CNA has supported the U.S. defense and intelligence communities since our founding in 1942. CNA's Center for Naval Analyses is a Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) that provides research and analyses to help improve the efficiency and effectiveness of U.S. national defense and intelligence efforts. Our FFRDC contract vehicle is accessible to all of the Department of Defense, including the Military Services, the Defense Agencies and Field Activities, and the Combatant Commands. This contract vehicle is also available to the organizations and agencies within the U.S. Intelligence Community. Our contract is administered by the Office of Naval Research (ONR) and allows for task order awards via a DD Form 448 MIPR.
