The changes to Form 2459 contain questions about other tutoring and information agreements that could lead to an audit of the membership between the guardian and the protégé. Be sure to carefully consider these new issues in the ASMPP model before submitting your application. These questions suggest that the ASMPP will conduct a little more investigations into the relationship between the proposed mentor and the protégé prior to the authorization of a match. F. Mentor and Protected do not have an agreement in principle to merge or sell shares to each other. Be sure to check the new model when working on a protected mentor contract. l. The Protected () does not have a franchise agreement or license with the mentor. The questions essentially reflect the assumptions of membership in 13 C.F.R.
121.103, although some are specific to a mentor-protected relationship. For example, the question of whether a protégé has “mentor assets, including, but not limited to facilities or equipment” does not have an analogy in the sBa affiliation rules – which you appear to be specific to asMPP. With little fanfare, the SBA updated the agreement model under the All Small Mentor Protected Program (ASMPP). The new model adds a number of questions in the check-box style, mainly about a possible membership between the mentor and the protégé. k. In the last three years, the Protégé has not deducted 70% or more of his income from the mentor. I. An owner or manager of the protégé and owner or manager of the mentor company do not have () several investments in common. If you answer in the affirmative to any of these questions, it is likely that the ASMPP office will ask for more information, so it is probably wise to anticipate by sending a statement as part of the first application.
N. Mentor () does not have a good character and a favourable financial situation. H. An officer, director, executive member, associate, principal shareholder or collaborator of the Protected has no position of mentor () and does not previously hold a position of mentor, director, executive director, partner, principal shareholder or collaborator of the protégé. The SBA described the changes to the form in a federal registry: m. The Mentor and the Protected have not set up a joint venture that has received several tender contracts more than two years apart or has received more than three contracts.
