The purpose of this project is to use a case-study approach to analyze the effectiveness and efficiency of other transaction OT agreements and the OT Consortium Model to acquire innovative renewable energy solutions. OTs are typically used for prototypes however, the fiscal year FY 2016National Defense Authorization Act NDAA expands the use of OT authority per statute 10 U.S.C. 2371. Our research includes interviews with Defense Innovative UnitExperimental personnel to highlight their experience with innovative businesses previously reluctant to pursue federal contracts.Additionally, our research leverages best practices from the Army Contracting CommandNew Jersey, as well as industry partners, such as the Consortium for Energy, Environment, and Demilitarization and the National Security Technology Accelerator consortium, to compile recommendations for the Department of the Navys acquisition strategy for renewable energy. The results of this case study include recommendations on the best use of OT agreements to drive innovation into the procurement of renewable energy solutions in accordance with Better Buying Power 3.0 initiatives.
