Intrepid Wins Prime Award on $46B Eglin Wide Agile Acquisition Contract
Intrepid was recently selected as a Prime Contractor on the Eglin Wide Agile Acquisition Contract (EWAAC) by the U.S. Air Force. The contract is a multi-award, Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) acquisition vehicle focused on digital acquisitions, agile processes, open system architecture, and enterprise analytics.
The EWAAC has a ceiling of up to $46 billion and a 10-year period of performance.
Under the contract, Intrepid will rapidly develop technologies of novel weapons capabilities; apply unique solutions and innovative ideas; and characterize new technologies and system concepts that provide evolutionary, revolutionary, and disruptive capabilities for the United States Air Force through weapons systems requirements development, studies, and demonstrations.
Additionally, Intrepid will actively support the contract’s primary objective to provide rapid response applicable to all areas and lifecycle phases of weapons development to include weapons concepts, concept development, concept demonstrations, weapons system procurement, production, fielding, operations, and sustainment to quickly meet current and future weapons system requirements.
This new innovative contracting method was established by the Air Force Lifecycle Management Center’s Armament Directorate and allows the entire Eglin armament enterprise to use EWAAC to reduce the time it takes to obtain solutions to emerging capability gaps or support to any armament-related activity.
