U.S. Army Medical Test and Evaluation Activity
The USAMTEAC is the only independent operational test and evaluation agency of medical and medical-related materiel and information technology products in support of the Army and DoD acquisition process. The leadership and test officers of the USAMTEAC are Acquisition Corps members who are certified experts in managing and conducting test and evaluation for program managers and materiel developers. This team must certify that the systems are ready for full-rate production and deployment.
How the USAMTEAC supports the Army Medical Department/Military Health System:
In partnership with the U.S. Army Test and Evaluation Command and Director of Operational Test and Evaluation, USAMTEAC designs and conducts independent operational test and evaluation in strict accord with the laws, DoD directives, and Army policies for medical materiel developed and acquired by the AMEDD and MHS. In doing so, USAMTEAC provides:
· Answers to questions of operational effectiveness, suitability, and survivability.
· Documentation of system performance measured against requirements.
· Risk management for decision makers.
· Conscience of the acquisition system.
