Department of Defense's "Other Transaction Authority"

The Department of Defense (DoD), Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition and Sustainment, recently replaced its Other Transactions Guide for Prototype Projects (Version 1.2, dated January 2017), with the Other Transactions Guide (Version 1.0, dated November 2018). The new guide is intended to provide guidance to both internal government stakeholders as well as government partners including industry and academia. The revised Other Transactions Guide addresses developments in other transaction agreements (OTAs) for prototype OTAs under 10 U.S.C. §2371b, and follow-on production OTAs under 10 U.S.C. §2371b(f), and also provides practical advice such as attempting to debunk “Common OT myths.” 

A copy of the Other Transactions Guide is available here.
