An Introduction to OTAs

In order to fully understand OTA government acquisition, it's important to know about Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) contracts. These contracts are a procurement mechanism that aims to buy services and property for direct use by government bodies or authorities. When the DoD or military services need to access R&F projects and prototypes from commercial sources, OTAs grant them more flexibility than traditional FAR documents allow.
