The Omnibus Program is intended to provide TARDEC with additional resources to augment its in-house capability across the entire product acquisition lifecycle, according to Concurrent Technologies. The CTC Team consists of CTC and 29 other companies including large businesses, small businesses, small disadvantaged businesses, not-for-profits, and universities. This contract provides the CTC Team with the opportunity to bid on Cost Plus Fixed Fee and Firm Fixed Price orders relating to TARDEC's overall mission as the U.S. Government's primary research and development activity for military ground vehicle systems.
TARDEC, part of the U.S. Army Research, Development and Engineering Command, or RDECOM, is headquartered at the Detroit Arsenal, Warren, Mich. It is the Department of Defense's full life cycle engineering support provider for all manned and unmanned ground vehicle systems. TARDEC's mission includes working with Life Cycle Management Command and Training and Doctrine Command stakeholders to maintain a strong advanced science and technology base in order to address the warfighters' needs with innovative capabilities.
"This important program underscores our commitment to developing and delivering innovative solutions to U.S. War Fighters,” said Edward J. Sheehan, Jr., CTC's president and CEO. “In addition, it will enable us to grow our capabilities, staff, and supplier base in Detroit. We anticipate growing our business not only in Detroit but also in Johnstown, Pennsylvania and other CTC locations. Along with our teammates, we look forward to working closely with TARDEC and providing the resources needed to augment their existing capabilities."
