NGA’s goal is to make awards under three research topic areas. This is a Research effort and Concept Exploration or Capability Demonstration will be considered. The NAICS codes for this procurement includes 541712, Research and Development in the physical, Engineering and Life Sciences, but other NAICS codes may apply as well. The period of performance will not exceed period of 180 days with no option periods.
NGA encourages small businesses and universities to propose under this BAA. NGA also strongly encourages and accepts proposals from collaborations of entities (industry and industry, industry and university, university and university, etc.) because research in multidisciplinary Topic Areas may require forming teams with strengths in multiple science and engineering fields.
