Our professional industry engagement services help our customers find and build business relationships to evaluate options, improve requirement definitions and become more educated buyers – all of which improve program success.

We provide industry engagement services that support project teams with a deep understanding of Industrial Regional Benefits (IRB), content constraints, market analyses, awareness of an industry's capabilities and procurement approaches and contracting issues.

In addition, our Naval Material Assurance and Submarine and Ship Design performance teams offer direct engagement with vendors, definition of requirements, specification development and compilation of technical and cost information to support the customer in independent validation and verification (IV&V), and quality assurance (QA) of deliverables.
