Non-traditional acquisition methods can encompass a host of acquisition methodologies. One example is Other Transactions (OT) and Teaming arrangements. It is critical that that a company fully understand the nuances of these methods and seek guidance as required.

OTs are not covered by the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) and are a highly flexible business tool, use of which requires the application of astute business acumen to ensure the smarter, more efficient acquisition of prototype systems for the DoD. OTs require a minimum of at least one non-traditional Defense Contractor participating to a significant extent in the project or a cost-sharing arrangement requiring that at least one-third of the cost of the OTs come from non-Federal sources (ex. Universities).

Teaming arrangements can take many forms. Simply put, a teaming agreement is an agreement to allow a prime contractor to form a DoD-sanctioned partnership with a subcontractor. This allows the subcontractor to enhance the relationship with the prime by utilizing the very best capabilities of the relationship.
