By: Paul Chaney
The Small Business Administration (SBA) last year issued proposed rules that could significantly alter the contracting experience for all small businesses in 2016 and beyond.
Specifically, the changes, made in the Small Business Government Contracting and National Defense Authorization Act of 2013 Amendments, will affect the “Mentor-Protege” program for government contractors.
Small Business Trends spoke by phone with Edward DeLisle, an attorney in Philadelphia, Pa., and a member of the Section of Public Contract Law of the American Bar Association, which helped draft a comment on the bill, to get the details on what these changes mean for small businesses moving forward.
