Please see new Class Deviation under the "Legislation, Regulation, and Policy" tab regarding the DFARS Clause for Technical Data and Computer Software under the SBIR Program (252.227-7018). This class deviation implements the Small Business Administration’s Policy Directive published in the Federal Register on April 2, 2019 (84 FR 12794). The Policy Directive extends the period of time during which the Government must protect technical data and computer software developed or generated under SBIR contracts against unauthorized use and disclosure. This protection period begins at contract award and ends 20 years after contract award. The Policy Directive also provides for the Government to use, and to authorize others to use on its behalf, the data for Government purposes.
DAU hosted a Workshop on Other Transactions (OTs) on Wednesday, August 5th. Topics discussed included "Negotiating Terms" such as Intellectual Property. See the Emerging Technology webpage to access the slides from the event.
An article titled "A Marriage Made in Heaven"? Other Transaction Authority Agreements and Data Rights, by Hallie Tremaine Balkin and Howard Harris, will be published in the September-October 2020 issue of Defense Acquisition. Click on the Emerging Technology webpage for a copy of the article.
This online workshop will address the nuances of acquiring rights to technologies created under Other Transaction Agreements (OTAs). Since traditional data rights clauses in the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulations (DFARs) don't apply to OTAs, it's important to make sure the Government acquires the rights its needs to technologies developed under these agreements. Vicki Allums, DAU's Learning Director for Intellectual Property, and subject matter experts from the Services will discuss these issues using real-life examples. To register, click on:
