NSRP White Paper Solicitation

Wednesday, July 21, 2010

The NSRP Executive Control Board (ECB) invites the 10 NSRP Ship Production Panels to submit whitepapers to be considered for funding as NSRP Panel Projects. Submissions must be in accordance with the latest NSRP Panel Project Guide (Rev. G dated 7/15/2010).

The ECB continues to strongly support the Panels by providing funding for projects that are not well suited for funding via the major project solicitation process, yet address the program’s objectives for improving technology, networking, knowledge-sharing and innovation within the industry and the Navy, as well as working with regulatory agencies to the betterment of industry, employees and the environment.

Proposed panel projects which address the current SECNAV priorities of improving quality (reducing rework), reduction of total ownership costs and increasing energy efficiency will be of particular interest. In addition, the Navy Program Office has asked NSRP to solicit for proposals on ways to reduce Industry overhead in support of the recent Department of Defense wide initiative led by Under Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter.

The NSRP 2005 Strategic Investment Plan is being updated to align the program with current war fighting demands, as well as the present economic and industry climate.

Award: Each Panel Chair will be invited to present proposed projects at an upcoming ECB Panel Project Selection meeting (most likely in December or January); at which time the ECB will decide which projects will be funded. Based on the NSRP requirements to demonstrate value, Panel Chairs should expect questions from the ECB and Navy sponsors on expected benefits and potential return on investment.

Deadline: Deadline for submittal of other proposals is no later than October 8, 2010. Please submit electronic files to Justin Montague (justin.montague@ati.org).

Questions can be directed to Justin (justin.montague@ati.org), Mary Saady (mary.saady@ati.org) or Jim House (house@ati.org).
