One of the most fascinating aspects of the Government contracting process is the role that subcontracting and subcontractors play in the overall picture. While on the surface the fact that a company is a subcontractor would seem to relegate it to second-tier status, the truth is that subcontractors can play a major role in helping a prime contractor win the stiff competition that precedes the award of a Federal prime contract, and the subcontractor’s performance may also be critical to the successful performance of the prime contract. On Wednesday, April 26, PCI’s Tim Sullivan will discuss a few of the things that make the subcontracting process so challenging—for both primes and subs. Why do companies subcontract? What’s a teaming agreement? Do all of the prime’s clauses flow down to the sub? How does a sub handle claims for problems that are actually caused by the Government? Join us for this stimulating and important discussion.
