Mentor-Protégé Program

Providing beneficial developmental assistance to small businesses

The Mentor-Protégé Program is designed to improve the performance of contracts and subcontracts, foster the establishment of long-term business relationships between large prime contractors and small business subcontractors, and increase subcontracting opportunities and accomplishments. Ultimately, the MPP goal is to assist small businesses to expand the overall base of their marketplace participation and to produce more jobs and increase national income. 


General Dynamics demonstrates our commitment to improving and strengthening small business performance by participating in a variety of federal Mentor-Protégé programs, including with the Departments of Defense and Homeland Security, NASA and others.


Various U.S. government agencies have their own unique MPPs. To learn more about the individual agency programs, please consult with the appropriate Government Small Business Office for detailed information on specific programs and their requirements.


If you qualify to participate in a specific agencies MPP, and have an interest in participating in the MPP with a GD business unit, please contact the appropriate Supplier Liaison.
