The NRL Office of Small Business Programs (OSBP) serves as the primary gateway for small businesses considering doing business with NRL and it staunchly promotes small business participation through prime contracting, subcontracting and partnering. The OSBP endeavors to broaden acquisition opportunities where small businesses can provide innovative solutions for optimal sailor support and enhance a culture of small business inclusivity that supports scientific research and advanced technological development.
Awards are made through a variety of contracting instruments, such as NRL’s Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) and the multiple award vehicle, SeaPort-NxG.
