NDIA New England Breakfast Series: Leveraging DoD OTAs
April 8 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Please join NDIA New England and representatives from three National Consortiums for a live webinar as they share the roles and differentiators of the various OTA Consortiums with a focus on the New England industrial base. Important considerations such as security requirements, intellectual property considerations and other common myths will be discussed. This is a must attend event for companies interested in exploring an execution approach by leveraging OTA’s to meet prospective government client challenges. Representatives from these National Consortiums will explain how OTAs support innovation, collaboration and rapid and effective prototyping and make recommendations for the future. Acquisition representatives from the U.S. Army and Air Force will also be on hand. The event is free to attend.
OTs can help:
- Foster new relationships and practices involving traditional and NDCs, especially those that may not be interested in entering into FAR-based contracts with the Government
- Broaden the industrial base available to Government
- Support dual-use projects
- Encourage flexible, quicker, and cheaper project design and execution
- Leverage commercial industry investment in technology development and partner with industry to ensure DoD requirements are incorporated into future technologies and products
- Collaborate in innovative arrangements
