NGA seeks Mentor-Protégé Program participants
On January 5, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) posted a notice seeking Mentor firms for its Mentor-Protégé Program (MPP). Responses are due by 5:00 p.m. Eastern on February 5.
NGA’s MPP is seeking eligible Mentor firms for participation in the Department of Defense (DoD) MPP, in accordance with Department of Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) subpart 219.71 and DFARS Appendix I. Formal proposals are not being accepted at this time. However, Mentor firms whose Mentor White Papers are consistent with the intent of the NGA MPP may be invited to participate in Phase II to submit a final proposal subject to availability of funds.
The purpose of the DoD MPP is to provide incentives to major DoD contractors to assist Protégé firms and increase the Protégé’s overall participation as prime contractors and/or subcontractors. This is accomplished through technical and developmental assistance from the Mentor to the Protégé. Approved Mentor firms will enter into Mentor-Protégé Agreements with an eligible Protégé. A complete description of the DoD program and eligibility requirements is provided in Appendix I of the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS).
The goal MPP is to engage industries to shape and expand the small business industrial base and in particular, the geospatial intelligence (GEOINT) base, to support DoD missions. We are seeking mentor-protégé agreements that will assist protégés in enhancing their GEOINT capabilities to provide value-added support to the defense industrial base and contribute to its growth in terms of capacity and capability.
