The Program Directors (PDs) - Aviation, Surface, Undersea, Cross Warfare and International - are responsible for accepting and executing projects assigned to NAWCTSD. The primary point of contact will be the Program Director responsible for the Warfare Area most closely aligned with the customer. Accordingly, all work is assigned to one of the PDs.

Those work assignments may reach NAWCTSD through a variety of methods. The most common approach for Navy customers is via the SYSCOMs (NAVAIR, NAVSEA, and SPAWAR). In those cases the OPNAV sponsor determines the validity and relative need of a respective task, allocates resources, and tasks the appropriate SYSCOM to manage the project. In turn, the SYSCOM tasks NAWCTSD to execute the task (e.g., acquisition of a new helicopter trainer, or conduct a training skills and requirements analysis for a new ship class). The mechanism for gaining access in this method is to elevate the requirement through the applicable operational chain of command to obtain the OPNAV sponsor's support. It is DoD Policy that a fair proportion of its total purchases (contracts and subcontracts) be placed with small business concerns. NAWCTSD is strongly committed to the use of small business concerns in executing its mission. Accordingly, the Center maintains an Office of Small Business Programs which is available to assist small businesses seeking to do business with NAWCTSD.

NAWCTSD procurement opportunities are advertised in one of several ways dependent upon the method of procurement and the estimated dollar value of the contract action.

Unless specifically exempted by regulation, procurement opportunities conducted within the NAWCTSD Contracting Authority are generally publicized on Federal Business Opportunities (aka FedBizOpps) at www.fbo.gov/ and Navy Electronic Commerce Online (aka NECO) at www.neco.navy.mil.

  • Procurements conducted under the following Command Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity Multiple Award Contracts (aka "MACs") including Training Systems Contract IV (aka “TSC IV”), Fielded Training Systems Support IV (aka “FTSS IV”), and Training Data Products Contract (aka “TDPC”) may be publicized on these sites.  Please see the “Multiple Award Contracts” Tab on this site (http://www.navair.navy.mil/nawctsd/node/196) for a description of these MACs, as well as a MAC holder Point of Contact (POC) list.  Industry suppliers that are not prime contract holders to a MAC are encouraged to monitor FedBizOpps and NECO for potential subcontracting opportunities. It is the responsibility of industry suppliers to directly solicit its products and/or services to the MAC prime contractors for potential subcontracting opportunities.
     
  • Procurements conducted under Contracted Maintenance Modification Aircrew and Related Services (aka “CMMARS”) MAC utilize the CMMARS Competition Library.  For all CMMARS inquiries, please contact Chris Giggy, Director of the Fast Acquisition Solutions To Enable Readiness (FASTER) Acquisition Cell at 301-995-4071/[email protected] or Lisa Nelson, FASTER Acq Cell Contracting Officer at 407-380-8549/[email protected]

Direct access is the second most common method. Customers (e.g., Navy PEOs, PMAs, PMOs; Sister Services; Non-DOD Training Agents) may elect to request NAWCTSD directly to support their respective needs. Allied military may also access us with a letter of request from their embassy to the Navy International Programs Office. This avenue is typically conducted on a reimbursable basis where the customer provides requisite resources direct to NAWCTSD to enable project execution. Resources include project funds, travel funds and in-house salary funds. NAWCTSD's acceptance of these tasks is predicated on available capacity to effectively execute the task(s). Key components include available skill mix and the necessary depth of skills.

Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR)

The SBIR Program was established in 1982 by the Small Business Innovation Development Act [Public Law (PL) 97-219] and re-authorized by subsequent legislation. Under PL 106-554, Congress reauthorized the SBIR program through Fiscal Year (FY) 2017. It is the primary vehicle through which the Federal Government funds small technology companies to perform research and research and development (R&D) projects. The program's purposes are to:

  1. Stimulate technological innovation.
  2. Strengthen the role of small business in meeting Department of Defense (DoD) R&D needs.
  3. Foster and encourage participation by minority and disadvantaged persons in technological innovation.
  4. Increase the commercial application of DoD-supported research or R&D results.
  5. Insert technological innovations into Naval Aviation systems.

The SBIR Program uses a three-phase structure:

  • Phase I is to determine the scientific or technical merit and feasibility of ideas over a period not to exceed six months.
  • Phase II is to conduct research and deliver a product or process over a period generally not to exceed 24 months, with contract awards based on Phase I results and a comprehensive proposal.
  • Phase III is to transition and implement the research product or process to the military using non-SBIR funding and to pursue commercial applications of the R&D using non-federal funding.
