Contract Vehicles

MERC maintains numerous contract vehicles which allow our government customers convenient access paths to work with us. These contract vehicles relate primarily to the DoD and the federal government. However, MERC also provides support to other business entities including:

  • Commercial
  • Educational
  • Industrial
  • Non-profits

MERC does work for these other business entities to provide needed engineering services related directly to their requirements and products. Additionally, MERC can serve as a team member or sub-contractor to a prime contractor on DoD or other government agency contracts.

MERC has an expert on-site contracts administration team. Our Operations Directorate has all the needed resources to execute the required contracts and cost accounting and reporting activities in full compliance with Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) requirements.
