Praxis is seeking qualified firms to meet general and project-specific requirements under several prime contracts with the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL).
Although all potential subcontractors are invited to register and qualify with Praxis (see Step 1 below), Praxis only accepts proposals that are submitted in response to a formal Request for Proposal (RFP) from an authorized Praxis task manager. The RFP will include a Contract Data Requirements List (CDRL), applicable security requirements, and a draft Contract Security Classification Specification (DD254). If you have any questions about submitting a proposal, please contact the Praxis task manager.
