There is often confusion around FAR 9.601 (Contractor Team Arrangement) on what is allowed, not allowed, and even encouraged from a teaming perspective. Usually, teaming is discussed from the perspective of industry, yet it is the government that takes on the risk when teams are formed to support a program. With the updated SBA regulations (November 2020) around joint ventures and the All-Small Mentor Protégé program, industry has even more options and flexibility at their disposal.  With the wide array of teaming options currently available for companies, how does that impact the government? What if you want to limit your risk by not having to allow or evaluate every subcontractor or awarding to joint ventures that might introduce risk for your program? 

This previously recorded webinar is intended to give contracting officers practical guidance and suggestions on how to incorporate the right kind of teaming requirements (or limitations) into their solicitations. The presenter will cover practical guidance to encourage teaming, discourage teaming for certain circumstances, emphasize the prime offeror’s experience, and even limit how you might apply the newly updated small business regulations.
