ONR’s directorates balance a robust science and technology (S&T) portfolio, allocating funds to meet the warfighter's requirements.
Atlanta Office Closed Temporarily
Due to an unexpected power outage, ONR's Atlanta regional field office will be closed through July 25. The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) has temporarily closed the Sam Nunn Federal Building, where the office is located, while it works aggressively to restore normal building operations to minimize further disruption.
Since this closure was unscheduled, ONR Atlanta was unable to provide advance notice to its performers, including contractors and grantees. ONR apologizes for the inconvenience, and looks forward to resuming operations Monday, July 28.
