Jan Steiner Thoro Packaging Jerry Wilson PRMG Liaison for NAVSEA Corona Division Jennifer Stewart US Navy / Naval Weapons Surface Warfare Center “Our Industry Day helps show how we do business, what our needs are, and ultimately increases competition and re-duces acquisition lead time,” said Dan Deconzo, Corona’s Deputy for Small Busi-ness. “It also informs the community about our technical capabilities and improves commu-nication with local busi-nesses that can help us execute our mission to support the warfighter and the Navy.” Harman said many businesses can have a misperception that Navy small business officials complicate the bidding process but that’s really not the case. She emphasized Corona is involved “up front and early” in the procurement process and “that’s where the entire De-partment of the Navy needs to be. We want to influence change and create a culture of small business inclusiveness across the Department of the Navy.” Harman sees the small business outreach as more than just a way of meeting a goal. It’s a way to improve national se-curity. NSWC Corona (cel-ebrating its 75th year) helps warfighters train, fight and win by using measurement, analy-sis and independent assessment. As one of the largest employers in Riverside County headquartered in Norco, NSWC Corona employs more than 3,100 worldwide and contributes more than $300 million annually to the regional economy.
