News from the Navy FST Conference
The Navy held its 2016 Forum for SBIR/STTR Transition (FST) May 16-18, 2016 at the Gaylord Convention Center in National Harbor, MD.

The FST conference featured many successful SBIR/STTR small businesses who utilized the event to display their SBIR/STTR funded technologies to warfighters, government acquisition and technical personnel, large primes, system integrators, and other potential partners/collaborators.

Here are some video highlights from this exciting event.

New Authorities to Transform SBIR Opportunities
Three new 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.
Implementation of these authorities is the challenge before all of our SBIR community. We welcome your comments on how to take advantage of these new opportunities to improve the value proposition of the SBIR/STTR program. Please send your comments to comments151@navysbir.com

 

New DoD SBIR Commercialization Training Program
The DoD Velociter Program - Commercialization and transition of your technology can be challenging. The Velociter Program, sponsored by the Department of Defense Office of Small Business Programs, equips innovators with the right tools to overcome these challenges.

Velociter services include Opportunity Analysis; Matchmaking; Business Mentorship; Tech Showcase; Marketing Sessions and much more. [read more...]

 

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
