(a) Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization (OSDBU). The Associate Administrator for Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization, NASA Headquarters, is responsible for the development, supervision, and coordination of the NASA Small Business Program. The Associate Administrator 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 Headquarters and Field Installations. The Directors of Field Installations and the Associate Administrator for Procurement at Headquarters will designate a qualified individual as a “Small Business Specialist” to provide a central point of contact to which small and small disadvantaged business concerns may direct inquiries concerning participation in the NASA procurement program, or secure assistance in submitting bids or proposals and performance of contracts. Where the Director of the Field Installation considers that the volume of procurement at the Installation does not warrant a full-time Small Business Specialist, the Director may assign such duties to qualified procurement personnel on a part-time basis. NASA Field Installations shall establish and maintain liaison with the Small Business Administration (SBA) Procurement Center Representative (PCR) or the appropriate Small Business Administration Regional Office in matters relating to Field Installation procurement activities. A Small Business Technical Advisor shall be assigned to each contracting activity within the agency to which the SBA has assigned a PCR.
