Program Description

What’s a “small business participation plan?” Isn’t that the FAR-mandated small business subcontracting plan? NO! These two documents co-exisit in your proposal and serve two different purposes. In this seminar, Diane will explain the difference between the two, the purpose of the small business participation plan from the customer’s view, and the impact on large businesses.

In addition, Diane will review the SBA Mentor-Protege Program and to determine if the program is a good fit for your company (large or small).
