When it comes to small businesses, the federal government is a big proponent of collaboration. The government directs a fair percentage of its procurement to small businesses, but some contracts are just too large for many to handle alone. When this is the case, small businesses can team up with one or more other businesses to collectively perform the contract. Teaming is a great way for small businesses to build credibility and demonstrate proficiency to the government and other contractors.
