SBA Mentor-Protégé Program

The Mentor-Protégé program is offered under the 8(a) Business Development Program. The program is intended to enhance an 8(a) company’s ability to successfully compete in Federal government procurements.

C&T Joint Venture

The C&T Joint Venture was formed by Tantus and Cyber Security Solutions, LLC. (CSS), under the U.S. Small Business Administration’s (SBA) Mentor-Protégé Program, to provide the Federal government with high-quality, Information Technology support services. The Mentor firm (OnPoint) and the Protégé firm (Tantus) entered into a written agreement outlining the services provided by Tantus. SBA reviewed and approved the agreement and monitors the success of the relationship.  Advantages include:

  • Less risk to the government as C&T Joint Venture provides agency knowledge and work experience combined with financial stability, staffing, and technical expertise.
  • 100% 8(a) and/or Small Business credit to the government.
  • More effective delivery of services to government as a result of Tantus receiving organizational maturity assistance in the form of technical and financial management, operations and infrastructure support, expanded corporate capabilities, and business and proposal development.
  • Growth opportunities for both Tantus and CSS that may not exist outside of this program.
