How to Hire Bashpole for Government Applied R&D

As a U.S. Government entity, you can save time and hassle by hiring Bashpole Software as a vendor without putting the contract out to bid!

No Competition Required

Bashpole Software, Inc. is a sole-source justified contractor with primary performance history with the Department of Defense through the Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) program. Congress intends agencies and their government-owned, contractor-operated facilities give preference to SBIR awardees, including sole source awards. Sole-source justification enables all departments and agencies to award sole-source contracts to Bashpole by way of the SBIR Phase III contract mechanism, thereby bypassing the usual requirement to put projects out to bid. This greatly reduces the paperwork and time the DOL would normally need to begin work on a project. Bashpole and the DOD contracting officers can provide agency with further information regarding FAR 6.302-5, 10 U.S.C. 2304(b)(2), 41 U.S.C. 253(b)(2), and how to proceed with the sole-source mechanism.

We have been funded by private sector sales and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Initiative (DARPA), where we have secured several Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Contracts.

Contract and Grant Partnership Possible

Bashpole Software’s team includes several experienced proposal writers that can work with your organization to enable us to partner on relevant funding proposals.  These arrangements are commonly useful when your organization has data that it needs analyzed or customized technology that requries research and development with funds from outside of your organization.
