The Federal Marketing Alliance (FMA) works with small and medium sized companies in the government space to grow their businesses through mergers and acquisitions. Our specialty is in identifying the right targets, conducting due diligence and working with the client and their legal staff to secure the transaction. Yet, mergers or acquisitions in this space can be difficult. There are laws in place (Anti-Assignment Act) that prohibit the transfer of government contracts to a third party. But, the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) allow, in certain instances, the ability to conduct that transaction via a Novation Agreement through the General Services Administration (GSA). Additionally, stock purchases, meeting specific requirements, can avoid that process completely. Additionally, the FMA can assist you if your selling your government oriented small business. We understand the value of contract vehicles, past performance and of course existing contracts.
