Join Fox for the first installment in our webinar series on the Small Business Administration’s recent rule changes.

Set to take effect on November 16, the SBA’s 54-page final rule was adopted in response to government-wide regulatory reforms aimed at reducing costs.

Despite its name – Consolidation of Mentor-Protégé Programs and Other Government Contracting Amendments – the rule will have a far broader impact than the 8(a) program alone.

In this session, our presenters will explore Multiple Award Contracts and Requirements for Certification and Recertification.

Topics will include:

  • Timing for status recertification when bidding on set-aside task orders for both set-aside and unrestricted MACs
  • Significant changes to MACs, especially those exceeding five years and have multiple option years
  • Requirements for appropriate NAICS Codes for MACs and each task order
  • Additional certification requirements that will affect subcontractor self-certifications, mergers and acquisitions, and ownership changes
  • Impacts on large and small businesses
  • Anticipated trends in the industry
