Hazards to Contractors Entering the US Supply Chain by Subcontract

The unique regulatory landscape of Government Contracting makes it difficult for both new and sophisticated commercial businesses to enter the space.  Many businesses choose to enter or expand their presence in the Federal market through subcontracts; however, there are many potential pitfalls for contractors that are not well versed in the unique requirements that arise when doing business in the US supply chain.  In addition, potential subcontractors should be aware that the Government has created several programs to assist companies looking to enter the Federal market.   Join McCarter & English’s Cara Wulf as she explores how new and experienced businesses can mitigate risks inherent in entering the US supply chain by subcontract.
