How To Do Business With NAVWAR:

Visit our website to view current and future business opportunities:

Select “Business Opportunities” from the left side of the main menu, and then choose among the three NAVWAR buying locations (Headquarters, NIWC Atlantic, NIWC Pacific). The below choices are available to you.

  • Market Survey & Future Opportunity:
    View “Sources Sought Notices”, “Pre-solicitation Notices”, “Request for Information” or “Draft Solicitations.” Sources Sought Notices are requests for capability statements in order to determine the level of competition available. Results from these notices are frequently used to determine the possibility for an 8(a) set-aside or small business set-aside.

You may also subscribe by Federal Supply Class (i.e., FSC or CBD Code) to receive e-notice of new NAVWAR requirements meeting the selected FSC.
