Title: New and Important Federal Laws that Affect Small Businesses (Cancelled)
McDonald Hopkins, 300 N. LaSalle St. Suite 2100, Chicago, IL
Don’t miss out on government contracting opportunities, due to unawareness. Laws are ever-changing and it is important to know how these changes will affect the way you do business. The National Defense Authorization Act of 2014 (NDAA) includes some major changes in the rules for federal contracting with small businesses. Many businesses still don’t know that the last year’s changes to the NDAA has brought about an expansion of the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Mentor-Protégé Program and the removal of the contract award cap for Women-Owned Small Businesses; and this year’s changes add new incentives for prime contractors to work with small businesses. This event will cover several topics such as:
- The National Defense Authorization Act of 2014
- Local laws that will affect small businesses
- Importance of responding during a public comment period
- Next steps for small business owners
Since these new laws can affect current and aspiring contract holders, this is a must-attend event for anyone interested in doing business with the federal government!
