Homeland Defense and Security Technical Area Task Contract

hdiacHomeland Defense and Security technical area task contract (HDTAT) is a multiple award indefinite delivery indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract that supports of the following technical areas:

    • Homeland security and defense
    • Critical infrastructure protection
    • Weapons of mass destruction
    • Chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear (CBRN) defense
    • Biometrics
    • Medical
    • Cultural studies
    • Alternative energy


The HDTAT contract is a follow-on to a predecessor legacy contract: Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear Defense Information Analysis Center (CBRNIAC) contract, which covered the scope areas of homeland security & defense, critical infrastructure protection, weapons of mass destruction, and CBRN defense. Four new scope areas have been added including biometrics, medical, cultural studies, and alternative energy to complete the HDTAT contract.

The purpose of the HDTAT contract is to leverage the best expertise from industry, other government agencies, and academia to solve the government’s toughest scientific and technical problems. The IACs serve as a ready tool for strategic, operational and tactical organizations within DoD and the broader community. The IACs build a community of subject matter experts (SMEs) and provide critical scientific and technical information (STI) for DoD, enabling it to avoid the creation of duplicate holdings of STI, as well as avoid duplication in analytical capabilities in various R&D support components.

The IACs provide tactical relevance through direct connection to the Warfighter, and strategic value through long term trend analysis and recommendations. Products, such as state-of-the-art reports (SOARs), provide a detailed analysis of critical challenges, while technical inquiry services offer a direct connection to a vast network of subject matter experts from across government, industry and academia.

The IACs also work directly with customers on core analysis tasks (CAT) and technical area tasks (TAT), both of which yield new STI. They collect, maintain and develop analytical tools and techniques including databases, models and simulations and provide research and analysis services to customers with diverse, complex, and challenging requirements.
