Mentor-Protégé Program


The DOD Mentor-Protégé program is designed to assist small disadvantaged businesses (SDBs) in enhancing their capabilities to satisfy DOD and other contract and sub contract requirements; and to foster long term business relationships between SDBs and the Mentor.


Under the program, eligible companies enter into mentor-protégé agreements with eligible SDBs as protégé firms to provide appropriate developmental assistance to enhance the capabilities of SDBs to perform as subcontractors and suppliers.


Q.E.D. Systems, Inc. has been proactive identifying and developing SDB firms since 1990. Q.E.D. is now mentoring its fourth SDB firm and has experienced great success in the program.  The first three protégé firms mentored by Q.E.D. have gone on to become very successful on their own.  Our latest effort toward assisting SDBs is our DOD approved Mentor-Protégé Program with Maintenance and Inspection Services (MIS).  Our goal is to develop the technical and business capabilities of enabling them to compete more successfully for DOD prime contracts and subcontract awards, thereby expanding their business opportunities.  We would like to tell you something about MIS.
