In the day-to-day office arena, routines are regularly impacted with requests for nominations for many different development programs. A Program Manager may consider these calls and requests for nominations as an additional burden on their already taxed and stretched thin schedule of time and resources. Even so, these programs play an integral part in reducing and sharing risks, leveraging scarce resources from several sources, and potentially leading to development and delivery of new andor improved capabilities to the war fighters faster and at less total ownership cost TOC for them and the Nation. This paper will present an OSD architectural overview of how the Office of Technology Transition programs fit together and assist not only the war fighter, but our Services Program Managers and the Services, along with our industrial and commercial partners. These programs collectively reduce and restructure risks, leverage resources and ideas from multiple sources, and are all aimed at delivery of increased capabilities and reduced costs to the number one customer, the front line war fighters. More importantly, these programs are additional avenues and paths for development and introduction of new technologies, even if most of them are NOT directly identified within specific budget lines and program elements. These programs are the door openers for getting to that point of making contributions to the war fighters, while at the same time allowing our scientists and engineers to perform in their areas of expertise.
