                                  General Information for Users

Use of the Intellectual Property (IP) Needs Analysis Process Template

1.      The purpose of an IPNA is to comprehensively identify the specific IP required for the lowest
        significant system component or configuration item of a capability.
2.      The IPNA helps identify critical IP that must be acquired or licensed in order for a capability
        to be used effectively and for its intended purposes. At the same time, the IPNA enables an
        assessment to be undertaken of what IP is actually needed as compared to what IP may be
        available.
3.      Accordingly the IPNA is an ongoing process and in the context of the procurement process
        should be updated during the various stages of the procurement lifecycle.
4.      Examples have been provided where applicable to further amplify the types of information
        that should be contained in various sections of the template. The example text uses a
        different formatting style; dot point italics, to differentiate it from the rest of the template. The
        examples are merely suggestions and not definitive prescriptions of what might be contained
        in each of the sections.
5.      All ‘Notes to drafters’ and ‘Examples’ must be deleted once the submission has been
        developed and not included in the version of the document provided to the delegate for
        signature.
Formatting the Process Template

6.      Within the template various sections of text are contained in table boxes. When modifying
        the template, if drafters wish to retain the text they should first cut the text out of the box
        (using Ctrl x), paste it into the document (Ctrl v) and then delete the box. If the text formatting
        is lost, simply highlight the text and then select the relevant formatting style from the ‘Styles
        and Formatting’ drop down menu on the MS Word tool bar.


Defence Intellectual Property Manual

7.      This Template has been created on the basis of, and should be read in conjunction with, the
        Defence Intellectual Property Manual (DIPM). The DIPM is the principal reference document
        for guidance on IP dealings within Defence. For further information on any of the terms within
        this document, or for further guidance on Intellectual Property within Defence, please refer to

         INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY NEEDS ANALYSIS PROCESS TEMPLATE


PURPOSE
Note to drafters: The Acquisition Team should complete this Intellectual Property Needs
Analysis (IPNA) as a part of the planning phase of any Complex Procurement or Strategic
Procurement. In accordance with DPPM Section 3, IP will be a consideration in almost all
Complex and Strategic procurements in Defence.
This IPNA process template sets the foundation for the management of Intellectual Property
throughout the acquisition.
   1. The purpose of this IPNA is to provide guidance on the effective and efficient management of
      IP within the procurement life cycle. This IPNA outlines the IP owned and/or licences held by
      the Commonwealth relevant to the proposed acquisition. It will also detail any potential IP that
      may be acquired or licensed under the proposed contract and the extent of ownership or
      licence that the Commonwealth will seek to obtain.
   2. This IPNA will also detail whether specialist clauses must be developed for inclusion in the
      request documentation.
   3. Annex A will detail how IP issues are to be managed or mitigated in the context of a Risk
      Management Framework. Furthermore, this IPNA will detail specific IP issues and this will be
      included in the overarching risk assessment applicable to the acquisition.
   4. Further information on valuation of IP may be found in Chapter 2.5 of the DIPM, located at:
      http://intranet.defence.gov.au/dmoweb/sites/DMOLegal/docs/DefIPManual122009V1_12.pdf#
      page=67

DEFINITIONS AND TERMINOLOGY

Note to drafters: Any specific terms and definitions used in the acquisition should be included

      may be obtained in the Defence Intellectual Property Manual (DIPM) Chapter 2.4 located at:

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY OVERVIEW
Note to drafters: The following table is used to identify and summarise key IP issues that need
to be considered throughout the procurement.

Note to drafters: Table 4 below can be used as a template for the completion of an IPNA for a
procurement.
In the early stages of planning for a requirement, Column A and Column B may be at a much
higher level, as it will only be as the exact requirements are defined that the WBS items can be
used to break down Defence’s IP needs. This further illustrates the need to update the IPNA at
the various stages of the procurement process.
Column C is about identifying the level of IP rights that are required for each item. It is likely
that many of these will be similar across items, but it is important to consider each item
separately.
Column D is where Defence sets out the any particular noted on the IP Rights it requires.
These inform the rights set out in Column C. For example, Defence may require the rights to
use for Commonwealth purposes, not just Defence purposes. This should be noted in Column
D.
Column E is where Defence sets out existing rights – or Background IP – that Defence owns or
licenses in respect of the relevant item. This is relevant where Defence is providing specific
GFM or GFI to the contractor.
Column F sets out Defence’s preferred method for securing the necessary IP rights. Defence
can secure IP either through ownership or a licence. Where ownership is required, the reasons
for this should also be outlined. Further information on licences can be found in the DIPM at:
http://intranet.defence.gov.au/dmoweb/sites/DMOLegal/docs/DefIPManual122009V1_12.pdf#pa
ge=21
Column G sets out the consequences to Defence of not securing the relevant IP rights
identified. This may be as simple as an inability to support the system, or it may relate to
additional costs, safety issues, or the need to pursue a separate capability.
Column H sets out ways in which Defence can mitigate the effect of the consequences
identified in Column G. For example, if Defence can not obtain a right to manufacture an item,
it may negotiate contractual rights to purchase additional items from the contractor for a
particular price. Alternatives should also be identified in this column. For example, could
Defence seek a broad licence to IP rather than seek ownership.
Column I requires Defence personnel to undertake a risk assessment to identify the risk posed
to Defence by each of the consequences set out in Column G.

ANNEX A – CONDUCT OF A RISK ASSESSMENT AS PART OF AN IPNA

RISK ASSESSMENT PROCESS FOR IPNA RISKS
1.    It is not always possible for Defence to obtain the IP Rights that it desires, and often the costs
      of doing so may prove to be significantly higher than initially anticipated. Accordingly, it is
      important that Defence’s position not only provide the Commonwealth with the necessary
      rights to the IP being acquired, but also reflects value for money.
2.    As part of an IPNA a risk assessment should be performed to assess the risks of failing to
      secure the necessary rights for each aspect of the capability being procured. This may
      include consideration of risk mitigation measures that can be taken to reduce the risk
      likelihood or consequences.
3.    In undertaking such an assessment, the IP may be grouped into larger modules, or where the
      consequences are different for different packages of IP, it will be necessary to perform
      separate assessments.
4.    The risk assessment process in this context involves three steps:
       a.        assessing the Likelihood of Defence not being able to secure the desired IP rights;
       b.        assessing the seriousness of the consequences of this failure (bearing in mind
                 Defence’s statutory rights and any risk mitigation factors – such as obtaining lesser
                 rights);
       c.        the treatments to be implemented in avoiding or reducing the risk, including those
                 solutions in obtaining similar rights; and
       d.        recording the overall risk level as part of the IPNA.
5.    To find the DMO Liability Risk Assessment Template which can be utilised for the purposes of
      this IPNA please go to:

6.    Further information on conducting a Risk Assessment with respect to an IPNA may be found
      in Schedule 7 of the DIPM, located at:

      Need. It should be used as a guide only.
