These proposed rules include: an exception to not be considered affiliates on the basis of the approved mentor-protege joint venture; restricting whether a joint venture may be populated or not; joint ventures being required to submit an annual report to ensure compliance with the SBA regulations and joint venture agreements; the SBA wanting to track awards to joint ventures.
