Technical Design Inc. and Kellogg Brown & Root Services have reached an agreement to partner in the Department of Defense Mentor Protégé Program.
The DoD Mentor-Protégé (MP) Program was enacted in 1990 (Public Law 101-510) under the direction of former Senator Sam Nunn and Secretary of Defense William Perry. This program was established to provide incentives for (major) DoD prime contractors (Mentors) to help small disadvantaged businesses (SDBs) qualified organizations that employ the severely disabled, and Women Owned Small Business (Protégés) develop technical and business capabilities. The goal of the program is to assist protégés to successfully compete for prime contract and subcontract awards. Successful Mentor-Protégé agreements provide a winning relationship for the protégé, the mentor and the DoD. Current participants include companies specializing in environmental remediation, engineering services and information technology, manufacturing, telecommunications, and health care.
