MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this project is to use a case-study approach to analyze the effectiveness and efficiency of other transaction (OT) agreements and the OT Consortium Model to acquire innovative renewable energy solutions. OTs are typically used for prototypes; however, the fiscal year (FY) 2016 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) expands the use of OT authority per statute 10 U.S.C. § 2371. Our research includes interviews with Defense Innovative Unit–Experimental personnel to highlight their experience with innovative businesses previously reluctant to pursue federal contracts. Additionally, our research leverages best practices from the Army Contracting Command–New Jersey, as well as industry partners, such as the Consortium for Energy, Environment, and Demilitarization and the National Security Technology Accelerator consortium, to compile recommendations for the Department of the Navy's acquisition strategy for renewable energy. The results of this case study include recommendations on the best use of OT agreements to drive innovation into the procurement of renewable energy solutions in accordance with Better Buying Power 3.0 initiatives.
