Company is large by virtue of affiliation with a network of affiliated companies with a common parent. Company has few staff. Those staff market for and manage national accounts for all affiliated companies. Company holds a GSA Schedule to provide services. GSA Schedule indicates that the company will "self-perform" the work, and includes a long list of affiliates that will do the work, calling them "authorized dealers". Company is 10 years into Schedule. KO and Company consider the work to be self-performed when affiliates do it. Company handles all billing and communications with GSA and government purchasers. Company provides work orders to affiliates. Company is working to understand how to communicate and manage compliance by all affiliates listed on the Schedule. I am advising. I am trying to understand how to think about the affiliates/authorized dealers. Do they have all the same compliance obligations as the Company? Are they considered part of the "prime"? Thank you in advance for any insight. And please let me know what else you need to analyze this issue. Thanks!
