Looking for help developing contract language to incorporate Digital Product Support into your program? While still very much a work in progress, the military departments, materiel commands, and individual programs are blazing trails to assist programs in contracting for Digital Product Support, including for development of new (“born digital”) systems, modifications to legacy systems, and legacy system support.

For additional guidance on contracting for data with specific emphasis on Intellectual Property (IP) considerations, encourage you to view the recording (coming soon) of our recent Logistics LIVE “Contracting Data Rights” webinar, featuring Ms Vicki Allums and Colonel Christopher Monsey.
