Due Diligence

RAE supports Due Diligence through a systematic approach, using a proven infrastructure of processes, tools, and capabilities.  Our approach is, in many ways, similar to that of the venture capital community, but is structured for the particular needs of government acquisition.  RAE focuses its due diligence on three areas that are the greatest challenges to technology transition:

  • Technical:  What are the risks associated with a technology meeting government acceptance criteria?
  • Business:  Can the technology vendor provide quantities of product in a timely manner and at acceptable prices to meet acquisition sponsor demands?
  • Programmatic:  What is the optimal window for insertion of the technology and what resources are needed?

Thoroughly vetting a technology and identifying potential impediments to transition up front minimizes overall program risk and increases the likelihood of a successful transition.
