Test & Evaluation (T&E) for the Joint Artificial Intelligence Center (JAIC) Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA)

JAIC BPA Overview

As part of its mission to accelerate the delivery and adoption of AI to achieve mission impact at scale, the JAIC awarded a BPA to Noblis and its teammates, Calypso AI and i3, in February 2022 to streamline procurement and delivery of AI test and evaluation of tools for military services and associated stakeholders. Using the JAIC BPA, stakeholders may partner with the Noblis team for comprehensive review, analysis and testing to confirm that their AI requirements are correctly defined and that the software, model or system correctly—and ethically—implements required functionality and security.

Get AI You Can Trust

For the past several years, AI research and development has focused on improving the effectiveness of AI systems and assessing its potential impacts on everything from manufacturing to munitions. While significant breakthroughs have been realized and trust in AI has grown, it’s increasingly important to ensure that AI software and systems account for intended or unintended consequences. The JAIC T&E BPA provides easy access to Team Noblis and our experience to ensure stakeholders can trust AI to deliver accurate and actionable output without question.
