Join Fox for the second session in our webinar series on the Small Business Administration’s recent rule changes. The SBA’s 54-page final rule, which was adopted in response to government-wide regulatory reforms aimed at reducing costs, took effect on November 16.

In this webinar, our presenters will explore joint venture requirements and the consolidation of the SBA Mentor-Protégé programs. We are excited to be joined by Audrey Mack with Atkins to provide us with industry insight and practical effects of the rule change.

Topics will include:

  • Consolidation of the 8(a) Mentor-Protégé Program into the SBA’s All Small Mentor-Protégé Program
  • Significant changes to joint ventures and affiliation
  • Impacts on large and small businesses
  • Limitations to sole source 8(a) contracts
  • Benefits of the new changes to the lifetime limit of mentors, SBA intervention and reapplication period for the 8(a) program
