Contract Vehicles

GTRI usually works on a cost-reimbursable basis, but we also use other contracting vehicles. The Georgia Tech Applied Research Corporation provides our contracting, grant and research administration services.

GTRI is a University Affiliated Research Center (UARC)

In 1995, GTRI was designated a University Affiliated Research Center (UARC) by the Director of Defense Research and Engineering (DDR&E), Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD). UARC's are organizations affiliated with universities or colleges that are established by the Department of Defense (DoD) to maintain essential research, development and engineering "core" capabilities; maintain long-term strategic relationships with their DoD sponsors; and operate in the public interest, free from real or perceived conflicts of interest.

GTRI’s core competencies under the UARC focus primarily with offensive & defensive missile weapon systems and associated and supporting functional technologies.

UARC's receive sole source funding (UARC contracts) from DoD under the authority of 10 U.S.C. Section 2304(c)(3)(B) in order to establish or maintain an essential engineering, research, and/or development capability. GTRI UARC DoD primary sponsor is the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Research, Development and Engineering Center (AMRDEC) located at Redstone Arsenal, Alabama.

SENSIAC is one of the newest information analysis centers serving the military sensing community, including the U.S. Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security and other government organizations. The Center provides information on all sensing-based technologies related to defense activities, including:

  • Infrared
  • Laser
  • Radar
  • Acoustic
  • Electro-Optical
  • Aroma
  • Chemical

The Center makes the sensing-related jobs of other organizations easier, faster, more efficient and less costly. In addition to being a clearinghouse for information, SENSIAC conducts research projects and educational programs. It draws upon experts across Georgia Tech and seven other universities.

A SENSIAC team can work on problems, support programs, develop equipment and perform nearly any task from basic research to field training. One of the ways to engage SENSIAC’s services is through an expedited contracting process called Technical Area Tasks. TAT provides an unlimited government and industry-wide cost reimbursable task ordering contract.

SeaPort Enhanced (SeaPort-e) is a contracting vehicle that allows the Naval Sea Systems Command to effectively procure professional support services through a Web-based portal. The basic goal of SeaPort-e is to reduce cost and increase efficiency through SeaPort-e task orders, especially with respect to high-volume, repetitive tasks. The current list of U.S. Navy commands that can utilize the SeaPort-e vehicle are the:

  • Naval Sea Systems Command
  • Naval Air Systems Command
  • Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command
  • Naval Supply Systems Command
  • Military Sealift Command
  • Naval Facilities Command
  • Strategic Systems Program
  • United States Marine Corps

A prime contract award (N00178-06-R-4752) was given to GTRI/GTARC in June 2006 covering the period of performance in the table below.

Period of Performance
Base Year June 2006 to April 2009
Option Award Term 1 April 2009 to April 2014
Option Award Term 2 April 2014 to April 2006

GTRI has been awarded the "Option Award Term 1" for the SeaPort-e Contract.

On 12/31/2009 the task ordering contract, Independent Assesment and Validation Support for Government Solution-Based Projects - N00178-06-D-4752-FG01, was awarded to GTRI.

On 4/11/2010 the first task order, N00178-06-D-4752-FG0101, was awarded to GTRI.

GSA Schedule for Professional Engineering Services

GTRI’s General Services Administration Schedule (GSA Schedule) offers the U.S. federal government a streamlined, cost-effective way to acquire our professional engineering services and solutions. A GSA Schedule is an unfunded, five-year contract that lists the prices the federal government has agreed to pay to an organization for its products or services. GSA Schedules are the preferred contracting vehicles for federal government buyers. These contracts save federal government buyers time and money when they purchase products and services.

The Professional Engineering Services (PES) schedule provides a streamlined approach for federal agencies to access qualified firms in a multitude of engineering disciplines. This multiple award schedule grants agencies direct access to the commercial experts who can address the needs of the federal engineering community.

There are six special item numbers (SINs) that comprise the distinct phases of an engineering project. These SINs cover the major disciplines of:

  • Mechanical
  • Electrical
  • Chemical
  • Components of civil engineering

They also cover numerous sub-disciplines, such as:

  • Aerospace
  • Nuclear
  • Bioengineering
  • Marine architecture

To learn more about the PES schedule, visit the PES section of the GSA Web site.
