Commercial Off-the-Shelf Products and Commercial Services

The Commercial-Off-the-Shelf (COTS) and Commercial Services Community of Practice was created to disseminate information to Defense Acquisition Workforce personnel engaged in the acquisition of innovative, cutting-edge commercial technologies. This site is intended to address those areas of technology where the commercial market place is moving faster than the normal acquisition timeline for complex weapon systems, and for which alternative methods of acquiring these technologies is necessary. Examples of these technologies include information technology, micro-electronics, some sensor technologies, some radio frequency devices and some software products. Acquisition of these technologies requires innovative solutions.
