Hopewell Darneille, of the Firm’s Washington, DC office, will be a presenter at the eighth annual Dynamic Networking for Small Business (DYNET) Conference, a federal and prime contracting event in Fairmont, West Virginia, on April 13, 2017 at the Robert H. Mollohan Research Center.
Mr. Darneille will co-present a workshop on “SBA’s NEW Joint Venture Rules,” with Melissa Loder, the principal Business Opportunity Specialist in the U.S. Small Business Administration’s (SBA) West Virginia District Office.
This workshop will provide a fast-moving discussion of SBA’s new joint venture rules, and the related new limitations on subcontracting (LOS) and universal mentor-protégé (M/P) program rules. The workshop will discuss considerations, options, strategies and traps in structuring joint ventures, including mentor-protégé joint ventures, under the new rules. The workshop also will discuss real-world problems addressed in recent SBA Office of Hearings and Appeals (OHA), Government Accountability Office (GAO) and Court cases, and how companies can resolve and avoid such issues
The DYNET Program is sponsored by the Northern West Virginia Chapter of the National Contract Management Association (NCMA) and other Federal Partners. In addition to the SBA, participating organizations include the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Pittsburgh District, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Regional Contracting Assistance Agency (RCAC). Registration for the conference is free. To register, visit www.dynetworking.com.
