iCatalog Home WSC 029 OTA Simulation Workshop
(Last Modified:20-Nov-2020)


Highly interactive opportunity to practice OTA methods. Each team is given a robust scenario consisting of various stakeholders demands (e.g. due to program office challenges, contract team dynamics, requirements developers, engineers, finance, legal, intellectual property attorney, etc.). Next, each team engages in hands-on simulations, working through the requirement from “inception” to “award.” Common OT challenges surface in the simulation. The teams must work together to overcome likely roadblocks, yielding lessons learned that could be easily applied to future applications.
  • Obtain working-level application of OTA.
  • Recognize and explain the unique aspects relating to the different types of Other Transactions (OTS): research, prototype, and production.
  • Identify key characteristics of a requirement that would determine which type of OT is more appropriate.
  • Develop strategies to overcome common OTA challenges and reduce risk.
  • Target Attendees
    Contracting/Agreements officers; contract administrators; legal, program representatives, finance, and other officials, including industry representatives.
