Report If You Plan to Use the SBA’s Template Joint Venture Agreement, Read This First in SmallGovCon.com A blog by Koprince Law LLC in General Posted April 27, 2021 Great post! Thank you to Koprince Law and Wifcon for publishing this piece--I am going to share it with our clients (several of which are 8(a) small businesses). To add to this post, I would note that in addition to the provisions discussed above, JV's and other contractors (specifically small businesses working with the DoD, NASA, and DoE), may also be required to have an adequate cost accounting system (a DCAA compliant accounting system). In these cases, if your business does not already have experience with the FAR and DCAA, it is a good idea to learn what is going to be expected of your accounting and timekeeping systems. You may be asked to complete an SF1408, or expected to have a compliant system already in place simply to submit your proposal in the first place! To learn more about the SF1408 (and what each of the 17 criteria mean for your business and accounting system), there is a helpful explanation found here. More information on the components, setup time, and cost of a compliant system is available from accounting and software companies like ReliAscent, Deltek, or Jamis, to name a few.
