Event description


Targeting, Teaming and Tactics for GovCon Growth

Planning to double in size in 2018?

Going after more Prime Contracts?

Need to increase the ROI on your B&P?

You’re a second-stage federal contractor: You’ve figured out how to win contracts.

You know it will take even more to grow and win at the next level. You’re determined to get more strategic about finding what to go after, because you’re not going to keep bidding down your rates like everyone else.

You’re differentiating your company in all your branding, your proposals and your contract execution. You’re showing the customer exactly how you add value to their programs. Your customers are all moving to GSA, GWACs and big IDIQs, and you can’t seem to find the decoder ring for the contract types and codes. You know there is lots going on at VA and need more insight on how to access it.

You’re spending so much on Business Development, Capture and B&P, but it seems like it’s never enough! You’re paying lots of money for research tools and you have your pipeline planned out for the next 18 months. Is there more you should be doing? Are there faster ways to find projects that lead you toward the agency requirements you know are out there? Are you always going to be giving up nights, weekends and vacations on proposals?

You’re trying to stay under the size standards for your NAICs codes, so you’re looking at Joint Ventures and the All Small Mentor-Protege program. You’re learning all you can about teaming agreements and workshare. You’re ecstatic about the changes in bid protests, and love hearing about companies getting suspended.

You’re profitable, but cash is always tight. You’d like to pay senior leaders more, but you must maintain your bid rates, and you’re stuck between paying more taxes or eating up the cash flow you’ll need when the next big contract starts. It seems like you’re always having to prove your financial capabilities to your banker, DCAA , DCMA, and prime contractors.

Cost and pricing have gotten more complex, with more backup and explanation required all the time. As a prime, you know you’re supposed to do cost and pricing analysis and even more oversight on your subs, but you’re not sure what that looks like. You’re wondering if a different overhead rate structure would make you more competitive, or if you’re going to lose the re-compete if you can’t get the rates down.

You’re invested in programs for innovation and agility. You’re considering getting CMMI or ISO certification, concerned about Cyber threats, and expecting more growth OCONUS. You just realized you don’t know all your employees personally anymore, and you’re worried they’ll get poached by a competitor. It all costs money and drives up your overhead rates, so it’s about balancing risk and requirements.

You’re tired of flying up to DC and standing in line with everyone else, at endless conferences and meetings. You’re developing relationships with GovCon experts that can help you get connected and stay current with the latest changes. It matters to you to meet in person, and stay in touch.

What if you could learn from your peers, create strategies to maximize your valuation, and meet with agencies and potential teammates? What if you could hear from industry leaders about where the growth will come from in the next decade, and how you can participate in it?

Are you a Small Business VIP?

We have a special package for you - 2 tickets, promotion and priority access to Matchmaking and sessions.

Focused exclusively on small business strategies for the federal marketplace, Florida GovCon Summit will broaden your thinking and provide actionable insights. Just as important as discussions with the thought leaders in attendance will be the opportunity to pursue these and other issues with your peers—fellow defense and aerospace contractors from companies with $2 million to $10 million in Revenue.

You're NOT A STARTUP, and you don't want to hear the same old stuff: You've got active subcontracts. You've set up teaming agreements and started Joint Ventures, Mentor-Protege and GSA Schedules. You've got past performance and you're building your pipeline. You've got most of your infrastructure in place. But every time you get past one obstacle, you find out about another one! You're especially worried about being locked out of the market because you can't get on the right contract vehicle! And all this is costing so much time and money. We're determined to help you find the answers you need so you can walk away with an action plan and a broader range of teammates and opportunities.

Don’t miss out – space is limited.
