TITLE VIII--ACQUISITION POLICY, ACQUISITION MANAGEMENT, AND RELATED MATTERS

Subtitle FOther Matters

P. L. 112-81

House Conference Report 112-329

SEC. 867. FIVE-YEAR EXTENSION OF DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE MENTOR-PROTEGE PROGRAM.

    Section 831(j) of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 1991 (10 U.S.C. 2302 note) is amended--

      (1) in paragraph (1), by striking `September 30, 2010' and inserting `September 30, 2015'; and

      (2) in paragraph (2), by striking `September 30, 2013' and inserting `September 30, 2018'.

Five-year extension of Department of Defense mentor-protege program (sec. 867)

The Senate amendment contained a provision (sec. 887) that would extend the Department of Defense mentor-protege program through September 30, 2018.

The House bill contained no similar provision.

The House recedes.

The conferees are aware that the Department of Defense (DOD) mentor-protege program is the oldest of the federal mentor protege programs, and the only one to provide appropriated funds for cost reimbursement for mentors that support small businesses. The conferees believe that this has been a valuable program to both the Department, as well as to small businesses and encourage the DOD mentor-protege program to look at opportunities to align with the Small Business Administration (SBA) mentor-protege program. Further, the conferees encourage the Department to add into future DOD mentor-protege annual reports descriptions of efforts being made to align with the program standards of the SBA mentor-protege program, identification of opportunities for synergy, and analysis of technical, legal or regulatory impediments to closer alignment with the program standards of the SBA mentor-protege program.

Senate Report 112-26

Five-year extension of Department of Defense mentor-protege program (sec. 887)

The committee recommends a provision that would extend for 5 years the mentor-protege program authorized by section 831 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 1991 (Public Law 101-510).
