Open Environment Promotes Global Collaboration

The success of NCOIC is rooted in our ability to overcome many of the business, political and national barriers that inhibit collaboration. By creating and fostering an open environment, we help our members and customers share knowledge and address challenges so that, individually and collectively, they can operate more effectively.

To provide a framework for this global collaboration, NCOIC uses a set of carefully crafted processes and procedures that meet the intent of the U.S. Office of Management and Budget (OMB) A119 federal regulation. OMB A119 allows and directs U.S. agencies to solicit industry comments about the development and use of standards.

NCOIC’s neutral and legal working environment enables an open and ongoing dialog without conflict-of-interest and International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) issues. Our laboratory-type approach allows technical and business teams to discuss and explore interoperability concepts and issues as well as develop technical tools and processes for use within different markets and domains.
