On November 1, 2017 Army’s Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical and Biological Defense (JPO-CBD) chose VPI Technology Group to be included in the US Department of Defense (DOD) Joint Enterprise-Research, Development, Acquisition, and Production/Procurement (JE-RDAP) contract award vehicle.
The Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract allocates $8.2 billion for Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosive (CBRNE) research and development projects.

Olsen will attend the start of contract meeting December 5, 2017 in Aberdeen, Maryland.
