Army Futures Command

About AFC

PURPOSE U.S. Army Futures Command (AFC) exists to transform the Army to ensure war-winning future readiness. Headquartered in Austin, Texas, AFC has more than 17,000 personnel worldwide. It is the newest of the Army’s four major commands, established in 2018 to ensure the Army and its Soldiers remain at the forefront of technological innovation and warfighting ability. FOCUS AFC currently focuses on three overarching priorities: prioritizing people, designing Army 2040 and delivering Army 2030. The command is executing six essential functions in pursuit of these priorities – future operational environment, research, concepts, experimentation, requirements and integration – with support from industry, academia and Joint and multinational partners. IMPACT The groundbreaking work of AFC’s headquarters directorates, subordinate commands, research laboratories, innovation hubs and Cross-Functional Teams is advancing the Army's six modernization priorities: long range precision fires, next generation combat vehicle, future vertical lift, air and missile defense, network and Soldier lethality. AFC pursues and integrates these advances in close coordination with other members of the Army transformation enterprise, strengthening the Army’s ability to develop and maintain future readiness as an integrated team. AFC leads the way for the Army as a whole by framing problems – and solutions – across the full DOTMLPF-P (Doctrine, Organization, Training, Materiel, Leadership and Education, Personnel, Facilities and Policy), enabling creation of the best solutions to keep Soldiers safe and America strong.

New to working with the Army? For those new to working with the Army, we suggest also exploring the below resources and topics. Understanding army contracting Become Familiar with Contracting Regulations and Procedures It's very important to understand the rules that govern Department of Defense (DoD) acquisitions, as they are complex. The following regulations govern contracting procedures within the Army and are available online Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) - https://www.acquisition.gov Utilize the Army Small Business Programs The Army runs several socioeconomic programs that provide assistance to small businesses of various types (http://osbp.army.mil/). Examples include: Service-Disabled / Veteran-Owned Small Business Historically Underutilized Business Zones Small Disadvantaged / 8(a) Business Woman-Owned Small Business Subcontracting Mentor-Protag Small Business Innovation Research Small Business Technology Transfer Historical Black Colleges and Universities / Minority Institutions Pursue Subcontracting Opportunities A large secondary market exists in subcontracting opportunities with DoD prime contractors. The DoD Prime Contractor Directory identifies large prime contractors, projects and points of contact. You can use this directory to assess potential subcontracting opportunities. The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) SUB-Net database allows you to search for potential subcontracting opportunities and includes solicitations and opportunities posted by large prime contractors and other non-federal agencies. The SBA's "Subcontracting Assistance Directory" also identifies people you can contact if you have questions about subcontracting. Monitor Federal Business Opportunities Federal business opportunities are posted on www.SAM.gov. This is a single point of entry for the federal government that is updated daily. Explore DoD Research and Engineering Opportunities The Defense Innovation Marketplace is a communications resource to provide industry with improved insight into DoD research and engineering investment priorities. The Marketplace contains strategic documents, solicitations and information on news and vents to better inform independent research and development (IR&D) planning. The IR&D Secure Portal also houses project summaries that provide DoD with visibility into IR&D efforts submitted. Connecting Industry and DoD Once you determine the product or service you wish to sell to the Army, you’ll need to register your company in SAM. First, however, you’ll need to identify an appropriate Federal Supply Classification Code (FSC) for your company. FSCs are used to group products into logical families for management purposes. FSCs are listed here: https://everyspec.com/FSC-CODE. You’ll also need to consult The North American Industry Classification System (NAICS), a system that groups establishments into industries based on its primary activity, to determine the NAICS code for your business size. You can utilize the Small Business Administration (SBA) size standard table to determine your business size in that NAICS code. Please keep in mind that it’s not uncommon for companies to qualify as small for one type of product they sell, but as large for another. When you’ve determined your FSC and NAICS codes, you can register in SAM. Registration is free and can be accomplished online at www.sam.gov. During this process, you will be assigned a new CAGE (Commercial and Government Entity) code if one doesn’t already exist; or, if you have an existing CAGE code, your information will be updated. The CAGE code is a five-character alphanumeric identifier assigned to entities located in the United States and its territories. After your initial SAM registration, you must update your registration every year. Be sure not to overlook the Dynamic Small Business Search (DSBS) profile of your SAM registration. This database is also used by government buyers seeking specific small businesses.
