White graduation cap icon CON 2990V Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT)

OTA Simulation

This course is being piloted for direct registration via DAU Virtual Campus (CSOD). Click on "Apply for this training" button in the upper right-hand corner to register for an offering.

This Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT) is a highly interactive opportunity to practice Other Transaction Authority (OTA) methods. Students or teams are given a robust scenario consisting of various stakeholders demands (e.g., due to program office challenges, contract team dynamics, requirements developers, engineers, finance, legal, etc.). Next, each team engages in hands-on simulations, working through the requirement from “inception” to “award.” Common OT challenges surface in the simulation. Students and/or teams must work together to overcome likely roadblocks, yielding lessons learned that could be easily applied to future applications.
