Jackson Kelly’s Hopewell Darneille will be speaking on June 4, 2015, at the Northwest PA Regional Planning and Development Commission’s Dynamic Networking (DyNet) for Small Business program in Erie, Pennsylvania. His presentation, provided as a follow-on, stand-alone, presentation to an earlier presentation by Melissa Loder, a Business Opportunity Specialist in SBA’s West Virginia District Office, on Teaming, Joint Ventures and Mentor-Protégé Relationships, will discuss recent statutory and regulatory developments on those issues and others, including
- SBA’s ongoing size standards changes,
- SBA’s proposed rule on the changed limitations on subcontracting requirements,
- SBA’s new “Safe Harbor” rule allowing for SBDC/PTAC Advisory Size Opinions
The Workshop also will discuss opportunities provided by recent legislation, including the new authorization of WOSB sole source set-asides, as well as SBA’s proposed rule on a new universal mentor-protégé program and important proposed changes to SBA’s joint venture and affiliation rules.
