									                      INTERAGENCY AGREEMENT
                     THE CLIENT/ORGANIZATION AND
                    DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE (DoD)

This Interagency Agreement between THE CLIENT/ORGANIZATION and the
Department of Defense (DoD)/ Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC), sets out
the conditions under which a project of joint interest to the THE
CLIENT/ORGANIZATION and DoD will be conducted. This agreement will enable the
THE CLIENT/ORGANIZATION to take advantage of the technological capabilities of
the DoD’s Information Analysis Center (IAC) pertaining to chemical and biological
defense. Specifically, this agreement will take advantage of the Chemical and Biological
Defense Information Analysis Center (CBRNIAC), located at the Edgewood Area of,
Aberdeen Proving Grounds, Maryland.


It is the policy of the United States to deter, defeat, and respond to all acts of terrorism
attacks on our territory and against our citizens or facilities wherever they occur.

The United States considers all such acts of terrorism as a potential threat to national
security as well as a criminal act, and will apply all appropriate means to combat it.
In doing so the United States shall purse vigorously all efforts to deter, preempt,
apprehend, and prosecute all individuals who perpetrate or plan to perpetrate such acts.

The President of the United States has declared in Presidential Decision Directive 39
that it is the responsibility of all Departments and Agency heads to ensure that their
personnel and facilities, and the people and facilities within their jurisdiction, are fully
protected against acts of terrorism.

To ensure compliance with Presidential Decision Directive 39, the THE
CLIENT/ORGANIZATION will utilized the CBRNIAC to assess the health and medical
effects to radiological, chemical, and biological exposures on the THE
CLIENT/ORGANIZATION Atlanta area personnel and facilities; conduct a
comprehensive review and analysis of security protection programs, including personnel
security information security; and implement security awareness training for radiological,
chemical and biological exposures; develop and maintain contingency SOP’s that clearly
define security emergency response protocols. In addition, as required, the CBRNIAC
will provide technical and scientific support to the various Centers, Institutes, and Offices
that comprise the THE CLIENT/ORGANIZATION as it pertains to activities relating to
public health, toxicology, emergency operations, laboratory, and medical issues involving
chemical and biological terrorism.
The CBRNIAC has provided similar support to DoD and other government agencies
(OGAs), including state and local government agencies, as well as first responders.


DTIC provides technical and information support to DoD and OGA components to
minimize the unnecessary expenditure of resources on the performance or research,
development, test, engineering, and other activities already being undertaken within the
DoD and its components. Each DoD IAC undertakes basic IAC functions and provides
scientific and technical information products and services from funds provided by DTIC
and other DoD sources. Contracted and some Government operated IACs also undertake
additional Technical Area Tasks for all DoD and OGA components. Technical Area
Tasks are tasks that are analytical and technical in nature which are funded by DoD
components, other U.S. Government agencies, DTIC, or other approved users. These
tasks must be relevant to the specific IAC’s primary field of interest and are separately
funded by the requiring agency.

The establishment of DoD IAC’s by DoD charter was intended to consolidate DoD
resources to support all DoD scientific and technical information analysis requirements in
a discipline or mission area under one umbrella organization. Use of DTIC resources
and/or chartered DoD IAC by the THE CLIENT/ORGANIZATION to meet needs for
scientific and technical information collection and analysis avoid the establishment of
additional requirements and procurements. Use of these DoD resources thereby reduces
opportunities to duplicate unnecessary DoD and the THE CLIENT/ORGANIZATION
initiatives and to require additional funds to cover the information repository facilities
and analysis activities for either DoD or the THE CLIENT/ORGANIZATION.

ARTICLE III - Statement of Work

       Part I - Applicability

This agreement applies to THE CLIENT/ORGANIZATION and the DoD CBRNIAC.

be undertaken to assist THE CLIENT/ORGANIZATION in the performance of their
assigned functions with respect to the research, development, test, evaluation, training,
support, operations, and employment of THE CLIENT/ORGANIZATION programs, and
their integration into U.S. Government or commercial chemical biological activities,

notification of the CBRNIAC contractor the DoD Contracting Officer shall notify the
THE CLIENT/ORGANIZATION Contracting Officer in writing whenever it has reason
to believe that the costs it expects to incur in the next 60 working days, when added to all
costs previously incurred, will exceed 75 percent of the funds obligated by THE
CLIENT/ORGANIZATION. This notice shall state the estimated amount of additional
funds required to continue performance for the period specified in the current task
