Answering the federal government’s call for innovation, agencies are actively seeking projects that support innovation, using non-traditional procurement vehicles to fund said programs. That's right—Grants and contracts are no longer your only options.

From CRADAs and public/private partnerships to blanket purchase agreements and OTAs, non-traditional procurement/funding vehicles can expand your access to federal funding dramatically.

Here is how to get this advantage—before competitors even know these opportunities exist!

Register now for Grants & Beyond: Innovation Through Non-Traditional Funding Vehicles.

In this 90-minute webinar, Wiley Rein’s John Prairie and Brian Walsh use their expertise with both federal grants and contracts to show you how federal agencies are using non-traditional procurement/funding vehicles to fund innovation projects.

Expand your funding opportunities. You will learn how the government’s increasing focus on innovation is opening new avenues for grant and contract seekers. You will also gain practical guidance on where to find these non-traditional funding opportunities and how to pursue them. Plus, you will have the chance to ask your own questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.

Reserve your space now for guidance on how to start taking full advantage of all your options for funding your projects, including:

  • How the federal government’s focus on innovation is today’s procurement environment
  • Federal Government innovation initiatives, including DIUx and other federal agency innovation programs.
  • Traditional procurement vehicles such as federal contracts, indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity vehicles, GSA Schedule contracts, and grants
  • Non-traditional options, including Cooperative Research and Development Agreements (CRADAs), blanket purchase agreements, Outside Transaction Authority (OTA), challenge competitions and public/private partnerships (P3s)
  • How to pursue non-traditional federal funding opportunities

Do not miss this opportunity to learn how to make the most of all your options for winning federal support for your programs.
