NAVSEA to Host Small Business Forum Aug. 13 at Navy Yard

By Naval Sea Systems Command Corporate Communications

WASHINGTON - The Naval Sea System Command will host "Operation Innovation," a small business industry day Aug. 13 on the Washington Navy Yard to provide small businesses with information on prime and sub-contracting opportunities for various NAVSEA programs.

The Navy buys more than $12 billion in goods and services each year from its small businesses partners, and at NAVSEA alone, small business invoices annually total more than $2 billion. 

Planned speakers for the forum include Assistant Secretary of the Navy Sean Stackley; Commander Naval Sea Systems Command, Vice Adm. Willy Hilarides; and other senior leaders from Navy, NAVSEA and Program Executive Offices.

Small Business representatives may attend either a morning information session from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. or an afternoon session from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.  Additionally, program office representatives will be available to answer contracting questions from 9 - 11:30 a.m. and again in the afternoon from 2 - 4:30 p.m.  

Attendance is limited to two representatives from each attending small business, and participants will be selected on a first come, first serve basis, based on when security clearance information is received. 

Further details on how to register for the forum, search for solicitation N00024-15-R-9999 on the Federal Business Opportunities site:

Parking on the Navy Yard is not available, and attendees are reminded that the government will not reimburse participants for any expenses associated with travel or participation in this event.

NAVSEA designs, builds, delivers and maintains ships and systems on time and on cost for the U.S. Navy. NAVSEA is the largest of the Navy's five system commands. With a fiscal year budget of nearly $30 billion, NAVSEA accounts for one quarter of the Navy's entire budget.
