The Air Force has hundreds of contract opportunities for small businesses and our goal is to make it easy for your business to identify these opportunities.

Acquisition Forecasts (also referred to as either Long Range Acquisition Estimate (LRAE), Long Range Acquisition Forecast (LRAF) or Procurement Forecasts) provides you with the information you need to understand Air Force requirements and prepare for how your business may be able to meet these needs.
