The Technology Initiatives Screening Officer (TISO) provides responsive, value-added evaluations of commercial technology to senior leadership at MCCDC and its subordinate commands. These evaluations save time by pre-screening vendor-initiated requests to brief new technologies to senior leadership. The evaluations are conducted in accordance with criteria for relevance, feasibility, maturity and readiness for operational (or organizational) implementation. The TISO can also assist with the coordination of follow-on meetings with vendors of technology products recommended for further consideration.
The TISO function is not intended to restrict, monitor, control, oversee or otherwise mediate discussions between MCCDC personnel and technology vendors, nor does it impose any administrative burden on the part of MCCDC personnel in the course of their normal dealings with technology vendors. Use of the TISO function is recommended, but voluntary. Note also that TISO functions are focused on the evaluation of vendor-initiated requests to provide briefings or demonstrations to senior leadership; the TISO does not currently provide an active technology search capability.
