Abstract
Public Law 101-510 established the pilot Mentor-Protege Program. This is a voluntary program designed incentives for major Department of Defense contractors to furnish disadvantaged small business concerns with assistance designed to enhance their capabilities to perform as subcontractors and suppliers under both Government and commercial contracts. This study was undertaken to assess the environment for program implementation by analyzing the perceptions of one large DoD contractor and the small disadvantaged business community regarding the Mentor-Protege program and DoD's implementing guidance. The results of this study indicate: There is generally a positive impression of this program and the assistance offered by this program would be effective in improving the capabilities of small disadvantaged businesses. There are, however, several barriers present that could prevent program implementation or limit its effectiveness.
