    Webinar Contents:

    Insights, best practices and lessons learned on how to strategically position yourself to be a successful partner and subcontractor to US Companies operating across the Middle East, Europe and Africa in support of US Federal programs.  This webinar will discuss how companies can best support Prime Contractors’ proposal efforts as a team Subcontractor, and provide the input required to lead to a successful proposal outcome and award. Also, discussions will include what Subcontractor qualities lead to repeat calls from Prime Contractors, and how to forge that lasting relationship for continued growth and success. Finally, transitioning from a Subcontractor to a Prime Contractor, and how to strategically pursue work as a Subcontractor, to be best positioned to compete as a Prime in the future.
