Mentor Protégé Program
Public Works Construction
The Mentor Protégé Program, in cooperation with the city of San Diego and the Associated General Contractors, is a community-based effort involving leaders of major prime and subcontractor organizations, financial and bonding institutions, and several public agencies. The program is, in part, sponsored by the San Diego County Water Authority. The Mentor Protégé Program is a deliberate effort to overcome barriers that typically inhibit or restrict the success of emerging construction companies and help these enterprises maximize their economic opportunities. The program is designed to produce a broad base of high quality, competitive and profitable construction companies through incremental improvement.
Selection is conducted through an application/interview process. The San Diego County Water Authority's Small Contractor Outreach and Opportunities Program (SCOOP) is a member of the Advisory Board responsible for selecting the participants.
