Maria Panichelli Presents Deltek’s Webinar “Size & Status Protests Effecting Federal Set-Aside Contracts – Bases & Procedures”
Join Maria Panichelli on Tuesday, August 25, 2020 as she presents Deltek’s webinar, titled “Size & Status Protests Effecting Federal Set-Aside Contracts – Bases & Procedures.” In this webcast Maria will cover the small business protest process. Attendees will learn how size and status protests differ from bid protests and government-initiated size or eligibility investigations. She will walk you through the most common bases for size and status protests – affiliation and control-related issues – and gain an understanding of the protest process, procedures and the eligibility criteria for each of the small business programs, including recent changes to Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) eligibility.
