Strategic Institute for Innovation in Government Contracting is focused on education and consulting services to improve government and industry thinking for advancing science, technology, and most importantly new capability using Other Transactions (OTs) authorities. OTs and related authorities provide the core of an acquisition alternative for capability development, outside of the highly regulated purchasing system, specifically for prototype projects through production and lifecycle.
The Institute is well regarded for the pioneering work of its founder, and offers the intellectual capital to effectively utilize and implement existing and emerging contracting innovations – Other Transactions authorities (10 U.S.C. 2371b, 2371, 2373, 2374a). In this capacity we serve as a resource for leadership, within government and business, who understand the need for improved efficiency, better outcomes, and reducing costs – faster, better, cheaper.
“It must be remembered that there is nothing more difficult to plan, more doubtful of success, nor more dangerous to manage, than creation of a new system. For the initiator has the enmity of all who would profit by the preservation of the old institutions and merely lukewarm defenders in those who would gain by the new ones.” – Niccolo Machiavelli (1513)
