Missile Defense Agency has selected Northrop Grumman for US Department of Defense(DOD) Mentor-Protégé agreement Program.

The DOD mentor-protege program encourages prime contractors to help small businesses increase their participation in federal subcontracts and establish long-term relationships with prime contractors.

Under the 36-month agreement, Northrop Grumman will assist QTEC, Inc., a small, woman-owned business to enhance QTEC's engineering and technology capabilities, business infrastructure and business development, the company announced Saturday.

Key focus areas include information assurance and DOD certifications, cybersecurity operations, emerging security technologies and systems engineering.

"We look forward to a successful mentor-protege relationship and will work together to improve and broaden QTEC's viability and competitiveness," said Dan Verwiel, vice president and general manager, integrated air and missile defense division, Northrop Grumman Information Systems.  

"QTEC is proud to be a partner with Northrop Grumman in the DOD mentor-protege program through the Missile Defense Agency," said Kathryn Broad, chief executive officer of QTEC.  "This agreement aligns with QTEC's long-term strategic goals of expanding the depth and breadth of our technical and management capabilities."

Since the inception of the DOD mentor-protege program, Northrop Grumman representatives have provided guidance to more than 130 small business firms.
