The U.S. Small Business Administration will present How Small Businesses Can Gain Competitive Advantage through HUBZone Certification, the first of its two-part webinar series on Dec. 3 at 2 p.m. EST. The second part will be presented on Dec.17 at 2 p.m. EST.
Seeking a competitive advantage in the Federal contracting arena? Consider the HUBZone certification. At least 3% of all Federal contracting dollars must be awarded to HUBZone certified small businesses. In FY2012, $8.1 B were awarded to HUBZone firms which represented just 2.01% of the 3% goal.
The two 45-minute webinars will help small business owners learn:
How to obtain and maintain the HUBZone certification;
How to form joint ventures;
How to survive HUBZone status protests to contracts;
How to compete for HUBZone contracts;
How to maintain good record keeping to ensure compliance in the program;
How affiliated businesses are evaluated, and
How to obtain HUBZone contracting requirements.
The Dec. 3rd webinar will explain how HUBZone areas are designated, how to maintain HUBZone certification after an area loses designation and regulatory requirements.
The Dec. 17 webinar will focus on how HUBZone affiliated businesses are treated, joint ventures and HUBZone contracting requirements. Registration is free, but required: http://ems.intellor.com/?p=204851&do=register&t=71 .
