The Pilot Mentor-Protege Program was implemented with the passage of P.L. 101-510 in November, 1990. The purpose of the program is to provide incentives to DoD prime contractors to assist in the development of Small and Disadvantaged Business Concerns (SDBs) and foster the development of long term business relationships. Recent evaluation of the program has been both narrow and superficial. This case study was undertaken to identify the benefits of the program and elaborate current measures to address an expanded definition of benefits. The results of this study indicate that there are many benefits of the Mentor-Protege Program that should be considered during program evaluation. Current evaluation criteria may be modified to address additional program results. There are also essential interaction process that may indicate a successful mentor-protege relationship. Process measures may give managers the ability to identify strengths and potential weaknesses, providing a blueprint for building an effective mentor-protege relationship.
