Chord Type – This field is always generated by the system for Prototype. The prototype indicates the total dollar value of the expected contributions of non-governmental organizations to the agreement. If cost-sharing is the reason for using the OT authority, then this amount must be one-third of the total dollar. As of June 28, 2019, there will be another value in the drop-down list. Value added is production. This field is no longer generated by the system. 48 CFR § 212.001 defines a non-traditional defense contractor as an entity that does not currently provide service and has not performed a contract or subcontract for the Department of Defense that meets full coverage under 41 USC § 1502 and the provisions implementing that section for at least the one-year period preceding the collection of sources by the Department of Defense( DoD) for procurement or transaction. is subject to prescribed cost accounting standards. Contracting Office ID – The contracting office code must be a valid contracting office code in the contracting office/funding office lookup table of the FPDS-NG for the organization. If the default code is not appropriate, enter the code of the procuring entity that executed the transaction or is otherwise responsible for the transaction. (3) The production target allows a non-competitive EO to succeed a prototype OF an OT agreement, which was awarded in the competition and successfully concluded. This status requires that the potential of follow-up occupational therapy be assessed and reported in advance; this is a necessary prerequisite for a subsequent production OT. Therefore, the tender documents and the prototype OT agreement contain an indication that a subsequent production EO is possible.
Other transactions (TOs) are procurement instruments other than contracts, grants or cooperation agreements that allow flexible commercial arrangements to acquire research and development to support technological progress or rapidly develop a prototype. Most of the laws and regulations that govern federal treaties do not apply to TOs (e.B. However, the Federal Procurement Regulations (FAR) and the Competition in Contracts Act (CTA) apply and competition practices apply. TOs can be challenged in the U.S. Federal Claims Court, and the GAO has limited jurisdiction to review OT`s decisions. (c) REPORT REQUIRED. No later than December 31, 2018, and every December 31 thereafter until December 31, 2021, the Secretary of Defense must submit to the Congressional Defense Committees a report on the previous fiscal year on the Department`s use of other transaction powers. Each report summarizes and displays the data collected under paragraph (a) on the nature and extent of the Authority`s use, including a summary and details of the information – Funding Organization/Applicant ID – Enter the organization that funded the transaction. If this field is left blank, the system assumes that the branch ID entered by the customer also funds the measurement. The program or funding organization code must be included in the FPDS-NG FIPS 95 Agencies/Sub-Agencies research table.
A OT is a common term that refers to any type of transaction, except a contract, grant, or cooperation agreement authorized by 10 U.S.C. 2371. Transactions carried out under this organization can take many forms and generally do not have to comply with federal laws and regulations that apply to supply contracts, grants, and/or cooperation agreements. To the extent that a particular law or regulation is not bound by the type of instrument used (e.g. B, tax and land laws), it would generally apply to a OT. (a) COLLECTION AND STORAGE. Military division service acquisition officials collect data on the use of other transactions by their respective departments, and the Under Secretary of Defense for Research and Technology and the Under Secretary of Defense for Procurement and Maintenance collect data on any other use of other transactions by the Department of Defense. including use by defence authorities. The data is stored in such a way that the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Acquisition and other appropriate officials can access it at any time. While occupational therapists may be attractive because of the perceived speed in awarding occupational therapist agreements, the primary goal of occupational therapists is to encourage or hire non-traditional artists to meet government needs, NOT to quickly award agreements or avoid competitive processes from FAR. Research TOs require cost-sharing agreements between government and other parties, typically shared 50/50, although the ratio is negotiable based on resources, previous technology investment, commercial applicability to the state, performance risk, and the nature of a project.
Although the Competition in The Award of Contracts Act (CICA) is not applicable, competition should be pursued to the extent possible in order to create incentives at competitive and high-quality prices. Research TOs (10 U.S.C. §2371) apply to basic, applied and advanced research projects aimed at monitoring the development and application of dual-use technology. Unlike prototype TOs, research TOs do not include the power to move to follow-up production contracts or transactions. Prototype TOs must explicitly indicate the possibility of an OT or post-production contract in the Prototype OT prompt and in the Prototype OT agreement. Non-competitive tracking rewards are limited to participants in the OT prototype project and the following criteria must be met (source: USD A&S and USD R&E Memorandum, definitions and requirements for other transactions under Title 10, United States Code, Section 2371b): Agencies with different transaction powers and contract agents with the Agreement Agent Authority may execute TOs, but must establish processes for obtaining, evaluating, negotiating and awarding occupational therapy agreements. It is not recommended to use FAR processes to run OTs. There is no single established process for the execution of occupational therapists. Projects or programs that want to use TOs may want white papers, demonstrations, competitive prototyping, progressive selections, or any combination of these to develop a strategy to achieve the goals. (b) USE OF DATA.
– The Assistant Secretary of Defense for Procurement analyzes and uses the data collected under subsection a) to update policies and guidelines for the use of other transactions. . . .
