ExecutiveBiz: What legal barriers do you see as ones that can be changed to facilitate more public-private collaborations?

Cliff Greenblatt: We actually can avoid barriers to collaboration by making sure the Government’s approach to intellectual property, licensing, and data rights is structured in a way that encourages collaboration.  Significant public-private collaboration occurs around the development, deployment, and advancement of technology for the very important Government missions that contractors support.  The Government’s approach to rights related to that technology can set the stage for a productive collaboration.  This includes many features already found in the acquisition rules, such as the Government agreeing to commercial licensing terms or the contract clauses that permit contractors to retain ownership of and reuse software and other technology.  These constructs establish a business environment that encourages technologies to be shared and advanced and attracts new technologies to the Government market.
