In its comments on this amendment, the SBA confirmed that it is still of the opinion that a two-year rule is necessary, given that a joint venture is intended for a limited purpose and a limited duration, but the SBA has removed the three-market limit. However, as with the old rule, it continues to apply to `a particular joint venture`. Therefore, if a mentor or protégé has „a particular joint venture“ whose time has elapsed, they can simply create a new „specific joint venture“, and the rule applies again to that separate entity. Originally, SBA launched a sheltered mentorship program for 8 (a) small businesses in 1998. The main objective of this program was to encourage experienced SBA-approved companies (tutors) to assist in the development of 8 (a) small (protective) enterprises approved by the SBA. One of the main advantages of the mentor`s 8a relationship was that the mentor and the protégé, as a small business, could create a joint venture for each main contract or subcontract of the state, provided that the protégé was poorly qualified to procure and that the protégé did not reach the dollar limits that an 8a participant could obtain for the purposes of the 8a) single source requirements. The SBA rules also confirmed that the parties are not bound by an approved 8(a) mentor-protégé agreement, in accordance with the SBA membership rules, based exclusively on the assistance received by a protégé from a mentor under the mentor`s protection agreement. Prior to October 1, 2016, the SBA`s Protected Mentorship Program was only available to 8 (a) small businesses. In particular, the removal of the 8(a) mentoring protection program will also change the SBA`s required prior authorization for joint venture agreements between an 8(a) protégé and his or her mentor for competitive 8a rewards.

Under the mentoring protection rules of 8(a) that pre-existed before November 16, 2020, mentors and protégés had to obtain, on behalf of the joint venture, approval from the SBA for their joint venture agreements prior to the award of an 8a contract. See 13 C.F.R. § 124.513 (e) (before 16 November 2020). With effect from 16 November 2020, it is no longer necessary to conclude joint venture agreements for competitive markets 8(a). See 85 Fed. Reg. 66191 (amended to 13 C.F.R. § 124.513 (e)). However, the SBA will continue to require prior approval of the Joint Undertaking Agreement prior to the award of a contract for source 8(a) only. Id. (iv) all federal contracts awarded to the mentor/protector relationship as a joint venture (each referred to as 8 (a), small business or unlimited acquisition), the value of each contract and the percentage of the contract performed and the percentage of revenue generated by each part of the joint venture; And many protees see business development as the main obstacle to success.

According to the regulatory definition, mentors have found a way to meet this challenge. Whether entering a new region, entering a new market, or becoming familiar with government contracts, mentors have valuable knowledge that they can pass on to protégés. As with any other area of support, the extent of business development training should be tailored to the needs of the protégé. 8. The SBA may terminate the tutoring-protected contract at any time if it finds that the protected party does not benefit from the relationship in a reasonable manner or that the parties do not comply with a provision or condition of the mentor-protected agreement. In the event that the SBA terminates the relationship, the mentor-protégé joint venture is obliged to conclude contracts already concluded, unless the procuring entity enters into a contract of stoppage of work. . . .
