On 3 May, in accordance with 10 U.S. Code § 2371b, the Army Contracting Command – Orlando has awarded an Other Transaction Agreement (OTA) via the Training and Readiness Accelerator (TReX) for the Experimental Validation Capabilities Prototype Project (EVCAPP).

A Request for Solutions for these efforts was issued through TReX on 13 November 2020, which resulted in the submittal of five responses for EVCAPP. The prototype project was awarded to GAN Corporation located in Huntsville, AL. The total value of this prototype project, if all options are exercised, is $82,789,191.30.

The goal of the EVCAPP is to enable RTC to go from test planning to test report with unprecedented speed and agility resulting in significant enterprise wide increases to the quality of test and assessment information and data presented to key decision makers. To meet this goal, EVCAPP seeks to improve RTC’s test and assessment methodologies and capabilities by demonstrating more agile, adaptable, and resilient test and assessment technologies, methodologies, processes, and capabilities that reduce test and reporting timelines and increase the availability of decision quality information and data to Army decision makers.

Upon successful completion of this prototype effort, the Government anticipates that a follow-on production effort may be awarded via either contract or transaction, without the use of competitive procedures if the participants in this transaction successfully complete the prototype project as awarded. The Government defines success as when the prototypes have been validated and is accepted by the Government. Further, the government reserves the right to determine part or all of the prototype project is successfully completed if the vendor shows a particularly favorable or unexpected result justifying the transition to production.
