SMALL BUSINESS OFFICE
"WE ARE MOVING THE DIAL FOR SMALL BUSINESS"
In accordance with Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 19.201 – The Government’s (Department of the Navy’s) policy is to provide “maximum practicable” prime and subcontract opportunities to small business. Goals and targets are assigned in various small business categories to ensure this policy is fulfilled.
The Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) Port Hueneme Division’s (PHD) “Office of Small Business (OSB) Programs” actively supports the Secretary of the Navy’s objective to "identify and develop small business concerns that support the Navy-Marine Corps force for tomorrow" through outreach, training and counseling. Special emphasis is placed on assisting concerns that have been historically underutilized or have had difficulty participating in our procurement process. It is our intent to bring faster, more efficient information on NSWC Port Hueneme Division forecasted procurement opportunities, thereby providing the business community adequate time to develop business strategies. The NSWC Port Hueneme Division buying activity is working diligently to accomplish the command’s Small Business Program goals. Our mission is to ensure that every small business concern that wishes to do business with the Navy at NSWC Port Hueneme Division has the necessary knowledge about the Small Business Program and the Navy’s procurement processes to successfully participate, either as a prime contractor or a subcontractor, in competition for NSWC Port Hueneme Division’s contracts.
The NSWC PHD OSB is the central point of contact for small business firms that want to learn how to conduct business with NSWC PHD as a prime contractor. To assist small businesses, there are many resources posted on this web page. Of special importance, to provide small businesses with information on the specific types of services and commodities currently under contract, the PHD OSB in conjunction with the PHD Acquisition Department posts a 5-Year Acquisition Forecast spreadsheet, updated once each quarter, by close of business one week after the end of each quarter. Our hope is that small businesses will benefit from this list as they strategize to capture contracts as a prime contractor or subcontractor. A shared goal of the PHD OSB and PHD Acquisition Department is to foster increased competition for this command’s contracts. Please utilize the information on this website to help you navigate how to do business with the Navy.
Please note: the 5-Year Acquisition Forecast includes contracts that are anticipated to recur, but there is no guarantee of a follow-on solicitation.
