Intelligent acquisition is the future of government business for fielding new capabilities.  Other Transactions authorities (OTs) can be a game-changer making way for alternative business and teaming approaches for R&D and prototyping – leading to production.  Call it “creative contracting” or “commercial-like” – this is business driven by goals, performed by smart people who really want to get things done!  Equipped with good business acumen and industry knowledge, OTs are a natural and make sense, but can be uncomfortable for those immersed in the current system. OTs provide greater flexibility to suit the project/goal, spur innovation by reducing barriers and increasing collaboration/outreach, and with more up-front focus on problem solving, better solutions are likely.

Congress has made pleas to the DoD to be courageous and bold in use of these authorities, even asking to develop a “preference”.  The warfighter needs capabilities faster, the taxpayer desires this and affordability too, untapped industry is ready for a better partner.  OTs are tailored to be the core of a parallel system to deliver these NOW!  What are you waiting for?
