Jenner & Block

Other Transactions

The Federal Government often uses “Other Transactions” — a type of contractual authority that is exempt from many statutory and regulatory requirements for government procurement (FAR) contracts--in developing and procuring advanced technology.  Jenner & Block’s Government Contracts Practice has a unique background in this area, derived from hands-on work in drafting, negotiating, and administering some of the largest Other Transactions ever awarded by the Federal Government for prototype weapons systems and for NASA activities.  We also have significant experience with smaller dollar-value Other Transactions that are used for research purposes.
