For many procurements, the formation of a teaming relationship by two or more contractors is the only feasible means by which the U.S. Federal Government can obtain the required supplies or services. Similarly, in many instances, forming a teaming arrangement is the only way some contractors can compete for a procurement. This is particular true for small businesses.
