Naval Research Laboratory -- NRL WIDE BROAD AGENCY ANNOUNCEMENT -- N00173-17-S-BA01

Funding Agency:
Department of Defense

The Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) is the Navy's corporate laboratory. NRL conducts basic and applied research for the Navy in a variety of scientific and technical disciplines. The basic research program is driven by perceptions about future requirements of the Navy.

General Information regarding the Naval Research Laboratory can be found on our Homepage located at http://www.nrl.navy.mil. A variety of Informational Publications regarding NRL can be found at http://www.nrl.navy.mil/content.php?P=PUBLICATIONS.

NRL conducts most of its research program at its own facilities but also funds some related research such as anticipated by this announcement. More extensive research support opportunities are available from the Office of Naval Research (ONR). ONR announcements may be accessed via the Internet at http://www.onr.navy.mil.

The Navy's operational effectiveness depends on its ability to keep pace with rapidly developing technologies. NRL contributes to this requirement by conducting research in the following areas, organized into NRL'S three research directorates and Naval Center for Space Technology:

SYSTEMS DIRECTORATE CODE 5000
MATERIALS SCIENCE AND COMPONENT TECHNOLOGY DIRECTORATE CODE 6000
OCEAN AND ATMOSPHERIC SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY DIRECTORATE CODE 7000
NAVAL CENTER FOR SPACE TECHNOLOGY CODE 8000

This is NRL’s Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) issued under the provisions of paragraphs 35.016 and 6.102(d)(2) of the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR). Proposals may range from theoretical studies to proof-of-concept to include fabrication and delivery of a prototype. However, this is limited to research procurements for which it would be impossible to draft an adequate RFP in sufficient detail without restraining the technical response and thus hindering competition rather than expanding it. BAA topics include all NRL sites located in the Washington, DC area, the Stennis Space Center, MS, and Monterey, CA. Proposals submitted in response to a BAA announcement that are selected for award are considered to be the result of full and open competition and are in full compliance with the provisions of Public Law 98-369, "The Competition in Contracting Act of 1984."

White Papers are continuously accepted. Proposals are only accepted upon request.
