Touted as a “game-changer” when it was first introduced in 2016, the U.S. Small Business Administration’s All Small Mentor-Protégé Program isn’t new anymore. Known now as simply the “SBA Mentor-Protégé Program,” it is still extremely powerful for large and small contractors alike.
In this course, government contracts attorneys Shane McCall and Stephanie Ellis of Koprince McCall Pottroff LLC explain the ins and outs of the Mentor-Protégé Program, covering the program’s eligibility requirements, its potent benefits (including the ability to form special mentor-protege joint ventures), the application process, and common misconceptions and pitfalls.
Shane McCall is an Equity Partner at Koprince McCall Pottroff LLC and Editor of the SmallGovCon federal contracting legal blog. He recently published GovCon Handbook Volume 5: Procedures and Pitfalls of Size Protests and Appeals. He assists small businesses in FAR and SBA compliance issues, transactional issues such as joint ventures and teaming agreements, and regularly litigates GAO bid protests, size and status protests (including under the SDVOSB program), and claims. Shane’s writing on small business government contracting matters can regularly be found at SmallGovCon, and his work has appeared in Contract Management magazine. He speaks on government contracting issues to audiences around the country. You can contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
