Contract Vehicles
Congress granted the U.S. Department of Commerce National Technical Information Service the Joint Venture Partnership (JVP) authority in 1988.

The JVP program is unique in the federal government and gives NTIS the ability to leverage leading, innovative companies to its government customers to solve complex data challenges. The JVP does not have to follow FAR requirements, thus providing clients with more flexibility and quicker time to contract.

JVP companies were chosen using a merit-based process and are industry leaders in data discovery, usability, accessibility, interoperability, analytics, security, and privacy.

With a simple Memorandum of Agreement or Inter-Agency Agreement, federal clients can engage NTIS and its partners to gain access to services. It is the goal of NTIS to provide clients with access to highly qualified firms to start solving their complex problems within 90 days of contacting NTIS.
