COE Technical Training and Human Performance

FAA CENTER OF EXCELLENCE FOR TECHNICAL TRAINING AND HUMAN PERFORMANCE Overview The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) intends to establish a Center of Excellence (COE) for Technical Training and Human Performance (TTHP) in 201 6. The goal of this endeavor is to create a cost sharing relationship

between academia, industry and government that will focus on areas of primary interest to the FAA and the aviation community as a whole.

Our purpose is to forge a union of public sector, private sector and academic institutions to create a world-class consortium that will identify solutions for existing and anticipated technical training and related issues.

The FAA expects the COE to perform basic and applied research, education and training tasks through a variety of analyses, development, and prototyping activities.

To this end, the FAA Center of Excellence Program Office is soliciting proposals from accredited institutions of higher education with their partners and affiliates.

The FAA intends to initially enter into cooperative agreements with core university members, and will thereafter award matching grants to establish the COE without further competition.

The Office of Primary Interest (OPI) and sponsor of the COE for TTHP is the FAA Air Traffic Organization, Technical Training Directorate, AJI- 2. The FAA OPI intends to support this COE over the next five years at a base funding level of $1 M each year.

Without further competition, the FAA may exercise the option to renew the initial COE cooperative agreement for an additional five years following a successful evaluation which will be conducted prior to expiration of Phase I activities.

Other government organizations and private companies have indicated an interest in working with the FAA and the selected COE team, and may contribute additional funds and other resources as co-sponsors of this Center.

As a result of this competitive process, the FAA also plans to award an Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract to the selected COE team members.

Thereafter, the COE team will be positioned to receive delivery order tasks on a cost reimbursement, cost sharing, and/or fixed-price basis for the benefit of the FAA, as a result of this competitive process.

Lead COE universities must declare their intention to submit a proposal and identify the core university team and affiliate members by January 15, 201 6.
