The U.S. Navy awarded the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) an $84.5 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (ID/IQ) cost-plus-fee contract for command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, and cyberspace technology research, the Defense Department said Thursday.

The contract relies on GTRI in its capacity as a Defense Department university affiliated research center. No funds were obligated at the time of award, but are set to be obligated as individual delivery orders are issued.


GTRI, which has worked with the military since the 1950s, has eight laboratories both on and off the main campus organized in three directorates: electronics, optics, and systems (EOS); information and cyber sciences (ICS); and sensors and intelligent systems (SIS).

The contract work is to occur in San Diego (90 percent) and Atlanta (10 percent) with an expected completion by Feb. 29, 2021.

The Navy said this was a sole-source acquisition that was not procured competitively in accordance with 10 U.S. Code 2304 (c)(3) and the Federal Acquisition Regulation Subpart 6.302-3. The contracting activity is the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command in San Diego.
