An Architectural and Engineering
Mentor - Protégé Program

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) District 11 and the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) are pleased to introduce you to the Calmentor mentor-protégé program. This program is designed to encourage and support small businesses through voluntary partnerships with mid-size and larger firms. Specifically, the program aims to increase the participation of small Architectural and Engineering (A&E) firms in public transportation projects in the San Diego region.

In order to ensure success, Caltrans and SANDAG have partnered with the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) – San Diego Chapter, and the Caltrans, District 11 Small Business Council (D-11 SBC). A Steering Committee consisting of representatives from Caltrans, ACEC and the District 11 SBC, have worked together to develop the program materials.
