Government Contracting Seminars

M3 has designed our seminar offerings based upon the education, background, and 40 years experience of our lead seminar instructor, Patrick Malyszek, J.D. Each format is structured to establish the best means of conveying the material based upon the interest and involvement level of the seminar attendees with federal procurement.

The "Developmental Seminars" These seminars are for those companies or employees that are in process of developing the knowledge base in order to properly function within the federal procurement field. The courses offered at this stage layout the entire framework of conducting business with the U.S. Government and its prime contractors. These seminars are typically one day seminars held in predetermined locations or at your facility.

The "Procedural Seminars". The prime focus of these seminars is specifically comprehending the key elements of the regulations and expectations of the U.S Government and prime contractors. Patrick Malyszek, J.D. will discuss how to create a set of goals based upon your business charter and how to acheive those goals while staying compliant and successful in your proposal efforts and contract performance efforts after award. We also cover common problems that lead to claims and disputes.

The Cognitive Seminars take into consideration the complex mix of federal regulations and commercial laws that we are obligated to follow and how to set up strategizes to become and stay compliant, make a reasonable profit, and mitigate risks with the U.S. Government, prime and subcontractors, and international transactions.
