Submission Guidelines for the TARDEC Ground Vehicle Gateway

The TARDEC Ground Vehicle Gateway is provided as a tool for you to submit written communications to TARDEC. It is intended to be primarily used for military ground vehicle research and development activities, including combat, tactical, and non-tactical vehicles, and ancillary systems.

TARDEC is a research and development organization. We use the Army Contracting Command - Warren to purchase commercial products and services. If you are communicating regarding a commercial product or service please check FedBizOpps at www.fbo.gov to view solicitations for which your product or service may apply. Also contact your local Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) (http://www.aptac-us.org) to see if they can assist you with obtaining a contract with the Department of Defense.

TARDEC sorts written communications or submissions into four categories:
 General Questions -- will be answered by TARDEC or sent to the appropriate organization to be answered
 Commercial of-the-shelf (COTS) product information -- is routed to the appropriate technical area for awareness and archive
 Requests to collaborate with TARDEC on one of the specific business mechanisms listed in the TARDEC website such as: Technical Service Agreements (TSA), Cooperative Research and Development Agreements (CRADA), Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) will be evaluated for suitability
 Submissions resulting from your review of the TARDEC Strategy, Capabilities and Opportunities found on the TARDEC Web Site will be evaluated by Subject Matter Experts in the specific technical area.
