In today’s competitive government contracting market, small business eligibility gives contractors a huge leg up. As more and more contracts are set aside for small, 8(a), HUBZone, veteran-owned and woman-owned companies, eligibility can be the key to success. Small business eligibility can be leveraged to secure access to contracts that other, non-eligible competitors can’t access. But it also creates additional grounds upon which competitors can protest a contractor’s set-aside contract award. Specifically, competitors can challenge a contractor’s eligibility to receive contract awards through the use of size and status protests.

In this webinar (after a refresher on the eligibility requirements of the various small business programs), you will learn about these size and status protests. We will discuss how these protests are made, the common bases supporting them, and the process that contractors go through – whether asserting or defending – after a protest has been filed.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

  • The differences between bid protests and size and status protests
  • Eligibility criteria for small, 8(a), HUBZone, VOSB/SDVOSB and WOSB/EDWOSB programs
  • The common bases for size and status protests, including affiliation and control/ownership issues
  • The size and status protest from both a protestor and a defending contractor’s point of view

Target Audience: Companies pursuing contracting opportunities with the federal government

Thank you!
