The Rapid Innovation Fund (RIF) provides a collaborative vehicle for small businesses to provide the Department of Defense with innovative technologies that can be rapidly inserted into acquisition programs that meet specific defense needs. Businesses that are not rated a "Small Business" under the relevant NAICS codes may also participate in RIF. RIF is not restricted to small businesses. RIF is administered by the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) Under Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering (USD R&E)
