Sometimes, the government gets a vote on who contractors subcontract to. It’s called “consent to subcontract”..

Part 1 was about the process to get consent (as a contractor)

Part 2 is about the process to give consent (as a contracting officer). We explain the government team’s role in granting consent. We detail the elements the contracting officer must consider – and highlight several items that the contracting officer may NOT consent to.

GovCon is a two-way street after all… understanding both sides of Consent to Subcontract ensure we more effectively execute this unique feature of GovCon.
