Time: 1:00 - 2:00 p.m. Eastern (10:00 - 11:00 a.m. Pacific)
Who Should Attend: Government, Military, and Industry at all levels who want to learn about the tenets and principles of data rights and how to strike the proper balance between the government and the contractor.
Speaker: Mr. Shane Boulware
Data rights refer to the Government's rights to use, modify, release, display and disclose non-commercial technical data and computer software delivered to DoD components by contractors. The process of reviewing data rights markings in contract deliverables can be a complex and time-consuming task, even for the most seasoned data rights experts.
At this month's webinar we will discuss how the Airborne Warning and Control System Program Office was able to resolve and correct over 3,000 engineering drawings labeled with improper data rights markings and how with a proper contract vehicle, the cost of the resolution did not fall to the government.
Please join Mr. Shane Boulware to learn how having the correct data rights markings on engineering drawings can reduce future program sustainment cost.
