The competitive landscape for the GovCon IT and Consulting sector is made up of an ever-changing array of Prime contractor and subcontractor partner options, as companies ally themselves with a mix of small and large partners who can help them win and deliver on the important missions of the Federal agencies they serve.   

The winds can change quickly, so from a competitive standpoint it is important to regularly review which large, mid-tier and emerging small businesses are creating alliances, and with whom. One example of a formal declaration of a partnership comes in the form of the popular Small Business Administration (SBA) mentor protégé arrangement, whereby an emerging small business creates a tighter bond with a mentor company, and should be viewed as a likely go-to potential partner option (Prime or sub) for the respective mentor.   

The SBA Mentor Protégé Program is a well utilized program intended to help eligible small businesses (protégés) gain capacity and win government contracts through partnerships with more experienced companies that are willing to fill the mentor role. It will come as no surprise that many highly successful government contractors and mentors came up through the program themselves.   

The spreadsheet below details a small subset of the agreements that were formalized and approved by SBA this far in the month of May. The list we share is focused on Federal IT and Consulting firms. The OrangeSlices team has noted a few of the more interesting companies and pairings mentioned, to include Easy Dynamics, ANALYGENCE, TripleCyber, CITI, Signature Performance, XLA, Bestica, Heitech Services, MPF Federal, ECCO Select, NetCentrics  and many more…

We applaud these mentor companies for stepping up to offer their resources and support to smaller firms who can greatly benefit from the advice and guidance of a firm and these leaders who have walked in their shoes.
