Let's face it. If you're involved in pursuing government
contracts as a professional or executive, you are subject to a non-stop and
fast-growing onslaught of information and activities designed to help you with
your daily routine.
This deluge has created
significant confusion in the government sector as to what it is folks
should be doing in order to move the proverbial ball forward. There are
breakfast, lunch and dinner networking events, industry days, RFI's and
Sources Sought Notices, compliance issues, amendments to solicitations,
regulatory updates that change how you pursue business, policy updates
that change how you win business, agency directives that change how you
find business and more!
Someone that tells you "the more signed
teaming agreements you collect in a week is a measure of success" is not
really helping you.
So you're on four different teams for four
different GWAC's and five other teams for five BPA's and IDIQ contracts.
What processes do you have in place to exploit and support those
activities and do you really understand how your primes intend to
disseminate work? Where are you in that
the changes facing the 2011 budget meaning the government will have to
do more with less, and the prospect of a very long continuing
resolutions meaning new projects are on-hold, your ability to stay sharp
and efficient as an industry professional or executive/owner is more
important than ever.
Never has there been a better time than now for an education and intelligence activity that hits the mark!
behalf of our Planning Committee, volunteers, scheduled presenters and
of course, Maggie and myself, we invite you to join us November 3rd at
the Doubletree Hotel in Crystal City as we collectively present the 2010 B2G Essentials Conference
This full-day of highly useful and immediately applicable information
will serve to support industry novices and veterans alike. If you are
seeking information on Teaming and Subcontracting Tactics
or how a GSA Schedule
might impact your business in 2011 and beyond, or how rules issued by the Department of Labor's Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP)
regarding predecessor employees
or disabled persons may change your approach to providing full-time equivalent employees to the Government.
Other sessions covering topics such as how to pursue Simplified Acquisition Procurements
(also known as small purchases), the recent changes to the Subcontracting Threshold
(the first rung of this ladder moved up! - not really good for small business) and the increase to the Simplified Acquisition Threshold
a good thing!) are all pieces of the puzzle you must assemble in order to be effective as you pursue your business goals.Early bird pricing for the conference ends this Thursday (9/30) so be sure to take advantage of the $50 savings and pre-register today!
You'll be hard-pressed to find a better use of your time or a better
value for your hard-earned dollars, and we promise you will leave with
more usable information than you came with!
