ABSTRACT

CARDS Model Contracts/Agreement

     The Central Archive for Reusable Defense Software (CARDS) Program, 
sponsored by the U.S. Air Force (ESC/ENS) has been investigating
business areas that impact software reuse.  An on-going forum, made up
of DoD lawyers and contracting officers familiar with software reuse,
has been established by the CARDS Program to examine legal issues and 
concerns related to software reuse.  One primary finding from these
software reuse legal forums is: risk can  be managed by carefully
negotiating and drafting agreements.  This document provides sample
agreements and associated guidelines for implementation by the CARDS
Library staff.  They are based on the current CARDS Command Center 
Library's business, operational and qualifications processes and
concepts, as well as recommended policy changes.  This will allow the
CARDS Library staff to interact with its customers, suppliers of
components, users of the reusable components, and interoperating
libraries to help reduce operating risk, meet its operational and
technical goals, and meet the needs of its customers.
