Other Transaction (OT) Authority

Other Transaction (OT) Authority

Date: November 25, 2008
Creator: Halchin, L. Elaine
Description: An "other transaction" (OT) is a special vehicle used by federal agencies for obtaining or advancing research and development (R&D) or prototypes. Generally, the reason for creating OT authority is that the government needs to obtain leading-edge R&D (and prototypes) from commercial sources, but some companies (and other entities) are unwilling or unable to comply with the government's procurement regulations. Evaluating OTs and the use of OT authority is a challenging undertaking. This report describes the issue of OT authority as it relates to Congressional policymaking and regulatory actions.

Otter Trawl Explorations in Philippine Waters

Otter Trawl Explorations in Philippine Waters

Date: 1950
Creator: Warfel, Herbert Elmer
Description: A trawl fishery of considerable magnitude has developed in the Philippines since liberation from the Japanese in 1945. At the inception of the Philippines Fishery Program of the United States Fish and Wildlife Serve, the trawl fishery was using a Japanese beam trawl and was, for the most part, confined to Manila Bay. Realizing that the supply of fish badly needed by the Philippine public could be augmented by trawling, the program inaugurated exploratory fishing voyages to likely grounds and demonstrated the otter trawl in important fishing centers. Twenty-four areas were surveyed, and a number of drags sufficient to demonstrate the possibilities were made in each. The results are tabulated and described, along with the composition of the catch and catch by depth.
