Course Description

In the increasingly competitive marketplace of Government Contracts, teaming agreements, and strategic alliances can offer companies an edge and enhance the value delivered to the Government. But teaming agreements and strategic alliances entail risk as well as reward.

Discover the broad variety of strategic alliances available to companies that might otherwise be competitors; the rules, regulations, and case law that should guide the selection and structure of those alliances; and practices to protect your company from unscrupulous suitors and investigators devoted to rooting out anti-competitive abuses.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand the broad variety of strategic alliances possible to pursue and execute Government Contracts, including within small business programs
  2. Learn about trends in the enforceability of strategic alliances, and how to protect your employees and intellectual property even if a team falls apart
  3. Consider how to leverage teams in the era of DOJ’s Procurement Collusion Fraud Strike Force
