FY18 Rapid Innovation Fund (RIF)
Broad Agency Announcement Released

The Department of Defense (DoD) has released a special notice for the FY18 Rapid Innovation Fund (RIF) Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) on FedBizOps (www.fbo.gov/). The RIF BAA includes a section with Navy specific topics, but there are also separate sections for combatant commands that have related topics (administered directly by the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD).

The Rapid Innovation Fund (RIF) is a DoD-wide program to transition small business technology to the warfighter. Congressional language states that all awards under the RIF program will be by a competitive, merit-based solicitation with preference to small businesses. 90% of RIF awards are to small businesses with 60-70% having participated in the SBIR program (RIF qualifies as a SBIR Phase III funding source). Projects may receive up to $3M in program funding during a 24 month period of performance. Transition is required at the end of the RIF into a Program of Record (POR) or fielded system (details are included in the BAA). [read more...]

Required Cyber Security Certification:
What You Need To Know

On November 4, 2010, the President signed Executive Order 13556, Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI). This established a government-wide CUI Program to standardize the way the Government (and Government contractors) will handle unclassified information that requires protection. The guiding document for this endeavor is NIST Special Publication 800-171.

Full compliance of NIST SP 800-171 is required no later than December 31, 2017. [read more...]

 

The Future Navy
On May 17, 2017 Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson threw down a gauntlet before the Dept. of the Navy, challenging the Department "… to get to work now to both build more ships, and to think forward - innovate - as we go. To remain competitive, we must start today and we must improve faster … The pace at which potential competitors are moving demands that we in turn increase the speed at which we act."

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
