Federally-funded research and technology development collaborations represent great business opportunities for those in academia and industry, especially small and emerging companies that have not traditionally worked with the government in the past. The below lists include current and upcoming solicitations encompassing a wide range of programs and technology areas.

This information changes frequently. In most cases, consortia membership is required in order to access and respond to a solicitation. Also, some of the posted solicitations may require a precursor response prior to the submission deadline listed. Please refer to the individual program websites for official instructions and to ensure you are on the program mailing list for notifications.

You can find more details about these specific opportunities by clicking on the links to the appropriate program websites. We’ll help you understand the benefits of consortium membership, learn how your company can join these technology development collaborations and respond to solicitations for federally-funded research projects, individually or in teams. If you have questions about these solicitations or consortium operations in general, please contact either the corresponding program team or ATI at info@ati.org.

ATI consortium members have access to teaming/matchmaking and other resources at no cost. Email ati@govmates.com if you’d like to take advantage of these services. More information is available at govmates.com/ati/.

Award Process

Where the magic happens!

What sets our process apart from others is robust collaboration between government and solution providers before requirements are released. This meaningful engagement rarely happens on its own and taking a little extra time on the front end speeds the back-end award process, because the need has been well-defined and industry/academia have a strong understanding of the problem the government needs solved. ATI helps the government refine their requirements through this facilitated collaboration, specifically through synchronous engagements (concept briefs, matchmaking, one-on-one meetings, speed networking) and asynchronous collaboration portals (secure environments for sharing information).

Our government customers need the best ideas to choose from.

ATI supports the government to develop a streamlined, repeatable solicitation process, and then trains the members so they are prepared to respond. We advertise solicitation opportunities broadly, do targeted recruitment, and create an environment where the right teams come together to respond with their best ideas. ATI hosts secure portals for submissions and government evaluations.

ATI is a force multiplier for the acquisition community.

With the largest in-house team of contracting professionals – 50 strong – we speak the language of our non-traditionals, helping them navigate every step of the award process. We accelerate the award process by ensuring all required proposal information has been supplied, speed the government review process through an initial analysis, and negotiate when needed based on government parameters. Once awarded, ATI supports contractual and financial administration, so the government can focus on technology development.
