(3) The production objective allows for non-competitive IROs and a prototype OT agreement, which has been successfully conceded in the competition and concluded successfully. This status provides that the potential of a successor OT is taken into account and informed of it; this is a necessary condition for the subsequent production of the OT. Therefore, the notice documents and the OT prototype agreement must indicate that it is possible to have a successor production authority, created by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) at the time of the passage of the National Aeronautics and Space Act of 1958. Subsequently, seven other specific agencies with OT powers were created: the Department of Defense (DOD), the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the Department of Transportation (DOT), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Transportation Security Administration, the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Energy. Other federal authorities may, in certain circumstances and with the authorization of the Management Board of Administration and Budget (OMB), have appealed to the authority ot. In an April 6 memo, Ellen Lord, Chief Acquisition Officer, changed the rules for issuing prototype contracts through other transaction authorities. There are many benefits to using an OTA, including reduced time and acquisition costs. There are other notable benefits, so the OTA is a unique and desirable tool for program and contract managers, including: An OT is a common term that refers to any type of transaction except a 10-member contract, grant or cooperation contract. C 2371.
Transactions within this authority can take many forms and are generally not required to comply with federal laws and regulations applicable to purchase contracts, grants and/or cooperation contracts. To the extent that a particular law or regulation is not bound by the nature of the instrument used (for example. B tax and property law), it would normally apply to an OT. For critics of the military`s procurement system, this is another example of the service`s poor record over the past 20 to 30 years of developing and introducing new weapons systems. While military leaders say they will accelerate the acquisition of the technology they desperately need to seize „great powers“ – it`s a black line that will certainly grab the attention of Congress.
