  2. What is NSA Looking For? • The breadth of products and services NSA acquires is varied. • Your Agency customer base breaks into three broad categories: • Signals Intelligence, or SIGINT: This is the classic “codebreaking” • Information Assurance, or IA: This is the “codemaking” side of the Agency’s mission. • “Mission Enablers.” This is the glue that holds everything together.

  4. How Do We Acquire? • NSA does not openly advertise our business opportunities on FEDBIZOPPS www.fedbizopps.gov • NSA follows the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) www.arnet.gov/far and Defense supplement to FAR (DFARS) www.acq.osd.mil/dpap/dars/dfars/html/r20070913/tochtml.htm • NSA makes use of the National Security Exception which allows for “Other Than Full and Open Competition” • We match our requirements with potential vendors through market research • Market Research Tool - ARC
