JPEO-CBRND Other Transactions (OTA) Consortia
An OTA Consortium is a group of companies that may partner or team together to address DOD requirements. OTAs are designed to streamline the funding process for industry partners to address pressing needs while enabling the DOD to access technology that would otherwise not be possible. OTAs are managed by the JPEO-CBRND's Contracting Office, and each OTA has specific technical focus. Visit these links for contact information and opportunities!
Medical CBRN Defense Consortium (MCDC) and Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction (CWMD) consortia were formed in response to the Government’s expressed interest to establish an OTA with an eligible entity or group of entities, to include industry, academic, and not-for-profit partners, for advanced development efforts to support the DOD medical pharmaceutical and diagnostic requirements as related to enhancing the mission effectiveness of military personnel.
WHO CAN JOIN?
Companies that are part of the US Industrial base, as well as new and emerging non-traditional defense contractors, are encouraged to join the cosortia and participate in Federally-funded R&D projects. This includes traditional federal contractors, non-traditional contractors (companies that don’t typically participate in Federal R&D), academia and non-profit research institutions.
