The U.S. Army has awarded the TACOM Strategic Service Solutions Family of
Contracts, or TS3 FoC,
that are part of an effort to streamline how the Tank Automotive and
Armament Command buys services, supports research and development and
maintains its equipment.
The R&D contract will be used by the
government to buy services associated with research and
development, testing and evaluation (RDT&E) and includes
support to lab services. The TS3 R&D contract also provides support to the Tank Automotive Research and Development Command (TARDEC); Program Executive Office (PEO) Combat Support & Combat Service Support (PEO CS&CSS); PEO Ground Combat Systems (PEO GCS); and System of Systems Engineering & Integration (SoSE&I) with Full Life Cycle engineering support for all manned and unmanned ground vehicle systems. On a case-by-case basis, the TS3 R&D contract may be utilized for other requiring activities.
