DOD 5 Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization OSADBU is responsible for the mentor-protege program. A signed mentor-protege agreement for each mentor-protege relationship must be submitted to OSADBU and approved before developmental assistance costs may be incurred. OSADBU has reimbursed mentors through cooperative agreements where both the government and a contractor work together to achieve a common purpose. OSADBU also approved credit agreements that were negotiated on a nonreimbursable basis.2 In addition, the services and the defense agencies requested OSADBUs approval of mentor-protege agreements that reimbursed mentors pursuant to separate contracts or line items in DOD contracts. OSADBU is to conduct periodic performance reviews of the progress and accomplishments realized under approved mentor-protege agreements.
