Doing business with the US government means being awarded a contract or an Other Transactional Agreement (OTA). The two basic ingredients necessary for either a contract or OTA are a defined requirement and funding. Identifying requirements for game based training and virtual environments is challenging because much of the DoD’s training standards are not drafted in such a way that they accept or embrace training in virtual environments or game based training. Building the business case for game based training requires validation that the training environment achieves measurable skill development to meet the government’s training standards. Developers of game based training must demonstrate that their game based training develops skill to meet the government standard cost effectively.
