8 1204.401 Policy.

(a) Consistent with the requirements of the Small Business Act (15 U.S.C. 631-650), as amended, and the National Aeronautics and Space Act of 1958, as amended (42 U.S.C. 2473(b)(5)), it is the policy of NASA to place a fair proportion of its total purchases and contracts with small business concerns.

(b) In carrying out the NASA procurement program, the primary consideration shall be that of securing contract performance, including obtaining deliveries of required items or services at the time, in the quantity and of the quality prescribed. In the area of research and development contracts, the general policy of NASA is to award such contracts to those organizations determined by responsible personnel to have a high degree of competence in the specific branch of science or technology required for the successful conduct of the work. It is in the interest of the civilian space program that the number of firms engaged in research and development work for NASA be expanded and that there be an increase in the extent of participation in such work by competent small business firms.

81204.402 Responsibility.

(a) Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization. The Director, Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization, NASA Headquarters, is responsible for the development, supervision and coordination of the NASA Small Business Program. The Director is also responsible for formulating policy and procedures relating to small business, and representing NASA before other government agencies on matters primarily affecting small business.

(b) NASA field installations. The head of each NASA field installation will designate a qualified individual in the procurement office as a “small business specialist,” to provide a cen. tral point of contact to which small business concerns may direct inquiries concerning participation in the NASA procurement program, or secure assist ance in submitting bids or proposals as well as performance of contracts. Where the head of a field installation considers that the volume of procurement at the installation does not war. rant a full-time small business specialist, he/she may assign such duties to qualified procurement personnel on a part-time basis. NASA field installations shall establish and maintain liai. son with the Small Business Administration representative or the appropriate Small Business Administration Regional Office in matters relating to field procurement activities. 8 1204.403 General requirements.

(a) All proposed procurement transactions in excess of $2,500 shall be examined by small business specialists prior to issuance of bids or requests for proposals to determine suitability for small business participation or setaside.

(b) The appropriate office of the Small Business Administration shall be informed of proposed procurements estimated to exceed $10,000.

(c) Bidders' list shall be maintained on a current basis and reviewed to assure that small business firms are given an equitable opportunity to participate in those procurements suitable for performance by such firms.

(d) NASA small business personnel shall acquire descriptive data, brochures, or other information concerning small business firms which appear competent to perform research and development work in fields in which NASA is interested and furnish such information to technical personnel. The Small Business Advisor at Head. quarters and the small business specialists at NASA field installations shall assist and consult with NASA

technical personnel in the analysis of such information, in arranging field inspection of facilities in making appointments for technical personnel with representatives of small business firms, and obtaining from other agencies appraisals of work performed by such firms.

(e) In accordance with Pub. L. 95507, NASA will require contractors having contracts in excess of $1,000,000 for the construction of any public facility, and in excess of $500,000 for all other contracts, and of such nature as to afford opportunities for subcontracting in substantial amounts, to establish and conduct small business subcontracting programs. Such programs will be periodically reviewed by NASA small business representatives to evaluate their adequacy.

(f) NASA will encourage competent small business concerns to submit unsolicited proposals for research and development work in areas within NASA's responsibility, which may lead to contracts for such work. The forma. tion of contractor pools or joint ven. tures to perform research and development work will also be encouraged.

(g) NASA small business personnel will disseminate to small business concerns information concerning inventions for which NASA holds patents on behalf of the United States and under which it is NASA policy to grant licenses.

(h) Small business participation in NASA procurement shall be accurately measured, recorded, and publicized.
