Army Research Office (ARO) Scientific Services Program (SSP)

DCS is a Subcontractor to Battelle Memorial Institute
Contract No:  W911NF-11-D-0001

The Scientific Services Program (SSP) is an accelerated contract mechanism that enables all federal government organizations to obtain specialized scientific/technical services in order to accomplish organizational goals and mission objectives specifically related to research and development.

Through the SSP, non-government scientists, engineers, analysts, consultants and subject matter experts can be quickly subcontracted to perform short-term, well-defined efforts when the expertise required is not available at the requesting government organization. Battelle Memorial Institute administers the SSP for ARO and is the prime contractor. Subcontracts are competitively issued to SSP task performers. Self-employed consultants, faculty, colleges & universities, small and large businesses may perform SSP tasks.
