Army ERDC posts sources sought
On February 26, the U.S. Army posted a request for information for ERDC OTA Military Engineering. Responses are due by 5:00 p.m. Central on March 14.
US Corps of Engineer – Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) has a requirement to enter into an Other Transaction Agreement (OTA), pursuant to 10 U.S.C. 2371(b) §815, with an eligible Consortium. The Government’s intent is to select an eligible Consortium to perform work at the Unclassified, Confidential, and/or Secret classification levels. An eligible Consortium, at its discretion, may hire a Consortium Management Firm (CMF) or other entity to support solicitation and award of the OTA, but the OTA will be executed between ERDC Contracting Office and the eligible Consortium.
The Government’s intent to seek a partner Consortium that includes industry, academic, non-profit, and for-profit entities in order to enhance our warfighters’ lethality, survivability and combat effectiveness through industrial and academic research, development, and technology demonstrations.
ERDC will host an industry day (TBD in March 2018) to capture interests from the industry and provide a forum to discuss this initiative. ERDC will publish the industry day information at a later date.
The Government, in conjunction with the Consortium(s), will perform coordinated research and development prototype projects designed to enhance mission effectiveness and to develop and mature technologies in civil and military engineering, geospatial sciences, water resources, and environmental sciences. These areas provides innovative technologies and capabilities to the warfighter, civilian agencies, and the Nation’s public good.
