MCRCO Division reduces the time between need identification, technological opportunity, and delivery of warfighting capability to the operating forces.  The MCRCO draws upon embedded support from Marine Corps Systems Command while collaborating with organizations such as the office of the Capabilities Development Directorate, Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Research, Development, and Acquisition; Naval Research and Development Establishment, Marine Corps Operational Test and Evaluation Activity (MCOTEA); Program Executive Office Land Systems; Special Operations Forces Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics; Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command; Office of Naval Research, and other Service and Defense Agency Stakeholders.  The MCRCO has no program of record responsibility or standard acquisition authority, however it equips operating forces for operational assessments with high maturity technologies that are safe for warfighter use. The key deliverable from the MCRCO is the Capability Assessment Report that supports the effective transition of capability to the operating forces through USMC and Joint Acquisition Commands.
