Information Analysis Centers (IAC) Program History
Information Analysis Centers (IAC) are government organizations regulated by DoD Instruction 3200.12; DoD Scientific Technical Information (STI) Program (STIP), dated 22 August 2013; and DoD Instruction 3200.14, Vol. 1, Principles and Operational Parameters of the DoD Scientific and Technical Information Program: General Processes, dated 12 March 2014 and DOD Manual 3200.4, Vol. 2, Principles and Operational Parameters for the DoD Scientific and Technical Information Program: Information and Analysis Centers (IAC), dated 5 January 2015.
Prior to 2008, the IAC program had 10 single award IDIQ contracts in 10 scope areas. These legacy contracts were AMMTIAC, CBRNIAC, CPIAC, DACS, IATAC, MSIAC, RIAC, SENSIAC, SURVIAC and WSTIAC. None of these contracts are available for new orders. To assist customers in navigating these changes, we have provided transition charts for each of the legacy IACs.
Current IAC Program Structure
In 2008, the IAC program announced changes to the contract structure in response to changes in legislation requiring enhanced competition. In coordination with ASD(R&E) and Air Force Acquisition, the IAC program management office drafted our new acquisition strategy. This resulted in three IDIQ Multiple Award Contracts (MAC) and three IAC Basic Centers of Operation (BCO) contracts. These changes have enhanced and expanded IAC capabilities, while achieving the efficiencies identified by the Secretary of Defense.
