We Want to Do Business With Small Business

Our Small Business Office helps local small business firms develop the products, skills and capabilities to compete successfully for NSWC PHD contracts and subcontracts. Through conferences and one-on-one discussions, qualified companies learn how to get their fair share of the government purchases and contracts designated for small businesses.

Our industry partnership program provides guidance for research and development and can include the use of naval vessels as platforms for testing and evaluation of promising new products.
