We're excited to announce the release of DIU’s FY 2021 Annual Report. In this report, you will find an overview of our key performance metrics, descriptions of commercial solutions we helped deliver to our DoD partners, and feature portfolio project vignettes. Highlights from this year include:

  • 26 solicitations published on

  • 1,116 commercial proposals received

  • 72 new Prototype OT contracts awarded

  • 8 successful transitions to DoD end-users

  • $892.7M in DIU and DoD partner contracts since June 2016

DIU continues to help the Department of Defense (DoD) embrace and adopt life, cost, and time-saving commercial technology. But there is much to do in the coming year. 

DoD must continue leveraging acquisition alternatives that facilitate speed, agility, and scaling; buy technologies that exist and build what we must; and continue to streamline our processes with flexible funding cycles. Doing this will enable us to quickly and decisively overcome operational hurdles across all of the strategic domains. 

Operationally, in FY 2022, DIU will continue to scale commercial technology solutions across the DoD and identify opportunities to work with our partners and allies to achieve integrated deterrence. Together, with our fellow innovation organizations, we will continue to be a front door to the DoD as we strengthen our footprint regionally, engaging with innovators from industry and academia to bring the best of breed technologies to bear.
