Cooperative Research and Development Agreements (CRADAs) are used by federal laboratories to participate in collaborative efforts and partnerships with industry. Although not technically a research laboratory, the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) is a federally funded research university that has developed an extensive sponsored program of Technology Transfer (T2) with the private sector. Cooperative research and development is often a two-way instrument, where knowledgegenerated value can flow in both directions. This thesis research will assess that value, from the perspective of the federal partner, based on the NPS case as a specialized academic and research institution. The research and analysis performed within the context of this thesis contributes to goals established in the NPS "Technology Transfer Business Plan", focusing on the measurement of outcomes and benefits resulting from CRADAs, one of the preferred and most widely used mechanisms in technology transfer within the domain of DoD and particularly at the NPS. The perspective chosen, in the direction from the non-federal entity--generally industry--towards the federal partner, has not been researched and reported in the specialized literature as extensively as in the opposite direction.
