ASN (RD&A) Geurts Issues Memo on Small Business Utilization for a Strategic Advantage
James Geurts, Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Research, Development & Acquisition (ASN (RD&A)) brings to Naval warfighters his rich SOCOM experience in delivering innovation, faster, through new collaborations and inventive practices.

Mr. Geurts' most recent guidance to DoN acquisition teams on small business and SBIR/STTR conveys the imperative role Small Business play as DoN team members and their contribution to DoN's success in meeting the National Defense Strategy (NDS). As such, the instruction calls for Acquisition Commands and Program Executive Officers (PEOs) to prioritize utilization of Small Business and includes these critical SBIR/STTR points:
  • DoN acquisition teams focus on reviewing and assessing SBIR/STTR capabilities in developing acquisition strategies - and such strategies should address incentives for SBIR/STTR use.
  • Acquisition Commands and PEOs should leverage "agile, time-saving authorities" of the Phase III award process - without further competition - where this action meets performance and affordability mandates.
  • The memo concludes with an emphatic challenge: "Enhanced implementation of the Small Business Program will require .changing the way we do acquisition."

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
