The Long-Range Acquisition Forecast (LRAF) is an acquisition planning aid for industry to gain a better understanding of the Naval Research Laboratory's (NRL) requirements. In addition, it is NRL's policy that small, small disadvantaged, women-owned, HubZone veteran-owned and service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses receive a fair and equitable share of the contracts awarded by this activity.

The forecast is a tool that will help the small business community to effectively market their technology, goods and services to the cognizant components within NRL. The forecast of NRL's business opportunities include projects of all anticipated actions above $700,000.

Disclaimer: United States Code Title 15, Section 637(A)(12)(C), requires the Department of the Navy to prepare a forecast of expected contract opportunities for next and successive fiscal years and make the forecast available to the small business community. NRL will fulfill this requirement by publishing this forecast annually as well as updating this information as additional information becomes available. The LRAF does not constitute a specific offer or commitment by NRL or ONR to fund, in whole or in part, the opportunities referenced herein. This listing is not all-inclusive and is subject to change.
