One of the core competencies of SFSI as a holding company is to assist in the development of teaming and other arrangements with partner companies. The SFSI management team is critical to the construction of SBA-approved Mentor-Protégé Arrangements, Joint Ventures and S9.6 Teaming Agreements.

Mentor-Protégé Agreements

By SBA regulations, SFSI subsidiaries are permitted two Mentor-Protégé relationships during their life as an 8(a) company. Mentor-Protégé Agreements (MPA’s) are the only way an 8(a) company can joint venture with a large company. Currently, SFS Global has an MPA with Tiburon Associates, Inc. that holds two very large IDIQ contracts (TACOM ERS3) and Navy GBS.

The SBA recently approved SIRCOMed’s MPA with a large staffing company out of San Antonio, TX.
