    Please join PilieroMazza attorney's Meghan Leemon ans Sam Finnerty for lunch on December 5, 2019, as they share details on SBA's proposed rule and what this means for the government contractors in the 8(a), joint venture and mentor-protege programs, as well as the impact of the proposed changes governing size, status, and re certification affecting all small businesses. PilieroMazza is working in conjunction with the Howard County Chamber of Commerce to be proactive on this proposed rule and to disseminate details to the government contracting community as quickly as possible.

    On Thursday, December 5th, Govology is hosting the webinar "2019 Federal Contracting Year End Review", presented by Steven Koprince. As a current subscriber to our SmallGov Con monthly newsletter, we are happy to offer you a unique code to receive a 25% off discount! 

    For federal contractors, 2019 has been a year of major changes, and 2020 promises many more to come. In this presentation, Steven Koprince covers some of the most important legal developments of 2019, including: 

    • Overhaul of the SBA small business size standards under the Small Business Runaway Extension Act, and further inflationary size standard adjustment
    • SBA's proposal of a long-awaited formal woman-owned small business certification requirement
    • Proposed changes to the 8(a) Program's eligibility criteria, which would make more companies eligible for this powerful certification
    • SBA decisions providing important compliance guidance for SDVOSBs and VOSBs
    • The glue-ribbon Section 809 Panel's recommendation to eliminate DoD small business set-asides
    • And much more!

    The presentation ends with a look into the crystal ball at changes on the horizon next year--starting with the long-awaited FAR update on the limitations on subcontracting and the elimination of WOSB self-certification.

    Changes to SBA's HUBZone Program Are Here:
    Their Impact on Your Business Goals

    Date/Time:

    December 10, 2019, at 2:00 PM EST

    Speakers:
    Jon Williams
    Katie Flood

    Effective December 26, 2019, the Small Business Administration (SBA) will implement final rules overhauling regulations for the Historically Underutilized Business Zone Program (HUBZone Program). The new rules will (1) offer HUBZone firms reduced regulatory burdens, (2) help government agencies by eliminating ambiguities in the regulations, and (3) make it easier for HUBZone firms to understand and comply with Program requirements.
     
    To get ahead of the new rules, please join Jon Williams and Katie Flood—members of PilieroMazza’s Government Contracts Group—on December 10, 2019, for a webinar geared toward understanding how the HUBZone requirements are changing and what government contractors need to do to adjust their HUBZone compliance strategies as of the end of this year when the new rules take effect. The rule changes are relevant for current HUBZone firms, prospective HUBZone firms, and businesses that partner with HUBZone firms. 
     
    Learning objectives include:

    • How are the current HUBZone eligibility requirements changing?
    • What are the new HUBZone requirements and SBA’s approach to applying them?
    • How should you adjust your compliance strategies under the new rules?

    When employment claims arise, clients often look back at onboarding and find that mistakes made at the outset of employment set the stage for the complaint. Join PilieroMazza’s Labor & Employment Law Group as we discuss the major onboarding errors that lead to employment claims and how to resolve them well before they cause trouble for federal contractors and subcontractors. We will provide insights and strategies to help contractors gain a competitive advantage through discussions of:

    • identifying pre-bid concerns that can cause onboarding conflict;

    • approaching and negotiating with incumbent employees;

    • critical onboarding documentation and considerations; and

    • how to resolve onboarding errors if they occur.
