SECAF Webinar: Recent Legislative and Regulatory Developments Affecting Small Businesses
Webinar Event: Thursday, January 31, 2019
Several legislative and regulatory developments occurred last Fall which affect all small businesses and particularly SDVOSBs and HUBZone companies. Sponsored jointly by Unanet and the Small and Emerging Contractors Advisory Forum (SECAF), the webinar will be presented by Protorae Law’s Government Contracts partner, Devon Hewitt, Chair of SECAF’s Legislative and Regulatory Committee. Ms. Hewitt will summarize these developments and their impact on your business, including:
- The Small Business Runway Extension Act
- Consolidation of VA’s SDVOSB eligibility rules with SBA’s SDVOSB eligibility rules
- SBA’s proposed revamping of the HUBZone program
- Proposed Rule amending FAR provisions on Limitations on Subcontracting
This webinar will also be the launch of SECAF’s new GovCon institute. The institute will offer SECAF members the opportunity to learn and discuss topics directly relevant to starting, managing, and growing a small business. Topics will include creating a robust capture process; engagement and use of outside professionals such as accountants, lawyers, and others; securing a Facility Clearance; understanding pricing and the development of loaded labor rates; best practices for recruiting; and options for marketing your company effectively and efficiently. SECAF also welcomes your suggestions on topics that you think are necessary building blocks for a small business competing in the federal market. Each topic will be discussed in a webinar, to be hosted by an expert in that respective area.
