Long-Range Acquisition Forecast

The Long-Range Acquisition Forecast (LRAF) acts as an aid for advanced acquisition planning for all of our customers to gain a better understanding of the Office of Naval Research (ONR) requirements. In addition, it is ONR's policy that small, small disadvantaged, women-owned, HubZone, veteran-owned and service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses receive a fair and equitable share of the contracts awarded by this activity.

The forecast is a tool that will help the small business community to effectively market their technology, goods and services to the cognizant components within ONR. The forecast of ONR's business opportunities include projects of all anticipated actions above $750,000. Download the ONR LRAF for FY22-FY23.
