SCOPE

APPROVED FOR PUBLIC RELEASE

Provide the Army and other Joint Warfighter partners with a quick-reaction contracting
vehicle to enable & accelerate the realization of new Army Modernization transformational
OVERMATCH CAPABILITIES through rapid RDT&E prototyping, experimentation, testing,
analytics, and technology insertion/integration – all aspects of operationalizing science
through disruptive innovation for dominant Multi-Domain Operations (MDO) and Joint All-
Domain Operations (JADO) capabilities:

– Outcomes to be utilized by AFC for recommendation(s) on further technology investment decisions for

realization of both near-term and longer-term overmatch capabilities.

– Outcomes may include rapid advanced-technology insertion for POR’s and fielded systems (for rapid

warfighter feedback / spiral development)

– Outcomes may be utilized to provide effective solutions to counteract and defeat asymmetrical,

adaptable enemy overmatch threats when present – advanced-technology-based solutions that can
also be employed by small units, expeditionary forces, special operations forces and other irregular
warfare operators.

AMP IDIQ PRIME CONTRACTOR SELECTION CRITERIA

APPROVED FOR PUBLIC RELEASE

General Technical Requirements & Selection Criteria:

– Demonstrated understanding of the AMP PWS requirements

– Demonstrated advanced capabilities in key mission and technical areas

– Demonstrated capability to meet quick-reaction project contracting needs that may span a wide range
of specialized services from 6.1 through 6.7 TRLs, in some cases within the same task order contract.

– Demonstrated capability to provide specialized services within a MDO / JADO environment.

– Goal is to select a reasonable number of prime contractors based on the best overall value proposals
that are determined to be the most beneficial to the Government in meeting the goals of the AMP IDIQ
contracting vehicle.

 Specialized Services are defined as the capacity to:

1) Provide rapid RDT&E prototyping, experimentation, testing, analytics, and technology insertion/integration across

a wide range of technology readiness levels (TRLs) / maturity levels,

2) Provide the services in 1) within the context of real-world, battle-ready OCONUS environments, and

3) Provide these services with demonstrated experience in convergent MDO & JADO environments. These
