Abstract
Departtnent of Defense (DoD) is operating in an environment characterized by unknown adversaries, rapid technological change and a flat defense budget. To maintain technical superiority over its potential adversaries and do it affordably, DoD must further exploit the commercial industrial base. The use of "other transactions" provides one solution. This study was conducted to develop a decision model on when to use other transactions at DoD buying commands. The intent of this OT decision model is to provide the decision-maker with a framework that identifies key factors that should be considered in determining if an OT is appropriate. Depending on what the buying command is trying to achieve will determine which factors will be pertinent in the decision process. The researcher concludes that the business decision is central to the 0T decision. The other principal criteria in the 0T decision process are nature of the product, non-traditional defense firms, dual-use technology, cost-share arrangement and risk analysis.
