human resources management, risk management, and marketing, as well as the traditional public procurement areas such as contracting, program/project management, logistics, test and evaluation and systems engineering management.

The ARP is interested in innovative proposals that will provide unclassified and non-proprietary findings suitable for publication in open scholarly literature.

Studies of government processes, systems, or policies should also expand the body of knowledge and theory of processes, systems, or policies outside the government.

The following research areas are of special interest:
Leading-edge techniques in data collection, management, visual analytics and decision-making; Robust risk modeling techniques; Performance metrics and methodologies; Collaboration and cross-functional teams; and, Model-Based Acquisition.

Offerors bear prime responsibility for the design, management, direction and conduct of research.

Researchers should exercise judgment and original thought toward attaining the goals within broad parameters of the research areas proposed and the resources provided.

Offerors are encouraged to be creative in the selection of the technical and management processes and approaches and consider the greatest and broadest impact possible.

Proposals for workshops, conferences, and symposia, or for acquisition of technical, engineering, advisory and assistance, and other types of support services for the Government will not be considered.
