Go Solo or Team: Part 1 - How to Become a Broker on Federal Contracts

Small businesses can take advantage of federal spending requirements by leveraging their size and socio-economic status. There are situations every day where the government bypasses large manufacturers to buy from small businesses who redistribute products.

This phenomenon is owed in part to the small business programs laid out in Part 19 of the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR). Learn about how you could start a business as a sole proprietor strictly for the purpose of redistributing products to the government at a fair and reasonable price. This is called brokering.

Brokering on federal contracts may be a good deal for small businesses; however, it is no walk in the park. You must be prepared to understand many rules, regulations and trends in government contracting and business. Brokering isn’t a FAR loophole per se, but it is a special situation in government contracting that requires a small expertise so that you maximize the opportunity and avoid being taken advantage of.

In this webinar you will learn what it takes to be a broker on federal contracts.

Webinar Topics

  1. Why is brokering on federal contracts possible
