DISA Call for White Papers


Technologies, and technology-based companies, advance so rapidly that the Department of Defense is finding it difficult to contractually engage, collaborate, and do business with high-tech companies. The traditional procurement process is too slow and based on regulations rather than negotiations. The Government's cost-based pricing system is cumbersome and expensive requiring unique accounting and auditing systems. The Government's standard approach to intellectual property can be overreaching and inflexible. The Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) is responding to this by exercising its authority under 10 U.S.C. 2371b, Other Transaction Agreements for Prototypes. DISA will periodically post Requests for White Papers inviting companies leading innovation to submit their solutions to the Agency's capability gaps, problem statements, or areas of interest.

There are no requests at this time.
