The Small Business Roundtable (SBRT) of the Rhode Island Chapter of the
National Contract Management Association (NCMA), in coordination with the
Naval Undersea Warfare Center Division Newport (NUWCDIVNPT) Office of Small
Business Programs (OSBP), will be conducting outreach efforts to local,
regional and national small businesses (considered small under NAICS Code
541330) in the form of a “Monthly Breakfast Series.”
The *first meeting is scheduled for **January 8, 2013 from 0900 -
1100* and will feature a presentation by the recently-hired NUWCDIVNPT Small
Business Advocate. The Commanding Officer of NUWCDIVNPT and other NUWCDIVNPT
leaders have been invited.
*WHILE THIS EVENT IS PRIMARILY FOR SMALL BUSINESSES, LARGE BUSINESSES ARE
ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND AS WELL* and will be held at NUWC Division Newport
Building 80 located at 1176 Howell Street, Newport, RI. Personnel without a
current CAC Card or NAVSEA badge will need to provide ID in the form of a
state-issued driver’s license.
*Types of Small Businesses that should attend* include those that currently
provide, or want to provide, specific engineering and technical support
services that align with NUWCDIVNPT’s role as the Navy’s full-spectrum
research, development, test and evaluation, engineering, and fleet support
center for submarine warfare systems and many other systems associated with
the undersea battlespace. NUWC Division Newport is responsible, cradle to
grave, for all aspects of systems under its charter, and is engaged in
efforts ranging from participation in fundamental research to the support of
evolving operational capabilities in the U.S. Navy fleet. The major thrust
of NUWC Division Newport’s activities is in applied research and system
The SBRT is soliciting ideas for future speakers/topics for the Monthly
Breakfast Series, and asks that each small business *invite another small
business to attend*.
