Future Battlefield Series: Soldier Performance

VA

Soldiers need physical fitness and mental fortitude to keep them one step ahead of the adversary. The proliferation of wearable technology and the biofeedback and neurofeedback data it generates have created new opportunities to quantify and evaluate tactical athletes’ performance and leverage quantitative data to design the highest performing squads. Now, it’s time for a strategy that leverages human performance expertise from the military, industry, and academia and puts warfighters in control of optimizing their cognitive and physical wellbeing throughout the entire mission lifecycle – from training to mission execution and after action.

Limitations on Subcontracting & The SBA’s Government-Wide Mentor Protégé Program

VA

THE SBA’S GOVERNMENT-WIDE MENTOR-PROTEGE PROGRAM AND NEW LIMITATION ON SUBCONTRACTING RULE: THE NEW RULES AND HOW THEY WILL CHANGE SMALL BUSINESS SET-ASIDE CONTRACTING

In 2016, the SBA implemented the SBA’s small business mentor-protégé program. This program may potentially be one of the most important and far-reaching federal contracting programs for small businesses in recent memory. The new rule establishes for the first time a Government-Wide mentor-protégé program for all small businesses, which is consistent with the program for participants in SBA’s 8(a) program. The course will cover the provisions of the rule, including: program eligibility requirements, negotiating mentor-protégé agreements, the benefits of these agreements, joint venturing between mentors and protégés for small business set-aside opportunities, and compliance with SBA’s requirements. The Program will also explore SBA’s recent significant changes to the rules that limit subcontracting under set-aside contracts.
