cASM is an award winning DoD Acquisition Category (ACAT) III program. It is a web-based software application built to create pre-contract award requirements documents and forms compiled in a digital package for transmission to a contract writing system. Users input data once into cASM and re-used in multiple documents and forms through an interface similar to easy to use commercial tax preparation software. cASM selects the set of Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) and DFARS required documents and forms based on the type of acquisition, estimated dollar amount and the competitive nature of the acquisition. cASM employs a customizable workflow for reviews and approvals prior to execution by the Contingency Contracting Officer, thus reducing coordination time and potentially hazardous travel in contingency locations around the world.
Contingency contracting planners can develop and store joint procurement packages comprised of individual service component’s plan involved in conjunction with the respective operational plan. The plan can then be selected and converted into a requirements package(s) in minimal time and quickly procured, thus reducing initial deployment timelines.
cASM will decrease the time to plan, build and approve procurement requirements packages in austere environments resulting in faster delivery of life support products and services to the warfighter in any contingency.
TQS is the original developer and current sustainer of cASM for the DoD under a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) IDIQ contract.
