C & Joel --- Thanks for the replies. Yes, FAR 52.219-14 is still under revision but in final stages. I have read the Federal Register comments (7-25-16) implementing the 13 CFR 121-127 rule changes. Very interesting, but does not provide clarity on how to how to calculate the 40% protege requirement. Major equipment provided by the Mentor could significantly impact the feasibility of the MPJV opportunity depending upon the calculation of the 125.8(c) "40% of the work performed" requirement.
I will move forward with the SBA. Any advice as to which organization w/in the SBA to contact?
