    The federal government continues to seek out opportunities to contract with small businesses but Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUBZone) businesses goals remain elusive. In 2017, HUBZone was the only small business goal not achieved so opportunities for HUBZone certified businesses are at an all-time high.

    A debriefing can be an extremely valuable tool for a government contractor. Most importantly, debriefings provide offerors a view into the evaluation process and allow a contractor to gain insight into the strengths and weaknesses of their proposals so they can improve future offers, and learn if there is a basis for a potential bid protest. However, too often debriefings end up as missed opportunities and leave government contractors confused and frustrated by the process. Do not let this happen to you next time. Experienced government contracting attorneys Timothy Furin and Robert Ruggieri of Cohen Seglias will share how to get the most out of your debriefing.

    This informative webinar will go beyond the debriefing basics to help you develop strategies for preparing for and participating in debriefings to ensure you can take full advantage of the important opportunities afforded by debriefings.

    Attendees to the live webinar will be able to participate and ask questions, and in addition to the above, hear real-world examples and the latest relevant legal decisions from experienced attorneys who have counseled and assisted government contractors through hundreds of debriefings and protests. Don’t miss this webinar that is essential for government contractors who regularly respond to government requests for proposals.
