dc.description.abstractThis research reviews the intellectual property rights in software acquired by the Department of Defense (DoD). The intent of the study is to analyze the effectiveness of the DoD's policy concerning noncommercial software intellectual property rights. Surveys were developed to assess the current policy. Contracting officials in the military and commercial sector were the respondents to the interviews. The conclusions based on this research are that contracting officers do not fully understand the myriad of intellectual property rights management tools at their disposal. The research also uncovered the perception that DoD's overall policy in this area is fragmented and confusing. Recommendations include: (1) acquisition and contracting students of Federal acquisition programs should receive instruction in ADP or FIP (Federal Information Processing) acquisition, (2) acquisition and contracting students of Federal acquisition programs should receive increased class sessions on intellectual property rights, (3) DoD contracting personnel should increase usage of 'specifically negotiated license rights' in software contracts, and (4) DoD contracting personnel should strengthen software contract solicitations.en_US
