### Help the buyer develop prototyping capacity
### Helping our partners develop prototyping capacity

One of the goals of Acq engagements (and [18F engagements in general](https://partnership-playbook.18f.gov/7-transfer-projects-back/)) is to impart strategies and techniques to our clients that will allow them to practice modular procurement on their own going forward, and on other projects.

We strive to intentionally include partner staff in prototype work so they have an ownership stake in the process and familiarity with how to use prototyping to support future procurements. We work to assess the capability of our partners to continue prototype work after our engagement is over, and intentionally structure the work to best help them develop the capacity for continuing to do it going forward.
