DescriptionAre you a small business selling a commercial product you want to qualify to sell the U.S. military? Do you have a technology developed through the SBIR program and need commercialization opportunities? Are you a defense contractor looking for funding sources to test and integrate small business technologies into your platforms?
RIF contracts can provide a vehicle for acquisition programs to begin procuring products from small businesses. The next BAA is anticipated to be released around December 2019 (funding contingent on FY20 congressional appropriation).
Please join the National Defense Industrial Association and the DOD Rapid Innovation Fund for a panel discussion on how to compete effectively in the RIF program. Panelists will provide perspective on:
- BAA timing, submission process, topic development featuring Ted Bujewski, DOD RIF PM
- How to team with a prime contractor
- Current warfighter / acquisition program technology priorities
- Small business testimonial - How to compete effectively
