This thesis explores the various practices and programs available throughout DoD to leverage resources and technology with industry. The collaborative methods of dual use technology and technology transfer and the contractual instruments that enable these methods and programs are discussed and evaluated where sufficient evidence permits. The most important programs are the Dual Use Science and Technology (DUSandT), Commercial Operations and Support Savings Initiatives (COSSI), Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR), Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA), and Technology Transfer. Innovation and collaboration between public and private industries are explored throughout the thesis with a focus on research and development. There is a lack of data needed to assess the effectiveness of these practices and programs.
