Please cite GSAR Case 2006–G501. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A. Background This proposed rule amends the General Services Administration Acquisition Regulation (GSAR) by adding a new Subpart, 519.70, GSA ´ ´ Mentor-Protege Program, which outlines ´ ´ the Agency’s Mentor-Protege Program. Associated contract clauses are added ´ ´ at 552.219–75, GSA Mentor-Protege Program, and 552.219–76, Mentor Requirements and Evaluation. GSA strongly supports increasing opportunities for small business concerns, recognizing the continuing need to develop the capabilities of small business, small disadvantaged business, HUBZone small businesses, veteranowned small businesses, servicedisabled veteran-owned small businesses and women-owned small businesses to perform contracts and subcontracts for GSA. This is not a significant regulatory action and, therefore, was not subject to review under Section 6(b) of Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, dated September 30, 1993. This rule is not a major rule under 5 U.S.C. 804. B. Regulatory Flexibility Act The changes may have a significant economic impact on a substantial PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 32669 number of small entities within the meaning of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq., because the rule will provide an opportunity for small business concerns to become ´ ´ proteges and receive developmental assistance from GSA prime contractors under GSA contracts. The GSA Mentor´ ´ Protege Program is intended to provide subcontracting opportunities for ´ ´ proteges to gain valuable experience and knowledge about Federal Government contracting. An Initial Regulatory Flexibility Analysis (IRFA) has been prepared. The analysis is summarized as follows: This proposed rule establishes a GSA ´ ´ Mentor-Protege Program to encourage GSA prime contractors to assist small businesses, small disadvantaged businesses, womenowned small businesses, veteran-owned small businesses, service-disabled veteranowned small businesses, and HUBZone small businesses in enhancing their capabilities to perform GSA contracts and subcontracts, foster the establishment of long-term business relationships between these small business entities and GSA prime contractors, and increase the overall number of small business entities that receive GSA contract and subcontract awards. In accordance with the Small Business Act, it is the policy of the Government to provide maximum practicable opportunities in its acquisitions to these small business concerns and allow them to have the maximum practicable opportunity to participate as subcontractors in the contracts awarded by any executive agency, consistent with efficient contract performance. The General ´ ´ Services Administration Mentor-Protege Program is designed to assist in this policy by encouraging GSA prime contractors to assist small businesses in enhancing their capabilities to perform contracts and subcontracts. The entities to which this rulemaking ´ ´ would apply are small business proteges. It is estimated that there will be approximately 150 small business concerns impacted by this ´ ´ rule. The proteges (small businesses) will be completing the Agreement with the mentor. ´ ´ In addition, the proteges may complete voluntary reports pertaining to the GSA ´ ´ Mentor-Protege Program. The Regulatory Secretariat will be submitting a copy of the IRFA to the Chief Counsel for Advocacy of the Small Business Administration. A copy of the IRFA may be obtained from the Regulatory Secretariat. GSA will consider comments from small entities concerning the affected GSAR parts 519 and 552 in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 610. Comments must be submitted separately and should cite 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq. (GSAR Case 2006–G501), in all correspondence. C. Paperwork Reduction Act The Paperwork Reduction Act (Pub. L. 104–13) applies because the proposed rule contains information collection E:\FR\FM\10JNP1.SGM 10JNP1
