Introduction

Independent Research & Development (IR&D) continues to be a key source of technology innovation for the Department of Defense. Since last year, the Defense Innovation Marketplace website (www.DefenseInnovationMarketplace.mil) was launched, the DFARS rule went into effect, and the IR&D effort has become part of the Better Buying Power 2.0 effort to help "Incentivize Productivity & Innovation in Industry and Government."

Join us on Thursday, March 21, 2013 as Colonel Brooks McFarland, USAF, current IR&D Program Lead, provides an update on IR&D activities. Specifically:

  • A review of the initiative since 2011
  • Planned activities and future updates in 2013
  • The Search Tool: What Department users will see when searching company IR&D data

Most importantly, we would like to get feedback; from any issues to inputting R&D projects to how we can continue to improve the Defense Innovation Marketplace.
