Many Federal agencies and universities have developed large portfolios of technologies. In order to keep these portfolios up to date, organizations ask the NTTC to perform Portfolio Analyses of the technologies' technical and market value. This enables strategic decision making about commercialization efforts. Analyses also help to identify technologies that no longer warrant maintenance.
In addition, the NTTC has investigated 970 technologies as to their Patent Classification. Technologies are reviews to identity where they would fall in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office's patent classification system.
