NASA Issues Request for Intellectual Property MarketingNASA Issues Request for Intellectual Property Marketing

NASA is issuing a Request for Information (RFI) on FedBizOpps (www.fbo.gov/) for no-cost intelectual property marketing. NASA requests information from U.S.-owned organizations interested in providing intellectual property (IP) management services (such as patent valuation, marketing, assessment, and brokerage) to NASA under a no-cost arrangement that could allow for revenue sharing upon license execution. Services may be provided to one or more NASA Centers.

NASA wishes to maximize the benefit to the public from NASA’s R&D investments that yield commercially valuable new technologies. Seeking no-cost methods to further advance the transfer of NASA-owned inventions will introduce efficiencies and provide increased value to the public through the introduction of new and effective licensing processes and tools. NASA recognizes that there are many business models in the U.S. for providing IP management services, such as patent brokering, using a variety of different transaction methods and platforms. NASA is issuing this RFI in an effort to better understand the full range of possible models and services available for assisting NASA with the transfer of NASA technology, at no additional cost to the taxpayer.

Organizations interested in responding to this RFI are encouraged to routinely monitor FedBizOpps for this announcement, as well as the NASA IPP website (www.nasa.gov/offices/ipp/home/index.html).
