrators, business managers, and others seeking a greater understanding of tools small business contractors have at their disposal to win more business from the federal government.

The process for small businesses seeking to contract or already contracting with the federal government is complicated, expensive and often an uphill battle. The federal government recognizes this fact and has created a variety of mechanisms to make it easier for small businesses to succeed as federal contractors. In particular, protests and set-asides can be useful tools for small business contractors to maintain or win contracts.

Specifically, the webinar will examine protest issues contractors may not be aware of, such protective orders and the risk the process poses to proprietary information belonging to the contractor. Additionally, the webinar will examine that concept of challenging an agency’s decision not to set-aside work and how to handle a challenge to your award. Ms. Graves will also discuss both sides of SBA size protests in detail so that contractors are equipped to challenge a set-aside award they feel has been wrongfully given to a large business or effectively respond to a challenge of their own status as a small business.

The 90-minute webinar, entitled “David vs. Goliath: Opportunities and Strategies for Small Contractors" is scheduled for Thursday, July 26, at 1:00 PM Eastern.
