Synopsis: 49100421Q0058 - 2021 Innovation Research Interchange Standard Sponsorship

The National Science Foundation (NSF) intends to renew the annual 2021 Standard Sponsorship of the Innovation Research Interchange (IRI) (formerly Industrial Research Institute) through December 31, 2021.

The Innovation Research Interchange is an authoritative source of R&D innovation leadership solutions for its member companies since 1938. Organizations form its governance and develop its programs and services to meet their needs. There are more than 200 companies and labs who are current members. It is essential that our current grantees have access to a diverse R&D community and working groups for collaboration, resource exchange and mutual problem solving. Our grantees will be provided such access to these opportunities, through the NSF sponsorship.

Under the order, the funding will cover the costs of Virtual Event Registrations, Programs, and Services to Enhance Organizational, Operational and Strategic Innovation.

The proposed contract action is for services for which the Government intends to sponsor with only one source under the authority of FAR 13.106-1(b). This notice of intent is not a request for competitive proposals. This synopsis is for informational purposes only.
