Join NCMS staff as we discuss the value of and differences between the various contract vehicles available to small businesses for working with the DoD. NCMS will speak specifically about our successful Commercial Technologies for Maintenance Activities (CTMA) Program, a cooperative agreement, as well as our experience with OTAs and other contract vehicles.
Learn how your company may fit into two strategies being employed by the Air Force to manage resources and solve complex problems – Category Management and Other Transaction Authority (OTA). Knowledge of these practices can help companies position themselves to participate in AFMC procurements ranging from commercial items/services to cutting-edge research and development. Understand the Air Force’s approach to category management and how it is shaping the future of acquisition. Hear examples of the Department of Defense using OTA for research or prototype instruments to quickly and effectively develop partnerships between government, industry, academia, and non-profits, with an emphasis on highly innovative non-traditional and small business partners.
