The Manufacturing, Capability Expansion, and Investment Prioritization Directorate (MCEIP) established an Other Transaction Agreement (OTA) to enable rapid research, access to commercial solutions for defense requirements, and innovations from industry, academia, and non-traditional contractors. Defense Industrial Base Consortium (DIBC) members focus on identifying, developing, and testing cutting-edge capabilities at the speed of innovation. Led by the efforts of the Consortium Manager, this OT Agreement will accelerate Department of Defense (DoD) access to technologies typically reserved for commercial development. The consortium managed OT Agreement will enhance MCEIP’s mission of addressing defense supply chain issues, developing the industrial workforce, sustaining critical production, commercializing Research and Development (R&D) efforts, and rapidly scaling emerging technologies to build a robust, resilient DIB.
