Join us for the first quarterly webinar of 2023 with the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Honolulu District and Hawaii PTAC.
In this webinar, the USACE Honolulu District will provide industry-specific information on active USACE projects in the Honolulu Districts Area of Responsibility and updated forecasts for their projected projects, emphasizing opportunities for the small business community within Hawaii.
Following that, the USACE Honolulu District and Hawaii PTAC will present on some contracting tips. This quarter the USACE will discuss the following updates. Effective 19 December 2022, 1) the SBA released new size standards for the 2022 NAICS, 2) contracting officers shall utilize $850,000 in lieu of $750,000 for the net worth threshold in the small disadvantaged business concern definition at Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 2.101(b), 3) FAR 19.805-2 to clarify 8(a) participants’ eligibility criteria for two-step design-build competitive procurements (see 13 CFR 124.507(d)(3)). This will then be followed by Q&A as time allows.
