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. Curtis Jefferson
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.
Which items among an exhaustive list of data rights possibilities should a government program office pursue? This is one of the greatest challenges a program office must resolve. Selection of all items will certainly increase the probability of facing an unmanageable data rights strategy. This webinar will reveal an approach to selecting the appropriate data rights for software sustainment.
Please join Mr. Curtis Jefferson to learn how having the right data rights strategy will increase the likelihood of program success.
