The Tradewind Solutions Marketplace serves as the DoD’s digital environment of post-competition, readily awardable, technology solutions.
Our NT StudioDX℠ solution, Operationalizing AI/ML In Dynamic Mission Environments, has satisfied Federal competition requirements (per 10 USC 4021 and 4022, FAR/DFARS Part 35, and Class Deviation 2022-O0007, implementing Section 803 of the FY2022 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), and is available for funding via Other Transaction Agreement, purchase order cooperative agreement, procurement contract, and other award mechanisms.
How does it work?
Once logged into the Tradewind Exchange, government customers can view awardable video solutions on the Tradewind Solutions Marketplace. Through the Marketplace, customer organizations may communicate directly with solution providers to get more information or request a demonstration of the solution.
When the government customer is ready to procure the solution, they may engage their local contracting support activity to define and document their requirement and acquisition approach. In the event that the government customer does not have a local contracting
support activity, they should reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to be connected to the Tradewind Acquisition Support team, who can
assist them through the procurement process.
A Note on Federated (or Distributed) Contracting
The Tradewind Solutions Marketplace has adopted an approach that permits an interested Government agency to procure a technology of interest from the Solutions Marketplace through the CDAO’s contract support activity, ACC-RI, or through their own contracting support activity. In the latter case, the rules and processes related to negotiation and award of solutions, as determined by the interested agency’s contracting activity will be used for the execution of the award.
It should be noted that contracting activities from the Services and other DoD Fourth Estate organizations may have specific requirements for award. Under this federated contracting approach, different contracting support activities may request additional information from selectees, such as a further description of the offering, pricing information, desired milestones, and intellectual property requirements and/or restrictions.
