On Feb. 20, NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, will host the 29th Marshall Small Business Alliance meeting. The event will take place 7 a.m.-12:30 p.m. at the Davidson Center for Space Exploration.

At the meeting, NASA’s Office of Procurement will introduce a new integrated procurement operating model that modernizes support capabilities to better achieve NASA missions. This includes the agency’s Artemis lunar exploration program, which will use innovative new technologies and systems to explore more of the Moon than ever before. Improving NASA’s contracting model will allow NASA centers to share resources and lower operating costs, and create new prime and subcontracting procurement opportunities for small businesses.

Other topics will include a Small Business Administration small business legislative update, a Human Landing System Program update, a Marshall administrative support services acquisition update and NASA contracting product service lines acquisition update. Registration will begin at 7 a.m., followed by the event from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

  • Glenn Delgado, associate administrator of NASA Office of Small Business Program
