Limitations on Subcontracting & The SBA’s Government-Wide Mentor Protégé Program
Thursday, November 19, 2020 @ 9:30am - 11:00am
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.
