Now in its seventeenth year, the Forum has been a long-standing venue for connecting SBIR/STTR-funded technologies with warfighters, government acquisition and technical personnel, large primes, system integrators, and other potential partners/collaborators.

The Forum's theme this year is DELIVERING INNOVATION, and it will present you the opportunity to network with potential new customers and partners! A brief video sample of last year's event is at navysbir.com/navyfst16a.htm and this year's event promises to be even better!

Registration is now open and complete information is available on the FST web site at navyfst.com.

 

Posting of Navy FY-2017.1 SBIR Selections
In order to keep small businesses informed about the Navy's 17.1 SBIR proposal selection status, the Navy posts a list of SBIR/STTR "Selectees" as they are chosen (see Browse Phase I Selections in the box on the right). A selectee is a company selected for "further consideration", meaning that the proposal is of interest, but the final decision and contract negotiation is not complete. Being listed as a selectee on this web site is NOT a notification of contract award.

The list of selections is an ongoing process that may take several months to complete. You can register on the 17_1selections.html page to receive email notifications of updates to the list.

 

Posting of Navy FY-2017.A STTR Selections
In order to keep small businesses informed about the Navy's 17.A STTR proposal selection status, the Navy posts a list of SBIR/STTR "Selectees" as they are chosen (see Browse Phase I Selections in the box on the right). A selectee is a company selected for "further consideration", meaning that the proposal is of interest, but the final decision and contract negotiation is not complete. Being listed as a selectee on this web site is NOT a notification of contract award.

The list of selections is an ongoing process that may take several months to complete. You can register on the 17_STTR_A-selections.html page to receive email notifications of updates to the list.

Authorities to Transform SBIR Opportunities
Three major authorities have been issued that should transform SBIR/STTR opportunities for entrepreneurs, industry, and the government acquisition community. They are:
  1. Better Buying Power 3.0 (BBP 3.0) – a fundamental DoD acquisition policy statement that creates important new on-ramps for small business in general and SBIR/STTR in particular. Procedures and processes to implement this broad policy statement are forthcoming. More information is on the BBP 3.0 web site at bbp.dau.mil/
  2. DoD Instruction 5000.02 (DoDI 5000.02) – a formal prescription, for the first time, of DoD acquisition goals and tracking/reporting requirements for SBIR/STTR in alignment with BBP 3.0.
  3. Tapping Into Small Business in a Big Way – a memo from Assistant Secretary of the Navy Sean Stackley that provides SBIR/STTR implementation guidance to the DON’s acquisition community, with a focus on increased use of Phase III contracts to improve SBIR/STTR commercialization (i.e., deployment) outcomes and help acquisition management meet cost, schedule and performance goals.

 

Navy Office of Small Business Programs
The Department of the Navy's (DON) Office of Small Business Programs (OSBP) promotes acquisition opportunities where small business can best support the needs and mission of the U.S. Navy.

The OSBP strives to support our Sailors and Marines by providing them with the systems, innovation, products and tools necessary to enable them to accomplish their mission and return home safely.

The Navy OSBP web site will provide you with information and links to find opportunities for small businesses to compete for providing products and services to the Navy and Marine Corps.

The OSBP web site is located at: www.secnav.navy.mil/smallbusiness/pages/index.aspx
