Am I Really A Federal Contractor?
Major Healthcare Systems
Arbor was hired by two different large healthcare organizations to determine if either was a federal contractor and if not, what were the pros and cons to the organization of becoming one.
Working with outside counsel, Arbor investigated whether existing federal contracts/subcontracts had been entered into; interviewed staff and leadership; and reviewed HR processes and procedures. In addition, Arbor assessed the culture of the organizations to determine what changes, if any, would be necessary if the organizations were to become federal contractors. The changes were mapped out for management to absorb and study.
Neither organization was determined to be an existing federal contractor. Moving forward, with the help of Arbor's assessment of the potential impacts on operations and culture, neither decided to pursue federal contracts.
