What is the CSIAC Community?
The CSIAC’s community of practice (CoP) is a feature that adds an additional element to the IAC’s traditional capabilities. In addition to providing access to a wealth of reports, resources and related STI, the CSIAC website now provides social networking functionality that allows practitioners to directly communicate with one another on a variety of topics relevant to the CSIAC technical domain.
The actual community is comprised of CSIAC staff members, team members, the wider-reaching network of subject matter experts (SMEs) and the CSIAC’s registered users. The site allows users to start new discussions, comment on specific documents and resources, and pose questions and/or opinions to an entire community of practitioners. The combination of technical content and social networking capabilities maximizes the CSIAC’s ability to disseminate information while overcoming the limitations of similar online communities.
To learn more, visit the Community Summary page.

What is a Core Analysis Task (CAT)?
Core Analysis Tasks (CATs) are separately funded work efforts above and beyond CSIAC products and services. The CAT program allows any DoD component to utilize the CSIAC as a contracting vehicle, allowing an organization to obtain specialized support for specific projects. CATs are very flexible, but are limited to a 12 month period of performance and a maximum budget of $1M per project. These projects, however, must be within the CSIAC’s technical domain (Cybersecurity, Information Assurance, Software Engineering, Modeling & Simulation, and Knowledge Management/Information Sharing).
How do I get answers to my technical questions?
Technical questions are referred to as “Inquiries” and can be submitted online, by email, phone or fax (Contact Info is listed in the footer). To submit an Inquiry online, select “Free Technical Inquiry” under “Services” in the CSIAC menu. After completing the online form, select the “Submit” button, which will send the form directly to an Inquiry Analyst. You will be contacted if additional information is needed to answer your request. Once complete, a response will be sent to the user. This can take up to 10 working days, though they are typically delivered sooner.
The CSIAC provides up to four FREE hours of research in response to a user inquiry. If the question requires more extensive research, users can begin to discuss a more extensive, funded effort known as a Core Analysis Task (CAT).
