Contractor Team Arrangements
click above to Launch
According the the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) 9.6
Contractor Team Arrangement means an arrangement in which-
(1) Two or more companies form a partnership or joint venture to act as a potential prime contractor; or
(2) A potential prime contractor agrees with one or more other companies to have them act as its subcontractors under a specified Government contract or acquisition program.
It is CEBOT's desire to facilitate a friendly environment where contractor team arrangements (CTAs) can be formed between minority technology companies. CEBOT recognizes, as an intermediary, CTAs allow partners complement each other’s unique capabilities; and offer the Government the best combination of performance, cost, and delivery for the system or product being acquired. Contractor team arrangements may be particularly appropriate in complex research and development acquisitions, but may be used in other appropriate acquisitions, including production. The companies involved normally form a contractor team arrangement before submitting an offer. However, they may enter into an arrangement later in the acquisition process, including after contract award.
