By Government Contracts Editorial Staff
The Department of Defense has issued a final rule (DFARS Case 2017-D016) amending the Defense Acquisition Regulation Supplement to implement section 1823 and paragraph (b) of section 1813 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017 (PL 114-328), which modified the DoD Pilot Mentor-Protégé Program. Section 1823 revised the definition and requirements associated with affiliation between mentor firms and their protégé firms. Both sections added new types of assistance for mentor firms to provide to their protégé firms. Accordingly, the rule amends DFARS 219.7100 to reflect the date of the most recent NDAA amendment, as well as DFARS Appendix I, which sets forth DoD’s policies and procedures for the program. The rule makes only a minor editorial change to the proposed rule (¶70,020.405). For the text of the rule, which has an October 31, 2018, effective date, see ¶70,016.957.
