DARPA’s Contracts Management Office (CMO) has the authority to enter into and administer contracts, grants, cooperative agreements, and Other Transactions in pursuit of DARPA’s research and development mission. CMO’s role is to serve as DARPA’s acquisition advisor and make awards in select, critical technology areas. Most DARPA awards are entered into on behalf of the Agency by the military Services, who assist DARPA with technology transition to the warfighter.
