The topic of this thesis is the Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRDA), a method employed to transfer technology from Government owned, Government operated (GOGO) laboratories to private industry. The unique aspect of the CRDA is it provides an avenue for Government researchers to negotiate agreements with private industry without being ladened by numerous Government regulations, such as the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR), or its Department of Defense supplement, the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulations Supplement (DEFARS). The issue discussed during the research was whether a CRDA was a useful method to both expand the body of knowledge learned at Government laboratories to private industry and bring much needed funds to Government facilities and staff. The result of the study was an overall favorable opinion in the use of the CRDA, and a recommendation to expand future use of CRDA's in the environment of budget declines for Government agencies
