Task Orders (TOs)

TOs are externally funded analysis services that extend beyond the free 4-hour technical inquiry research service. They come in two categories, depending on the size of the work efforts:  task orders and IAC multiple award contract (MAC) task orders.

Task Orders

TOs are designed to support research and development studies and analyses or prototyping requirements. They are intended to be work efforts completed in 12 months or less for less than $1M.

IAC MAC Task Orders

IAC MAC TOs support high-dollar research and development projects that provide studies, complex analysis, engineering, and technical services. They are intended to be work efforts with up to a 5-year period of performance and no ceiling minimum or maximum.

Notable Task Orders

Notable TOs are summaries of the most recent and impactful works done by CSIAC.
