NASA LogoNASA Acquisition Forecast

It is NASA policy (see NASA FAR Supplement 1807.72) to prepare an annual forecast and a semiannual update of expected contract opportunities, or classes of contract opportunities, for each fiscal year.  The forecast consolidates anticipated procurements (in excess of the simplified acquisition threshold) at each NASA Center with the aim of increasing industries' advance knowledge of NASA requirements and to enhance competition.

The procurements described in this forecast are expected to be solicited in this fiscal year and beyond, based on the best information available at the time of publication.  All projected procurements are subject to revision or cancellation.  Final decisions as to the extent of competition, small or disadvantaged business set-asides, estimated value, etc., will not be made until each procurement is initiated.  The data is for planning purposes only; it does not represent a presolicitation synopsis or constitute an invitation for bid or request for proposal, nor is it a commitment by the Government to purchase the described supplies and services.  You are urged to review until November 8, 2019. for the actual notice of a pending contract action.

Beginning on November 8, 2019, you will find these notices at under Contract Opportunities.

Please Note: All Excel links are in Excel ".xlsx" format.
