Program Description

Government contractors routinely use Teaming Agreements to secure federal business opportunities. The Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) generally recognizes the validity of teaming arrangements, but recent case law has called into question the enforceability of such agreements.

In this seminar attendees will learn about:

  • Identify the regulatory and practical restrictions your teaming agreement must meet;
  • Discuss recent case law and identify some lessons learned;
  • Explore ways that you can craft your Teaming Agreement to accomplish your specific business objectives.
