In order to be eligible for certain Federal programs and certain Federal contracts and subcontracts, you must be a “small business concern.” SBA’s size regulations, which are set forth at 13 CFR part 121, are used to determine eligibility for all SBA and Federal programs that require a concern to be small.

In the Final Rule issued May 31, 2016 (effective June 30, 2016), the Small Business Administration issued rules implementing the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act which will impact the rules of AFFILIATON. 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.

Emily’s presentation will focus on the:

  • Understanding affiliation
  • Presumption of affiliation
  • The 70% rule
  • Affiliation and joint ventures
  • Implementation
  • Limitations on subcontracting
  • Changes to subcontracting plans
  • Non-manufacturer rule
  • Implementation
