Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) Process
   – What is the BAA?
    •   BAA defined in the Federal Acquisition
        Regulation (FAR) Part 35
    •   Basic Authority of the BAA originated from the
        Competition in Contracting Act (CICA) of 1984.
    •   For the acquisition of Basic and Applied
        Research and that part of development not
        related to the development of a specific system
        or hardware procurement.” (i.e., RDT&E Budget
        Activities 1 through 3)

Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) Process
     • Evaluation performed in accordance with
        evaluation criteria specified in BAA
        through peer or scientific review process.
     • Written evaluation reports required on
        individual proposals
     • Proposals need not be evaluated against
        each other since they are not submitted
        against a common work statement.

    •     Only for work defined in RDT&E Budget
          Activities 1 through 3 (formerly Research
          Categories 6.1 through 6.3a)

          Engineering, or any other type of support

–       How does the authority of the “Unsolicited
        Proposal” fit in the picture:
    •     Policy of Federal Government to encourage
          submission of new and innovative ideas through
          BAAs, SBIR topics, STTR topics, Program R&D
          Announcements, or any other Government-
          initiated solicitation or program. When the new
          and innovative ideas do not fall under topic
          areas publicized under those programs or
          techniques, the ideas may be submitted as
          unsolicited proposals. (FAR 15.602)
