International Agreements and Information Exchanges

Row of international flags

DTSA is one of several DoD stakeholders that reviews international cooperative Research, Development, Test, and Evaluation (RDT&E) agreements, projects, and information exchanges, managed by the Office of Acquisition, Technology and Logistics (AT&L). DTSA conducts technology security assessments of the proposed technology or information to be shared with foreign partners and determines whether it is consistent with existing information and technology transfer policies. DTSA may recommend changes to the scope of projects or impose restrictions to prevent unauthorized transfer of “crown jewel” technology and ensure the parties adequately protect military critical information.
