Abstract : The Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical Biological Defense (JPEO-CBD) is interested in how it can achieve a higher success rate of fielded items with their nine subordinate Program Management Offices. The Joint Science and Technology Office (JSTO) is the research, development, and technology organization that assesses all the new technologies that may eventually become fielded. The JPEO-CBD organization suspects that many of the research projects funded by JSTO are rarely fielded into actual Chemical Biological Defense (CBD) systems used by the end user. This study analyzes the results of a JPEO-CBD Questionnaire and compares those results to applicable JPEOCBD and JSTO technology statistics. The aim of this study is to analyze the quality of the agency relationships and how the relationships impact the probability of projects being fielded. This study shows a significant statistical relationship between the collaboration survey score of a JPM and its anticipated future transition to the warfighter. A similar result is true for the correlation between the historical percentage of technologies that transition to warfighter use and the JPM's collaboration survey score.
