Government Contracting: The Small Business Compliance Toolkit


Created on October 19, 2016




Companies doing business with the Federal government face a different set of challenges when competing in the public sector. There are a seemingly endless (and growing) number of rules and regulations that govern a contractor's relationship with the government. In order to stay ahead of the curve, contractors need to assemble an ethics and compliance toolkit that lays the foundation for an overall culture of compliance.

Maintaining compliance is particularly important for companies that qualify as "small." Small business status can lead to opportunities to perform set-aside contracts not available to other businesses competing in the marketplace. And if your business qualifies for one of the Small Business Administration's socio-economic programs, the contracting opportunities can start to multiply.

This course, presented by Nicholas T. Solosky (a partner in Fox Rothschild's Federal Government Contracts and Procurement Practice Group), addresses the fundamental issues of small business government contracting. The topics covered included how to establish your business's size status, avoid negative affiliation, and maintain compliance. 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand what it means to be a small business in the Federal marketplace, including how to calculate your business's size using average annual receipts
  2. Learn how to take advantage of small business and Small Business Administration socio-economic program set-aside contracting opportunities
  3. Comprehend the rules of affiliation and how certain business relationships can put your small business size status in jeopardy
  4. Identify common small business contracting compliance pitfalls – and how to avoid them
