Key Contract Benefits

  • Best-value solutions
  • On-ramping and off-ramping capabilities
  • No restrictive labor categories
  • Flexibility, contract type, and evaluation criteria determined by customer requirements
  • Extensive ordering period
  • Streamlined processes and procedures that meet full compliance with all acquisition regulations and requirements
  • Support for worldwide government C4ISR requirements
  • Low-administrative contract service rates to customers (program office processes facilitate minimal support cost structure)
  • Pre-award through post-award support from RS3 program office
  • Quarterly prime contractor meetings to ensure all opportunities and concerns are discussed in an open forum
  • Periodic program management reviews

As the previous contract vehicles — such as the Rapid Response Third Generation (R2-3G) contract held by NCI — close and reach their legal spending level limit, RS3 expands the execution timeframe, revalidates capabilities and performance by vetting the community of contract companies, and resets size and socioeconomic designation demarcations.
