DoD Mentor-Protégé Program Policy and Regulations

Program Design

Mentors and Protégés are solely responsible for finding their counterpart. The DLA Office of Small Business Programs (OSBP) does not team Mentors and Protégés.  Although the DLA OSBP does periodically host match making sessions in which Mentors and Protégés are allowed to participate, the DLA OSBP does not team Mentors and Protégés. Interested firms are encouraged to explore existing business relationships in an effort to establish a Mentor-Protégé relationship. Mentors may have multiple Protégés, however Protégés may only have one Mentor. Only Mentors may submit packages for the program. The contract with the government is solely with the Mentor.
