“The FIRST TEAM tremendously improved our proposal process from a 'stovepipe' structure to an open-active exchange of information. Because of this change in our process, key elements in the organization could contribute in a positive, constructive way, rather than the trickle-down approach that was hindering our productivity."
-Jennifer Staton, Business Development
“…FIRST TEAM Solutions provided clear guidance and coaching on my contracts and subcontracts – incredibly helpful navigating the FAR and DFAR by providing great and useful insights on what the Government Contracting Officer has to go through before they sign that contract…”
-Byron Hatfield, Program Manager
Joe Hidalgo has done a good thing for the Huntsville/Redstone Arsenal/NASA-MSFC community and Government contractors by forming FIRST TEAM Solutions....Now small and large companies alike can access his superb leadership skills and tap into his breadth and depth of contracting knowledge. Certainly, I look forward to working with FIRST TEAM and Joe!"

As a small business - there are many issues that need to be dealt with in the daily management of the enterprise and while many small businesses opt to 'go it alone' - this is not a wise approach and fraught with risk. Staffs are primarily technically oriented and doing business with the Government can be daunting relative to compliance issues with the FAR, ITAR and EAR.
These issues - contract management, export control, conducting negotiations and developing pricing strategies, to name a few - are 'time robbers' to the technical staff that attempt to mitigate that risk on their own where they could be focusing their effort to the technical product or service to be done. And while an alternative may be to hire the specialists on staff to deal with these issues - a small business may not be able to absorb the cost of those specialists full time - not to mention the negative impact to its competitive posture.
