The US SBA will discuss recent amendments to the National Defense Authorization Act NDAA 2013 that will impact federal contractors.  These changes may have a significant impact on how you manage your federal sales efforts and contracts.

According to US SBA regulations, affiliation exists when one business controls or has the power to control another or when a third party (or parties) controls or has the power to control both businesses. Control may arise through ownership, management, or other relationships or interactions between the parties.

Topics discussed during this webinar include:

  • Clarification of the presumption of affiliation and the 70% rule.
  • Affiliation in Joint Ventures
  • Impact of affiliation on Business Loan Programs and Surety Bond Guarantee Program

Speaker: Shane Mahaffy, Lead Business Opportunity Specialist, U.S. Small Business Administration
