The Strategic Institute for Innovation in Government Contracting focuses on education and training, and consulting services to improve efficiency and outcomes in government contracting; to field new, needed capabilities using alternative business approaches that increase collaboration between government, industry and other partners.
The Institute is well regarded for the pioneering work of its founder, and offers the intellectual capital to effectively utilize and implement existing and emerging contracting innovations – Other Transactions Authority (10 U.S.C. 2371, 2371b, 2373). In this capacity we serve as a resource for leadership, within government and business, who understand the need and desire improved efficiency, better outcomes, and reducing costs – faster, better, cheaper.
- Educate government and industry on existing contracting innovations that permit flexible business arrangements. Advocate for expanded use of Other Transactions authorities as the core of an alternative acquisition system.
- Download Rick Dunn’s sophisticated gestalt understanding of Other Transactions and related authorities into the zietgiest to give current leadership and practitioners within the DoD/gov and industry a robust foundation that they can build an alternative acquisition system made to rapidly field new technologies and capabilities.
“It must be remembered that there is nothing more difficult to plan, more doubtful of success, nor more dangerous to manage, than creation of a new system. For the initiator has the enmity of all who would profit by the preservation of the old institutions and merely lukewarm defenders in those who would gain by the new ones.” – Niccolo Machiavelli (1513)
