  • RS3 Program Office History

RS3 Program Office History

  • The Rapid Response – Third Generation (R2-3G) Contract was originally managed by the Rapid Response (R2) Program Office. The R2 Program Office was originally chartered by the Deputy to the Commanding General, Communications-Electronics Command, to execute a unique, competitive and streamlined business process that would enable federal Government managers to acquire contractor-provided services. The program office provided a unique support service that aided all federal Government managers in rapidly executing their requirements as identified by their mission objectives. On 30 June 2015 the Director of the Logistics and Readiness Center, transferred responsibility of the R2-3G Contract to Army Contracting Command-Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD. On that date, the ACC-APG RS3 Program Office officially assumed responsibility of the R2-3G Contract. Both the program office and contracting office operations were merged to further streamline the acquisition process and to reduce operational costs.
  • The R2-3G Contract remains a viable contract vehicle. The RS3 Contract, when awarded, is intended to fulfill the void for various expiring Multiple Award Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contracts including the R2-3G Contract.
  • The transition to the RS3 Contract will be seamless to you and your organization. Your organization's requirement(s) will be awarded either under the R2-3G Contract or its successor, the RS3 Contract, depending upon your organization's requirement(s) award timeline.
