Silicon Valley Innovation Program (SVIP) - Solicitations

Silicon Valley Innovation Program (SVIP) - Solicitations

There are two solicitations from Silicon Valley Innovation Program (SVIP), on behalf of the US Coast Guard. SVIP is the US Department of Homeland Security’s alternative procurement agency to reach alternative innovators in the Silicon Valley and similar ecosystems. It is different to DIU in terms that while DIU seeks mature technologies that it can put into warfighters’ hands very quickly hence opening solicitations for only 10 working days, SVIP seeks to develop new capabilities from lower TRLs. Its calls are open for up to one year and SVIP accepts applications every three months, see below the three quarterly dates.
