The Defense Logistics Agency Mentor-Protégé Program (DLA MPP) assists eligible Small Businesses (protégés) in developing their qualifications and ability to compete for prime contract and subcontract awards by partnering with DoD contractors (mentors), who are incentivized to provide developmental assistance under individual, project-based agreements to help meet the DLA mission.

DoD Mentor-Protégé Program Policy and Regulations
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.

The Mentor-Protégé Program was established as a pilot program under Section 831 of Public Law 101-510, the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 1991 (10 U.S.C.2302 note). The NDAA for Fiscal Year 2023 (FY2023) codified the DoD Mentor-Protégé Program into law. The program was created by former Senator Sam Nunn and implemented by former Defense Secretary William Perry.
