The North Carolina Community College System Small Business Center Network and the North Carolina Military Business Center are pleased to host a three-part Defense Contractor Academy – For Small Businesses Engaged in Contracting from September 28-30, 2022.
The Defense Contractor Academy (DCA) offers intermediate-level instruction to existing small business defense contractors to provide the tools needed to grow the federal portion of their business portfolio.
Part 1: September 28, 0900-1645. Part 1, constructed as a business development focused day, will take a deeper dive into federal contract opportunities and discuss how a business should respond to different notice types; review non-traditional opportunity types including non-competitive and limited-competition acquisitions (OTAs, Ability One, GSA, IDIQ, MATOC, MACC, etc.); demonstrate data sources available to better know your respective industry and competition; and explore available resources (FPDS, SAM.gov, MatchForce.org) to identify buyers, competitors, and contract opportunities.
Part 2: September 29, 0900-1700. Part 2 is constructed as a cybersecurity and financial focused day. We will start the morning with an overview on the importance of cybersecurity requirements for federal contractors to help defend our nation’s security. Next, presenters will focus on financial-related topics including cost estimating, developing pricing proposals, financing government contracts, cost accounting standards, and contract audits.
Part 3: September 30, 0900-1530. Part 3, constructed as a legal focused day, will cover several topics ranging from teaming; joint ventures; mentor-protégé programs and limitations on subcontracting; human resource considerations and labor laws related to federal contracts; debriefings; protests; and contract administration issues.
