VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:06 Nov 03, 2011 Jkt 226001 In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, Public law 104–13 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq) this notice announces the information collection request on ´ ´ Mentor Protege Pilot Program annual ´ ´ report form, and the Mentor Protege Pilot Program evaluation form. ´ ´ DOT’s Mentor-Protege Pilot Program enhances the capability of disadvantaged and small business owners to compete more successfully for federal procurement opportunities. The program encourages private-sector relationships and expands DOT’s efforts to identify and respond to the developmental needs of small and disadvantaged businesses. The program is administered by the DOT OST Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization (OSDBU). SUMMARY: Purpose In accordance with Public Law 95– 507, an amendment to the Small Business Act and the Small Business Investment Act of 1953, OSDBU is responsible for the implementation and execution of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) activities on behalf of small businesses, in accordance with Section 8, 15 and 31 of the Small Business Act (SBA), as amended. The Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization also administers the provisions of Title 49, of the United States Code, Section 332, the Minority Resource Center (MRC), which includes the design and carry-out programs to encourage, promote, and assist minority entrepreneurs and businesses in getting contracts, subcontracts, and projects related to those business opportunities PO 00000 Frm 00127 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 68521 The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) is implementing a ´ ´ Mentor-Protege Pilot Program that encourages agreements between large and small business prime contractors ´ ´ and eligible small business proteges. Small business concerns include small disadvantaged businesses, 8(a) firms, women owned businesses, HUBZone small businesses, veteranowned-businesses and service disabled veteran-owned small businesses. The program is also designed to improve the performance of DOT contractors and subcontractors, foster the establishment of long-term business relationships between small businesses and prime contractors, and increase the overall number of small businesses that receive DOT contract and subcontract awards. General Policy 1. Eligible business prime contractors (not under a suspension or debarment action and not in the Excluded Parties List System (ELPS) database) approved as mentor firms may enter into ´ ´ agreements with eligible proteges. Mentors provide appropriate developmental assistance to enhance ´ ´ the capabilities of proteges to perform as contractors and/or subcontractors. 2. Eligible small business prime contractors (not under a suspension or debarment action and not in the ELPS database) capable of providing developmental assistance may act as mentors. ´ ´ 3. Proteges may participate in the program in pursuit of a prime contract or as subcontractors under the mentor’s prime contract with the Department of Transportation. ´ ´ 4. Mentors and Proteges are solely responsible for finding their counterpart. Therefore, we strongly encourage firms to explore existing business relationships in an effort to ´ ´ establish a Mentor-Protege relationship. ´ ´ 5. Mentor-Protege agreements should be for up to 24 months. 6. The duration of this pilot program will be for two years. Measurement of Program Success The overall success of the Mentor´ ´ Protege Program will be measured by the extent to which it results in: a. An increase in the quality of the ´ ´ technical capabilities of the protege firms. b. An increase in the number, dollar value and percentage of contracts or ´ ´ subcontracts awarded to proteges since the date of entry into the program. c. An increase in the number and dollar value of contract and subcontract ´ ´ awards to protege firms since the time of their entry into the program. E:\FR\FM\04NON1.SGM 04NON1
