Hallie Balkin - Other Transactions

Meet Hallie Balkin, Learning Director and Professor of Other Transactions (OT) at Defense Acquisition University (DAU) West Region located in San Diego, CA.

In this Quick Chat with Mohawk Matt, Hallie tells you everything you need to know about OTs, also known as Other Transaction Authorities (OTA).

OTs are not your standard procurement contracts, meaning they are not subject to federal laws and regulations that apply to government procurement contracts like Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) based contracts.

Rather OTs are a dynamic tool used to engage with industry and target non-traditional businesses. OTs provide significant benefits to the Department of Defense (DOD) and are an opportunity for non-traditional partners, such as small businesses, to work with the DOD.

Thanks for joining this Quick Chat and stay tuned for more from Hallie about OTs!

$10 MILLION in New Small Business Funding, and a chance to work with the Navy and Marine Corps.

Read More HERE: https://lnkd.in/dVHbNFa

This effort is being carried out by the DoN Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs—both located at Office of Naval Research.

The undertaking is critical to sustaining the research-and-development defense industrial base during this time.

Part of our #techbridges function is partnering with you, as small businesses, to bring you opportunities like this.

They serve as regional innovation hubs where warfare centers, government, academia and industry can team up and work together on technology research, evaluation and commercialization—as well as economic and workforce development.

NavalX Tech Bridges represent a partnership between NavalX, the Navy’s Technology Transfer Program Office, Office of Naval Research, Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP), Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR), Naval Sea Systems Command, NAVFAC, Marine Corps Systems Command (MCSC), Naval Information Warfare Systems Command (NAVWAR)

Have you heard of the Dennis White Award?

Meet this year’s recipient Alex Kniffin, a junior engineer at Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division (NSWCDD).

NAVWAR IWRP - Lisa Rosenbaum

Did you check out our last post on IWRP?? Today we are bringing you another awesome person working on this project!

Meet Lisa Rosenbaum an Agreements Officer at Naval Information Warfare Center Atlantic working on the Information Warfare Research Project (IWRP).

In this Quick Chat with Mohawk Matt, Lisa shares what the IWRP is and how it works as well as her role as an Agreements Officer in the effort.

The IWRP uses an alternative acquisition method called an Other Transaction Authority (OTA) to streamline the acquisition process. IWRP enables rapid research, development of prototypes, and access to innovative commercial solutions for defense requirements.

IWRP uses an OT-based consortium approach that allows government and industry to communicate more openly. It creates an alternative avenue for both traditional and non-traditional industry partners to move their technology ideas from concept to prototype in rapid succession.

Thanks for watching! To learn more about the IWRP check out their website:

Did you work with our NSIN X-Force Interns this summer?

Now that Summer ends, we are sad to lose our Summer interns from the National Security Innovation Network X-Force Cohort. They were an incredible asset to our teams and will be missed.

See some testimonials from their NavalX team leads...

Kelly DiCristina - "Basically she was awesome! Kelly was a fantastic addition to our team! Her ability to pivot and adapt was a boon to the team and she was a delight to work with. She is an awesome human, a dedicated and motivated worker, and I am already jealous of her future employer because of how lucky they'll be to have her on their team." - Lauren "Tink" Hanyok

Megan Hogan - "Megan set a new bar for all future interns, she was incredible. She brought a unique and creative insight to the team and designed new processes for workflow, podcast creation, and more. I would recommend anyone to hire her today! She is leaving a gap in our team." - Matt “Mohawk” Denny

Hannah Jarrett - "She was eager to learn, willing to take on challenges, and able to effectively communicate with the team. She was an asset to our team." - Diana Teel

Meet Vice Admiral Michael Moran the Principal Military Deputy to Sec. Jim "hondo" Geurts, the Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Research, Development, and Acquisition.

In this Quick Chat with Mohawk Matt, VADM Moran talks about his responsibilities as Principal Military Deputy and his current priorities, such as working more closely with OPNAV, improving the acquisition process, and getting the whole acquisition force engaged early on in critical discussions.

“Everybody doesn't know everything and so let's get as many people engaged early and often and help us really put plans in place, because in my experience, the better you have a plan in place upfront understood, resourced, technology understood, the better chance you have to succeed, and deliver for the fleet” – Vice Admiral Moran.

Thanks for watching and stay awesome!

NavalX's facility is open for business!



Recently, the Shipyard Infrastructure Optimization Program (SIOP), consists of NAVSEA PMS 555, Naval Facilities Command, and Commander Navy Installations Command leveraged NavalX's space and expertise to envision the future of the Naval Shipyard.



"If the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, the SIOP team just ran its first marathon and should be proud of their progress as they storm toward an even more capable maintenance and sustainment future in providing the Shipyard our Nation needs," said David Schiff, who helped facilitate SIOP exercises.
