1. UA C designation is established by Congress and administered by DD &Ô.
2. There are 14 UA Cs, each sponsored by a DoD component and governed
by the DoD UA C Management Plan.
3. UA Cs perform research in specific mission areas. By design, no two UA Cs
have the same mission.
4. UA Cs are ͞not-for-profit, private sector organizations affiliated with, or
part of, universities or colleges that maintain essential research,
development and engineering capabilities needed by sponsoring DoD
components.͟
5. They maintain long-term, strategic relationships with sponsoring DoD
components in specific core areas and operate in the public interest, free
from real or perceived conflicts of interest.

#
# ! 

1. UA Cs are financed through long-term, non-competitive contracts


awarded by sponsoring DoD components for specific core work.
2. Operate under authority of 10 U.S.C. 2304(c)(3)(B) which allows DoD to
use non-competitive procedures in order to establish or maintain an
essential engineering, research, and/or development capability
3. eceives a minimum of $2M funding annually
4. Long-term relationship is characterized by:
å esponsiveness to evolving sponsor requirements
å Comprehensive knowledge of sponsor requirements and problems
å Broad access to information, including proprietary data
å Broad corporate knowledge
å Independence and objectivity
å Quick response capability
å Current operational experience
å Freedom from real and/or perceived conflicts of interest

1. In 2008, the DoD released a full and open competitive FP for a UA C on


systems engineering research.
2. Stevens led a team that brought together much of the best systems
engineering research talent in the nation to form a stable and enduring
collaboration to the benefit of the DoD.
3. Stevens was awarded the UA C (SÔ C) in September 2008.
4. UA C ͞status͟ is vested in Stevens through a 5 year renewable task-order
IDIQ contract with DoD.
5. Any federal entity can MIP funding to the SÔ C for work within the
defined core areas, subject to the agreement of the SÔ C sponsor.
6. Other federal agencies can establish their own sole source contract with
Stevens consistent with the defined core areas and the DoD UA C
Management Plan.
