Using OTAs as an Acquisition Mechanism in Defense Contracts: Benefits and Pitfalls

Join the DSLBD PTAC team tomorrow, Tuesday, May 18th, from 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM, for the workshop, "Using OTAs as an Acquisition Mechanism in Defense Contracts: Benefits and Pitfalls."

Description:

The Department of Defense spending through other transaction agreements (OTA) totaled $16.3 billion in 2020—an $8.9 billion increase from 2019. With OTA use on the rise, how can government contractors get involved in these non-standard procurements—and should they?

Join PilieroMazza’s Jackie Unger as she covers the benefits and pitfalls of OTAs for government contractors.

Discussion topics will include:

Differences between OTAs and traditional contracts
How to find and compete for OTAs
The future of OTAs in government contracting
