About the event

Over the coming months, NW Texas PTAC will transition to a new name: NW Texas APEX Accelerator. Our mission and assistance will not change. You’ll continue to experience exceptional government contracting assistance, just under a new name. We continue to be here for you with all your government contracting needs.

Business size is an important topic in federal contracting: after all, to be eligible to participate as a small business, your business must first be, well, small. In this course, government contracts attorney Matthew Schoonover will discuss how the SBA calculates business size under both a receipts-based and employee-based size standard. He’ll also discuss affiliation—a crucial topic for small businesses that, if found, can turn your small business large!

After taking this course, you will learn:

  1. How the SBA calculates size under a receipts-based and employee-based NAICS code;
  2. How the NAICS code impacts the size requirements;
  3. The common ways the SBA finds an affiliation between companies; and
  4. How to guard yourself against affiliation.


Matthew is the founder and managing member of Schoonover & Moriarty LLC, a law firm dedicated to serving federal government contractors. Together with his colleagues, Matt counsels clients on all aspects of their work with the federal government—from understanding acquisition regulations and contract provisions; to ensuring compliance with regulations relating to small business and socioeconomic program eligibility; and to developing mentor/protégé agreements, joint venture agreements, and subcontracts. Schoonover & Moriarty also represents contractors in bid protests, size and socioeconomic eligibility protests, and performance disputes. Above all, Matt enjoys working with clients to help them achieve success in the federal marketplace.

Matt is an experienced speaker, having traveled the country (and, more recently, cyberspace) to present on topics critical to small businesses. He is also an experienced writer and has been interviewed for a variety of publications and podcasts relating to small businesses.
